I am using Acronis True Image Server 7.0 for Windows and is facing error: "Failed to write data to the image archive file". And is getting poor quality media. Please suggest on how to overcome this issue.
Acronis True Image Server 7.0
As you can imagine this can be quite frustrating! "Failed to write data to the image archive file.
One I found is that when it runs into a problem during an imaging process, it gives you an error — then promptly quits the whole process and exits.
A possible reason may be poor media quality." Poor media quality? Over a network? Unlikely.
Possible reasons for this failure could be packet loss or insufficient drive space on the network drive.
It is sometimes the case when cloning to a network drive.
Regardless, the error message should be more descriptive, and it should have an option to retry or even restart using a different media source/location.
Simply exiting isn't a graceful failure.
It turned out that I didn't have enough drive space on the network drive I was pushing the image onto, but the software should check for the estimated space needed before it starts.
