This has been fixed
This article applies to:
Acronis True Image Home 2011
You have Windows 7 or Windows Vista machine with enabled
User Account Control and Acronis True Image Home 2011 installed; You configure a backup task to create a backup on an external drive or any other removable media without scheduling automatic validation;
You run the backup task or let it run on schedule, and detach the external drive;
You reboot the machine;
You get the following notification in the lower-right corner of the screen on every Windows start:
Operation has failed.
Backup validation Task execution failed.
Description: See operation log for details.
Two issues in the product:
Even if not scheduled, validation still tries to run on shutdown, and fails because the backup file is inaccessible.
The notification should be displayed only once, but it is not removed from the database because of the User Account Control, and thus is displayed on every Windows start.
This has been fixed. The fix is available in the latest released build of the product. See
Acronis True Image Home 2011: Updating to Build 6868.
You can also use one of the following workarounds to get rid of this message:
1. Remove the particular notification from the registry:
Download the executable according to your operating system type:
How can I tell if my computer is running a 32-bit or a 64-bit version of Windows?
To find out if your computer is running a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows in Windows 7 or Windows Vista, do the following:
System by clicking the Start button, right-clicking Computer, and then clicking Properties. Under
System, you can view the system type. Open the downloaded ZIP file and run the .reg file;
Agree to the User Account Control prompt:
Agree to the Registry Editor prompt:
This will remove only the current notification from the database. Thus, the issue may re-appear in some time (e.g., after you configure another task, run it, and detach the drive as described in
2. Disable User Account Control (requires machine reboot):
Start -> Control panel:
Click User Accounts again:
Turn User Account Control on or off:
Uncheck the box and click
Reboot the machine:
Start and type in user account control. Select Change User Account Control settings:
Drag the bar down to
Reboot the machine.
If you disable User Account Control, the current notification will be displayed once again on the next reboot, but will not be displayed anymore. All the next notifications will be displayed only once.
3. Disable all system tray notifications displayed by Acronis True Image Home 2011:
Start -> Run -> msconfig to launch System Configuration utility; Switch to
Startup tab and un-check the following entries, then hit Apply and OK:
This solution will disable Acronis True Image Home Monitor application responsible for displaying notifications, and thus notifications will not be displayed on every Windows start.
(!) This workaround disables all notifications shown by Acronis True Image Home 2011 - e.g., task successful completion notifications, user interaction requests, etc. The task statuses still can be monitored via Acronis True Image Home 2011 user interface.
