Acronis tech support referred me to driver update for Acronis. After installing them and doing a backup, this time the program crashed Windows. I also created an Acronis boot disk, tried to backup from there, and after 2 seconds it told me the backup was one.

I'm not sure if the Acronis crash happened at the same spot as the previous error message. But this is starting to feel like I have a hard disk problem with at least one cluster that is confounding Acronis. And I also have Acronis problems. The thing is, I had chkdsk check for errors in files and on the surface.

Is there something better than chkdsk for checking the hard disk. Something that can show me which cluster is bad and maybe which files are sitting on it. Norton Utilities comes to mind, but I stopped using it years ago because it would take over the computer.
