Acronis Clone Disk Operation Failed Error

You may have seen some Acronis Ture Image cloning problems in forums, and we list the two of these problems as below:

"I have a 250GB HDD in my laptop, and I was planning to replace it with the new 500GB SSD drive. So I used Acronis True Image to clone my 250GB HDD to SSD drive, but I got the “Clone Disk Operation Failed” error message. I tried it twice and the error still appears. Any idea what I could do?"

"I have added a second WD 160GB hard drive to my Dell desktop, there are some data that I want to clone with Acronis True Image, when the cloning process completed around 20% and the program give me this error: failed to run the task. I have CHKDSK my WD 160GB drive and found no errors. However, I still cannot accomplish this cloning operation. Any help would be appreciated."

Except for these two errors, you can also see other error messages like the following:

  • Failed to execute the task script. 0x10002 Error #1364;

  • A specified authentication package is unknown 0xFFF0;

  • Error 0x00640067+0x0009FFFF.
