Acronis True Image Home (Run List Corrupted)

December 15th, 2008 1 comment

I started to receive a message on my new Vista box in Acronis True Image Home that looks like this:

 

Information    12/15/2008 8:07:49 AM    Locking partition C:…
Error    12/15/2008 8:10:00 AM    Operation with partition "2-0" was terminated.
Details:
Run list corrupted (0×7001C)
    Tag = 0×89D94B01B483E221

 

To rectify this issue just run a "CHKDSK C: /R" which should clean up a few NTFS attributes. This usually will happen if you hard-cycle your system for some reason.

Fix errors on Windows 2003 with MySQL 5.0+

December 4th, 2007 No comments

The error “Fatal error: Can’t open and lock privilege tables: Table ‘mysql.servers’ doesn’t exist” is caused by some incomplete privilege tables. Please run the following command at a command prompt:

  # cd "Program FilesMySQLMySQL Server 5.2scripts\"
  # mysql --force -uroot -p mysql < mysql_fix_privilege_tables.sql

This did the trick for me - not too sure why this wasn’t part of the install but all is well now.
