    In the newer versions there is an option to force backups despite of allocations errors. 

    Considering that very often the windows backups are failing because the snapshot creation is causing filesystem errors, with the current backup procedure, the only way to create the backup every time would be to ignore the errors. However, this is not possible with the current version of ntfsclone.

    The "--force" option does not make ntfsclone to ignore the "Cluster accounting failed" errors.

    Hope that in the new version it will be possible to ignore this errors. Event more i would like to see an implementation of reliable backups for windows VMs.
