    Backing up dual boot Win7 / XP Pro SP3 System

    Thanks for the replies. It looks like Acronis has a trail D/L, and Comodo is also new to me and worth a try. I'll likely give both a shot, and I wrote to Acronis sales / support so I'll report back here as to their response. I would think that this is a pretty common issue for those of us that...

    Missing 1/2 of a drive, pretty sure it's a missing partition.

    Hi and thanks for reading this. Last week I got a new PC, yay me, which meant my wife got my old PC, not so yay me as it really really needed an O.S. refresh. (Image wouldn't work too many hardware changes since I last took the time to deal with it.) I was already here because I'm going to be...

    Well, I actually thought I was getting an account just to say thank you, and get access to the occasional jpg, etc. So thank you very much for a great util. Now the but, but that was before the insanity set in on me today. So, like everyone else, I'm going to post a problem question...
