IIRC, he touches on the same issue you raise. Do a Google on >"ghost site:langa.com" for more info. > >- Dan Hi Dan, Browsing this side made me more and more convinced that I need to find a replacement for Ghost? It also lead me to these sites : 1) http://www.diydatarecovery.nl Using this Demo-tool showed me exactly what was going on. Resolving the problem however was not allowed without registration. 2) http://www.goodells.net/multiboot/ptedit.htm This site explained the MBR in detail and the usage of PowerQuest's Partition Table Editor (ptedit.exe) Not having a lot of confidence in Partition Magic, I booted in DOS and used this PTEDIT Blanked out the FAT32-entry from Ghost and rebooted in WinXP. The Diskmanager now showed the correct disk size with one partition as it used to be ! Removed the Virtual partition-file that Ghost has created in C:\ Finally I uninstalled Ghost 2003 on both of my PC's. So you may not have giving me the answer, you certainly lead me to it ! Many thanks for the input, Chris PS : Has any one any experiences with the products of Acronis ? http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/ __________________________________________________________________ )() ()( __ ____ ____________________.
