    Is anyone out there using Nero 5.578 to burn CD backups of hard drives containing the Windows XP O/S?

    When I run through the steps (from the File menu - Burning HD Backups) a popup says "Your selection contains partitions using the new NTFS 3.1 file system of Windows XP, which Nero doesn't fully support. Sorry but Nero can't backup this drive"!

    This conflicts with Nero's on board "Help" (How to create a hard drive backup with Nero) which says that it "supports NTFS file systems"?

    I'm confused. Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.

    Well, Nero doesn't support the 'newer' ntfs apparantly. Another option is to make a disk image file and burn it to multiple cd's using nero or store it on another partition/hard drive.
