I don't know if anyone can actually answer this, but it's worth a try. My file system is NTFS. While attempting to image my boot partition with the Drive Image boot disks I got an error telling me that a Drive Manager was installed, but not currently running, and that the program couldn't continue. I downloaded Seagate's Drive Wizard and it told me there wasn't a Drive Manager present. I contacted Seagate support and they agreed, based on the data I sent them. I contacted PowerQuest, and they said that there MUST be a Drive Manager program in the boot sector. I tried their FDISK /CMBR idea, but that didn't work. The last e-mail I received from them suggested that they could try some additional fixes, but that they'd be more harmful than helpful. They didn't provide details. The other thing that bothers me, is that I installed Turbo Tax, which contains C-DILLA this year. C-DILLA writes data to sector 33 in the MBR. Has anyone else run into this problem with Drive Image, or do you have any ideas on how I could work around it, other than a low-level format? Do you think the C-DILLA crap could be confusing Drive Image? Thanks again!
