After installing Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator (Platinum Version 6.2.0130) it was taking my PC twice as long to boot-up. In fact everything slowed up and gradually ground to a halt. My previously hidden Dell Diagnostics FAT 16 partition was now visible in Windows Explorer and had been allocated drive letter F:\ previously allocated to my external hard drive. Being very unhappy and uncomfortable with this unexpected and potentially dangerous turn of events I decided to restore my hard disk using Acronis True Image 8 (Build 774) but got the message: File System Error 24: MFT bitmap corrupted. Not only had ECD6 disabled my virus protection without my permission but had also written to the hidden partition and corrupted the hard disk! Further work with Acronis resulted in error message E000101F4 “Acronis has not found any hard drives” and E00070021 “Cannot create image of the logical drive C: because it is currently in use by running applications or the logical drive contains bad sectors.” I’m sure Acronis users will be pleased to know that I eventually successfully restored my hard drive C:\ by using my Acronis emergency boot CD which restored a backup image from my external hard drive. For me, this was the first time I have needed to use Acronis for recovery and it has saved the day! Would be pleased to hear comments from others with similar experience and possible solutions to the Roxio problem.
