http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=175737 I triggered this problem in *Vista SP1* (where it's supposed to be fixed) by using the latest DD to resize a couple data partitions. Event Viewer now always reads this: "The default transaction resource manager on volume E: encountered a non-retryable error and could not start. The data contains the error code." Per the thread, I've run the fsutil resource etc command against both my Windows partition and volume E, and rebooted, but it changed nothing. Any ideas?
