Background A long standing issue discussed in the Forum has been TI's failure to mount an image (assign a drive letter). This seems to only affect a few clients, sometimes solved with a fresh install. Registry solutions have been proposed which only work for NTFS OSes like Windows XP, 2000, 2003, but can't help Win98 since it doesn't have certain registry keys, nor ability to handle multi-string entries. See for example http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=131145 My Problem Running TI8 in Win98SE I can Explore TIB files created from a FAT formatted partition but not TIB files created from a NTFS formatted partition. Details So you will ask if I checked the following 1. Computer plugged in - check 2. Operating system - reasonable but now unsupported, Win98SE 3. TI version - TrueImage version 8, build 937, English, licensed 4. Computer - Pentium II, 400 MHz, 192MB RAM but same results with a PIII, 500 MHz, 512MB RAM 5. Do I know anything about computers - check, since punch cards, mainframes, UNIX (the PII is my sandbox computer, Win98 and Win2K dual boot, plus have Microsoft Virtual PC with DOS6, Win3.1, Win95, Win98 and working on getting XP if I can get the Acronis problem fixed) 6. Verified the TIB files - check 7. On the PII, in WIn98SE, I can explore/mount 7MB FAT partition TIB but not a 1.6GB NTFS partition TIB, get the error "Cannot Assign a drive letter to a partition from the image archive" 8. On the PII, in Win2000, running TI8 build 774, I can explore/mount both 9. On the PIII, Win98SE, 512MB RAM (so more RAM), TI8, build 937 I can explore/mount a 1.3GB FAT32 partition TIB but not a 7MB or 1.6GB TIB file (both were imaged from XP Pro) Summary TI8 can only explore/mount TIB files that were imaged from a FAT/FAT16/FAT32 partition if TI8 is running in Win98 (FAT32). It can not mount a NTFS partition (I figure it also can't restore the NTFS partition to a damaged NTFS partition since FAT32 cannot see NTFS. But I hope the boot CD can do it) TI8 can explore/mount TIB files from FAT or NTFS when running in a NTFS operating system This does not appear to be a RAM problem, but a limitation of the parent OS. Nevertheless, I would like to explore a NTFS TIB from Win98. The CD rescue boot disk doesn't have explore function. Is there a solution?
