Yikes, what an unpleasant surprise... I had received the Returnil Premium 188.8.131.5207 version that was offered at GiveAwayOfTheDay a few weeks ago, had been using it, exploring it's capabilities, and generally liking what I was seeing. I wanted to make one change in the way I had initially set the program up, however. My available free disk space on my C: system partition was getting very low after I had installed Returnil there, down to about 750MB. I had originally installed my Virtual Partition there on the C drive, and later realized it would have been better to put it on one of my other available partitions that had more space available, so last night I decided I should just go ahead and change where the VP was installed (and also change the drive designation from the initial "z" I had given it, to a different designation). Following the directions posted in the faq and repeated a few times here in the forum, I began the procedure to modify the properties of the VP: I wasn't sure whether it would be better to modify the VP with it having been mounted, or leaving it unmounted, so I rolled the dice and dicided to mount it before I tried to modify it. After mounting the VP, I quit Returnil (I did not reboot at that time, as I had not had System Protection running - I tend to use System Lock more often). Then I began the recommended procedure to modify the VP properties, as laid out in the FAQ and repeated a few times here in the forum: went to StartMenu/Programs/Returnil/Uninstall, and clicked on the Uninstall program. Next screen, I chose the "Repair" option. I checked over the general options that were selected ("Do/Don't start up at logon", "Add to Explorer Context Menu", etc.), clicked on the box to add Returnil to the Explorer Context Menu (which I figured I must not have done in the initial install), then came to the section that offered the option to change the size of the VP, via a slider control. I set the size to a bit larger than it had been before, but was dismayed to see that there was neither anywhere to specify what partition to locate the VP on, as I had thought there would be, nor anywhere to designate the drive letter to assign to the VP. I thought perhaps the option to select what partition to locate the VP on and assign a drive letter to it might possibly come up in a further screen, so at that point I figured I would just click "OK" or "Continue" or whatever it was, which I did. At that point I got a messge saying the program couldn't install the Explorer Context thing (I think it might have said a file it needed was in use by another program, or else that it couldn't find something it needed to do that installation step -- I can't quite remember), and I was presented with two options by the program: either 1)Skip the step of the installation which had been unable to be performed ("Not Recommended", said the dialogue box), or 2)"Cancel". I decided I would Cancel the action, which would give me a chance to look around and see if I could figure out why it hadn't been able to install the Explorer Contex Menu entry (or just to double-check to see if maybe that was already installed, as I really didn't know for sure), so I clicked on Cancel. Ka-Boom! It didn't cancel the un-install ---- it seemed to think that it was in the middle of an installation process, so it **cancelled the INSTALLATION** - meaning it UNINSTALLED Returnil! I was left with no program file any more, no nothing, except a few registry entries referrencing Returnil, or RVSYSTEM or RVSDISK. Waaaaaaaahhhhh!!! I know that with the new 2.0.1 and higher versions of the program, a person supposedly no longer has to go thru the uninstall/repair routine to modify the properties of the Virtual Partition, but hopefully if there is still a "Repair" option in the new version, cancelling out of that repair option does not uninstall the program, as it did for me. I'm bummed, to say the least. Going through the registry after the unexpected un-installation to just clean up whatever bits and pieces there might be hanging around, I did delete a few left-over references to the path where the program .exe had been located and some remaining references to RVSYSTEM.SYS. There were also a lot of references to RVSDISK, most of which didn't reference Returnil directly, as far as I could tell, and I wasn't sure RVSDISK was something that was exclusive to Returnil or if it might be used for some other program or service as well, so I just left most of those registry references as they were. So... just wondering... has anyone else ever aborted the repair process and reported this behavior?? Also wondering if my not finding any screen to choose what partition to locate the Virtual Partion on is due to my being mistaken about being able to locate it on a partition other than the System Partition (or maybe if a person "wants their Virtual Partition on a partition other than the System Partition", they are supposed to just create a regular directory somewhere in a non-system partition, and consider that their "Virtual Partition"?? Meaning that there actually never WAS any option in the setup to locate the VP somewhere other than the System Partition?? I would really like to know if my disaster here was due entirely to my own misunderstanding of things, or if I intrepreted the information I've read correctly and there actually SHOULD have been a way for me to designate a different partition to locate the VP on. Also, are those RVSDISK registry referrences something specifically related to Returnil, in which case I can go ahead and delete them, or is that something that is used in other system functions besides Returnil?? Thanks in advance for any post-mortem assistance and consolation... Robert..... PS... Ohhhh.... or was it perhaps my decision to mount the Virtual Partition before modifying it that may have led to this situation?? Should I have left it unmounted??
