I tried Disk Director for the 1st time yesterday (run from a boot CD of the latest version) and it wouldn't start up. It displayed "Analyzing partition C:..." and appeared to have hung at that point. This seems a little odd as the free GParted utility read the disk fine, and BartPE with the free utility MBRWizard read & fixed it. The disk was just a standard IDE drive with 1st partition NTFS and 2nd partition FAT32. Windows 98 setup had been run and aborted, which is what had messed it up. To fix it with MBRWizard I just needed to change the active partition back to the first one and delete an empty partition at the end. Suffice to say I was not impressed with Disk Director. Is this problem going to be fixed soon?
