I was running ATI 8 and I tried to remove the TI Secure Zone but generated an error message. I then upgraded to ATI 9 but still could not remove the zone. Also, I am running Norton GoBack but had it disabled when I tried to remove the Secure Zone. Assuming I cannot remove it through Acronis software - does anyone out there have a suggestion regarding partitioning software (Partition Magic?) to acheive this end and how I would go about doing it? I run Windows XP SP2 so I would need to convert the zone to NFTS file system and recapture the space to the main partition. I am not receiving an answer to my second email contact with Acronis - and so I am turning to forum readers for a solution. I appreciate anyone's help.
