    After replacing v9 with v10, I made repeated failed attempts to create a backup. This was reported one week ago, and I recieved a ticket number and am waiting for some reply.

    In the meantime I attempted to run windows check disk utilty, and now every time the computer boots I get the message:
    Cannot open Volume for direct access....
    The computer then continues to the desktop.

    How do I unlock the drive so check disk can run?
    (Windows XP home)

    thanx....

    I agree with Ralphie uninstall TI10 and try chkdsk. If it works, reinstall TI10 and try again.

    Are your running SP2? This was also identified as a XP problem that was fixed with the release of SP2.
