    Ok here's my problem, I run DriveSnapshot as Administrator to take a image of my C partition, everything goes fine until I try to restore. When I try to restore the partition structure from windows, snapshot, restore, select image, Then when I go down in the graphic, to the left, right click {HD1} restore partition structure my computer crashes. I really need some help with this.

    PS Its my fault I did'nt read what DriveSnapshot supports, If Easter reads this please help o_O Thanks RSpanky

    Although I don't use Vista, it sounds (from your post) as if you ran DS from within Windows to restore your C-partition and if that's what you actually did, therein lies your problem!!! - DS can't restore the C-partition when 'normally' running Windows (nor can any other disk-imager!) - in order to restore the C-partition you must either boot DS' DOS recovery diskette or boot into a 'live' Windows environment (using a BartPE CD or UBCD4W for example) and then run snapshot.exe. ;)

    Hth,
