    Hi,


    I have acronis os selector on my system (a 200 gig hd).


    So far I have:


    1 70 gig win xp home partition
    1 30 gig win xp pro partition
    1 20 gig partition for windows me (set up yesterday).


    I seem to be having trouble with files copied between the xp home
    partition and win me.


    I downloaded nvidia drivers, and audio drivers into "MY DOCUMENTS" on
    the ME particion, when I was in the xp home environemt.


    I checked the files - and they seemed to be ok, so I extracted the
    audio drivers into a subdirectory, and copied a few more files onto the
    fat32 winme partition - all seemed ok from within xp, so I rebooted
    into windows me.


    The nvidia driver is coming up as a "non win32 application" (it is the
    win9x driver downloaded directly from nvidia.com) - it ran ok from a
    zip disk...


    The folders I created seem to contain random files, with a supposed
    size far bigger than the actual size of the folder.. Again a copy
    made onto a zip disk is fine.


    Any ideas? one of my thoughts is that my XP pro partition is set up as
    c:. and when winme boots that is also set up as c: so maybe a
    conflict here? is there an issue with using XP to copy files onto a
    fat partition?


    Thanks

    Hello dannyr,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Multiboot Managing Software.

    Could you please explain what problem with Acronis OS Selector you have? Also I recommend you to contact Microsoft Support about your problem.
