    Hello,
    With Win 8 machine have had problems merging drives - taking days and then failing. Today tried to start HDM 12 and it hung. Tried to uninstall and reinstall. It won't uninstall, repair or reinstall. I get a message:
    Error 1327. Invalid drive E:\
    HDM 12 is running on C:\
    The hard drive it chewed up the data on (the drive was fine and has no errors) was on E:\ It no longer exists.
    Any ideas on how to force an uninstall?
    Cheers,
    Terry

    Discovered through Microsoft support that Error 1327 usually means a drive that doesn't exist is allocated in registry (see, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/327763 ). Removed the errant drive entries and things seem to work ok now. Did a Wipe on the chewed up drive (292Gb) which took 4 hours - about right timewise. Also now HDM 12 can uninstall but will leave it for now as this appears to solve the issue. Any advice welcome!

    Just for future reference, if you have problems uninstalling HDM, I use Revo Uninstaller Pro to uninstall most of my programs. Does a good job of finding and deleting the "leftovers" as well and also has a "Forced Uninstall" capability for those programs that stuck "half in and half out."

    Hope this helps. Have a great day.
