    Hi
    i have 2 questions


    1) one hard disk with 3 partition , for example C: D: and E:
    a mft corruption in C: , can damage or expand, extend on D: and E:


    2)to avoid mft corruption it's better operate with disk director offline for the partition in use (for example where i have vista or xp installed)


    thanks
    have a nice day

    Acronis Support rarely posts on the DD forum (they made one post in the last twelve months). You may want to try Live Chat support if you want a quicker answer from them.

    Are you having problems with DD causing MFT corruption?

    I don't have much experience with MFT corruption, but I wouldn't think that it could spread from one partition to another. Each partition has its own format, its own MFT, etc., and shouldn't be affected by problems on another partition.

    It's best to use the DD CD when you need to make changes to the booted/system partition. In most cases DD will need to reboot to make the changes to a running system partition. However, DD can do (and possibly always does) the changes as part of the booting process instead of booting into the Linux (Full Mode) version of DD. Personally, I don't recommend doing it this way because sometimes DD gets caught in a loop and it takes some fixing to get Windows booting properly. In my opinion, it's better to get Windows out of the process and do it from the CD.

    Whichever method you use, if it works properly, it shouldn't cause any MFT corruption. I always recommend that a backup image of the drive (or, at least, the partition) be created before making any changes. There is always the chance that something can go wrong no matter which partitioning software you use.

    I suppose you can. If you do, I would include a link to this thread and specifically request that you would like an answer from Acronis Support and that they haven't responded to your Live Chat and they don't post in the DD forum. Just be aware, that since this is a DD topic, the thread may get moved to the DD forum. However, if you include any TI questions also regarding the MFT problem, the thread will probably remain in the TI forum.

    You could also try sending a PM to Acronis Support and see if you get a response that way.
