I have used Powerquest Drive Image 2002 for a LONG time. Then, I was sold over by the simplicity and boot CDs of IFW (Image For Windows). However, last night I had to do a restore of one of my PQ Drive Images. It would not boot. None of my images from Drive Image 2002 would boot. I checked these often to make sure they were "ready' in an emergency. The only thing different is I had installed and created an image using IFW. I find it an odd coincidence - I had been so high on IFW/IFD. The only thing I can figure is that someway, somehow, IFW touches the MBR. The bottom line was that after installing and creating an image with IFW, I was no longer able to quickly boot into a solid image created with PQ Drive Image 2002. I did a quick fresh install of XP, installed Powerquest Drive Image 2002 as the only program and quickly, and easily, restored the image I wanted - I was back in business. No problems. My ONLY software change had been the IFW image creation and verification. Anyone have any explanations - that make sense?
