    I just downloaded TI's trial to clone my C: to an external HD in a USB 2.0 enclosure. To bad that didn't work, since upon rebooting (but before Windows could fully start) the drive wasn't detected.

    So I make an image since I'm really only concerned with preserving all my files. I turn on the drive and get L: & M: as usual. Run TI and select Explore Image for the first time. It wants to give a temp drive letter and I select one partition and give it N:

    I go to Windows Explorer when done and now the external drive is gone. L: & M:, but N: is now available and I can work with the contents.

    I unmount N: via TI, nothing happens. No L: & M:. I shut off and turn on the external drive and nothing. I check the drive's status by forcing Windows Explorer to show me L: and M: via the Address bar. Both show up, but in Properties they are "RAW".

    Why the hell did that happen? I have rebooted, but I'm REALLLLY hoping that on a reboot I can turn my external drive on and have it work like it used to! But I just wanted to post this now while it's still fresh in my memory. Not able to reboot immediately right now.

    Edit: Ok, I managed to reboot. All works fine again. Wonder if the initial problem was from TI or Windows?
