In build 889 I selected the Active Acronis Startup Recovery Manager. It rebooted and did a bunch of stuff with parititions - my diskhas drives C, E, F, G and H plus whatever Dell put on it plus the Acronis Secure Zone. After the reboot - everthing worked BUT PartitionMagic could no longer access the drive saying that some partitions started at illegal places - specifically at a sector of 6 instead of 1. According to PM all partitions must start at sector 1 of Cyl/HD. Again, the system works but I can no longer make changes to partitions. PM said the only cure is to use FDISK to wipe the hard disk and start over. However when I did a restore, Acronis set the partitions back to their illegal values (the backup I used was made AFTER the problem occurred). Is there any way to get TI to go back and reset the partitions to "legal" places and MOVE DATA as needed. I can change the partition start sector but since the data did not move I got MBR errors when trying to boot.
