I just purchased and downloaded DD 10 from the Acronis website and the program runs fine for the most part. I split the 2nd disk in my system (with only data on it) with no problem, but I was wondering if anything different needs to be done to split the bootable drive (1st drive) into an OS\programs partition and a seperate data partition. It seems to work just fine in DD, but when it reboots the C: drive still remains exactly the same, whether I carry data over or just try to carve off the free space into a new partition (to move data to it later). I am wondering if there are things that need to be disabled or enabled, or is the process somehow different for system drives to be partitioned. By the way the drive is the C: drive, WinXP home. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. Thanks. p.s. I read somewhere earlier that I should update the drivers, disable the logging and then try it again (i will try this if this is the only option), I am just wondering though, if I just downloaded the program two days ago, will the drivers need to be updated? Also, has turning off logging actually helped in this case?
