    In the past i had problems uninstalling FDISR from Windows 7, the problem was uninstalling left behind the $ISR folder which contained snapshots that were not deleted by uninsall.

    Heres the solution:
    I had 3 snapshots: (Baseline) where i installed FDISR after a fresh windows installation, just drivers, no software, (Primary) which is a copy of baseline but taken after software was installed, and (Copy of primary)

    First boot to copy of primary, and delete primary from FDISR using remove snapshot
    Then boot to baseline and delete copy of primary,
    when these 2 snapshots are deleted you can then delete FDISR from add/remove programs and uninstall it, as the snapshots are gone, and all you are doing now is removing the program nothing else is left behind to cause problems :D

    Oh! and dont forget to now defrag your drive to resize it back to normal
