Hi Ladies and Gents, I have recently loaded Acronis Partition Expert 2003 build 278 on to my system (Yep, the free one) I used this to resize the C: disk partition on my (single) hard disk, using free space from my D: disk partition. The resize was 10GB. The operation was run using the Wizard. C: from 5GB (700MB free)=> 15GB D: from 55GB => 45GB Operation 1 of 2 (enlarging C: ) appeared to run successfully but at the end of this operation Windows XP Home Edition crashed and then rebooted and recovered "from a serious error". Now Acronis recognises 15GB on C: (but still only 700MB free) and 45 GB on D: What happened to the 10GB transfered? Also, bizarrely, Windows Explorer recognises C: still as only 5GB but D: at the reduced size of 45GB I seem to have "lost" 10GB of disk space.... Incidentally, I also have the problem where the Boot Disk Creation option only seems to generate a blank CD-R when explored in Windows.... Heeelp!
