    Having re-partitioned my hard drive, I've now got a Bootwiz folder taking 4.50Gb of space on C:\.

    Does anyone know if I can safely delete or move this folder to free up some space?

    Cheers and Merry Christmas!

    Hello jpearce,

    Thank you for using Acronis software (http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/).

    This folder includes configuration files of Acronis OS Selector.

    Please download Acronis Report utility available at http://www.acronis.com/files/support/AcronisReport.exe and run it, create a report and send it to support@acronis.com This would provide us with detailed information on the hard disk partition structure.

    After that we will let you know if you could safely delete it.

    Thank you.

    Thanks Andrew.

    I installed the program but I received an error message stating that a hard disk drive cannot be found!

    I've run a quick search on the Bootwiz folder and no file has been modified at all in the last month - I don't know whether that's any help at all?

    Regards,

    James

    Hello James,

    Could you please let me know what program you installed? Acronis Report utility isn't installable, it just creates the "report.txt" file and puts it on your desktop. Please run it and send this report file to support@acronis.com. Please include reference to this thread in your request.

    Thank you.

    Cheers Andrew - just ran the exe again and it created the report.txt file which I've just emailed to Acronis Support.

    Thanks for your help.

    James,

    Are you sure that this is all the content of the report file? This is really strange but there is no information about your hard disk drives in the message you posted above.

    Could you please do the following?

    - Run Acronis Report utility again and select the "Create bootable floppy" option;
    - Insert a blank floppy disk in the floppy drive and proceed with creating the bootable diskette;
    - Boot the computer under consideration from this diskette and wait for report creation process to complete;
    - Send the report.txt file from the floppy disk to support@acronis.com.

    Thank you.
