As part of a grand backup plan, I purchased a Maxtor 250GB SATA drive and a Maxtor SATA /150 PCI card. Installed the XP Large drive patch and confirmed that windows xp can initialize and format the drive. Since I have been in love with Acronis products for a long time, I assumed that TI 7, build 613 would be able to do its thing with this drive. Since xp will only format a large drive in NTFS, the first thing I asked TI7 to do was initialize and format the drive in FAT32. It did so, however, it made some horrible error rendering the drive useless. Both windows and bootable versions created the same thing. I then tried formatting the drive with the Acronis Disk Director Suite. This program bombed on startup as long as the SATA drive was in the system. So my question dear Acronis is, when will there be support for these Maxtor products??
