I just /had\ to ask WHAT is the deal here ? . why are *some* disk imaging programs affected by only *some* defraggers? Why are *some* SysRestore/FDISR types hit by this? WHY, OH WHY are *some* file sync utilities susppected? . why isn't there a proper listing anywhere of compatible backup/defrag combos? . what are the precautions one should undertake, for, say Acronis TI 8 or FDISR or bootIt NG or Paragon Exact-Image? annoying, ainnit?
