    Probably a stupid question. My hard drive has failed and I am now trying to recover it with this program. My C drive shows a red flag. What does this mean? It does not say in the help file.
    Thanks for responses.

    A red flag denotes the active partition. This partition (C: in your case) contains the operating system that will be started when you start the PC.

    If you have other operating systems installed in other primary partitions, their partitions will be marked with green flags, which denote inactive partitions.

    Does this choice of colors seem backwards to you like it does to me? Usually the color red is used to denote stop or alarm or bad and green is used to denote go or normal or good, isn't it?
