after using easeus todo workstation version 3.5 to restore a image i made i noticed some weird things one running chkdsk gave me mft errors in the bitmap.. second and this is WOW the offset for the partition that started as 1024k was now 31k!!! how on earth this happened as i selected to FULLY restore the whole image including mft etc... so i went ahead and reinstalled fresh, this time using active@ first to make a image from the winpe disk then another from the easeus (workstation version winpe) boot disk. i went ahead and rebooted to the easeus disk once again. restored this image with the SAME RESULTS!! the 1024k offset now was 31k for the partition and it was showing 1024k of free space instead of 0 in diskpart... any ideas / thoughts or anyone have issues like this i love that easeus is free and is very full featured and would like to recc it to customers who need a good free solution but n8ot sure i can now. i was even considering using it on a couple systems myself. and now i may be glad i didnt. these issues do not occur with either active@ or ifw and both restore perfectly with a normal 1024k offset and no mft errors.
