Windows 7: Genie Timeline 2

01 Oct 2010   #1

Main: WIN7 Pro, 64 bit; Notebook Windows 7 Home Premium
Genie Timeline 2

Windows 7, Home. (upgraded last year)

HP notebook DV 6928.

Original OS: Vista, Home Premium.

120GB external F for most files. (Aluratek 120GB).

1.5TB external "W", for music and video files and backup.

Both are USB connected.

Computer C drive has program files and startup related files, and some Desktop files.

Installed Genie Timeline freeware 2.1 version. Two days ago.

My quirky system requires me to unplug F drive prior to hibernation or when computer is asleep, that is, during hibernation, or it will not restart, awaken correctly.

With F unplugged it starts correctly and pre- Genie, simply reinserted the F drive and all was well.

Can't figure why, but this seems to assure correct awakening. Always.

"W" works fine always.

So, with Genie installed I seem to have to use the safely remove hardware to assure things seem to go well.

BUT now when I reinsert the F drive via USB a message comes up saying I must reformat the F drive. At first I nearly lost my breath.

It take a very long time but the F drive is then recognized by my computer.

Any thoughts on either issue: the F drive needs to be unplugged prior to awakening, or the second issue,


the Genie Timeline saying I must reformat my F drive, which is definitely incorrect.

Though the name on this thread is Genie Timeline, please let's deal with that first.
