Don't think so. SIW2?

But F: presents zero problems in performance.

At this point perhaps another image backup called for.

Check performance.

I would run File System check from PW disk, or chkdsk.

Don't change the drive letter - leave it as F.

Paragon did a great job there.

Well done for persevering jon.

My 7 partition sees itself as D - I have no problems, it doesn't need to be C.

Yes image it .

Are you in Singapore?

PW mounted the drives wrong? which is what Paragon sorted?

Never happened in 100+ of these. What do you think caused it?

Just askin.

+1 Jon. It was a long slog. Glad SIW2 was around.

Just shows PW isn't perfect.

Luckily Paragon have great freebies.

Thanks to Greg and SIW2 I thought we would get there in the end despite my occasionally impatient cock-ups Thanks very much for your perseverance I am impressed with your knowledge and have learnt a lot not too mention picked up one or two usefile utilities.

A great forum which has proved to be a real lifeline.

I suppose I can now admit to having worked with computers since the 1970's when they filled large rooms, have been through DOS and all the stages of Windows, not to mention UNIX and LINUX but since Win98 and XP I have 'maintained an interest' but not really got into the nitty gritty of system fixing until now.

So much for HP's advice not to upgrade to Win7.

Now there is just the question of the other 4 [XP] computers in my home network ...

Many many thanks to both of you.

In answer to SIW2 I'm in Kuala Lumpur.
