Some time ago I posted a two part question about lockups running Vista Home
Premium and about one of my logical drives on my external HD not being
available when running Vista.
Here is how I finally solved the problems:
1. I used Acronis Disk Manager to adjust the sizes of those two logical
drives, then copied the files from the problem drive (using my XP computer)
to the other external logical drive. Then I did a full format of the problem
one and all of a sudden I have that one back. Now I can transfer my files
back to that logical drive.
2. I finally bit the bullet and used the restore feature of Vista to
redo the operating system. Now I no longer have any lockup problems and
Vista is running the best it has since I first started using it. Only hassle
was restoring the important programs I use with Vista.
It took a lot of time to resolve the above but so far it has been worth it.
