Re: Restore problem
Well, I'll assume the MVP's and other "experts" don't have a solution. I'll
keep searching. Meanwhile I shall disagree with John and AJR because Vista
lets me backup the contents of drive C to another drive on the same physical
disk, I'm just not able to restore it. I do the same thing on my XP computer
which has only one physical disk and I don't have a problem restoring. So it
must be something with the configuration. I may reformat as a last resort.
