R-Drive 4.7 and Windows 7 partiton resizing

Postby napoleon1815 » Sat Jan 22, 2011 9:34 pm

Hello! I am a new user of R-Drive, but very experienced with various disk imaging products. When I restore an image and resize the partitions during the restore, Windows doesn't boot...inaccessible boot device error. This is Windows 7 x32 Professional. I have three paritions...the 100mb system parititon (which I do NOT resize), a C: drive and a D: drive I do resize (shrink or grow). When I just restore all paritions to their original sizes, it works fine and boots up after the restore. Just when I resize at least one partition it does not work. Any ideas? Thanks.

As I understand, C: is the partition where the system is installed. Sometimes (sometimes!) Windows cannot start when R-Drive Image has resized it. We are working on that issue now.

Great, thanks! Yes, C: is the actual Windows installation.
