New Drive not recognized

Post by midiman » Thu Jul 14, 2011 2:24 pm

I have a PC with a RAID configuration. I just installed another SATA HD of 2TB as a regular non-RAID drive which works perfectly in WinXP. I thought I would make 2 image files from the 2 RAID drives to the new installed HD - this process always worked before when I made images to an external USB2 drive using the two R-DRIVE IMAGE boot floppies.
However, the new drive is recognized in the screen for selecting the partitions for copying, but it is NOT appearing in the screen showing the drives where the image is to be stored. The new drive is a single, primary partition of almost 2TB. Why doesn't it appear in the second screen?

I assume you have formatted the new drive properly.
Which version of R-Drive Image do you have? Chances are high that you won't have this problem if you use the latest one.
