    Fkasner, guess you didnt go back to the original thread, so thought I'd try
    one more time. Just what do you mean by image back-up. Have the new drive
    formated in NTFS & on my Acronis # 9 I have a "complete hard disc back-up"

    You also mentioned "that Since then have also produced 5 additional
    incremental additions to
    > the image of my C: drive" ? Meaning you added to the original image you
    > back up- ?
