Just had a thought.
Having installed the new drive I booted-up using the Windows Me start-up disc which I had created when my old drive was in place.
Having got to the command prompt, I ran FDISK to setup my new hard drive. When I chose to create a Primary Partition, I don't recall the size I chose. Would the default size have been the capacity of my old hard drive, if I chose to create a Primary Partition of that size would that leave the rest of the hard drive unaccessible? Would this explain why Drive Image crashes when I try to make an image of C:?
Am I making sense or is the frustration getting to me?
Thanks for your help.
