I used a program called Spotmau PowerSuite Pro to image a computer of mine. it was a 120Gb hdd and it took the image off just fine or so i though. but now, a few months later when i go to put it back onto another 120Gb drive it fails with a status of
can't write to file descriptor 4 (error 27: the drive cannot find the sector requested.)
has anyone ever used this program and or seen this error before?
i've tried formatting the disk both quick and full with no errors and i've also ran a chkdsk on the disk with all of the options chkdsk j: /f /v /r /x no errors
i've tried it on 2 different computers one running vista ultimate and one running windows 7 beta
on the vista machine UAC is disabled and on the windows 7 machine i right clicked and ran the program as administrator
i've tried it both with the "installed" version and the "bootable" version
so in otherwords i've tried everthing "i" can think of and i'm looking for any other ideas anyone can think of
the only other thing i could think of is both of the os's are 64bit but the bootable version shouldn't have cared
any help is appreciated
this is the results of the chkdsk
