Looks like this forum has found two bugs in our BackItUP program.
It would seem that NRESTORE creates an NTFS/FAT32 partition at once, instead of just the NTFS partition as it should. This issue should be resolved in our latest Nero 188.8.131.52 posted on our website.
I was able to backup and restore an NTFS partition on a Dual Boot Comptuer that had W2K and XP installed. The backup of W2K went without problem. I then booted to XP and deleted the contents of the C: drive that contained the W2K system. Then I booted to the Dos Floppy and restored from two DVD's. I was then able to reboot from the W2K system and all my data was restored.
BackItUP wrote the Boot programs, the nrestore program, and an empty .dat and considres that to be a succesful backup. This issue was not duplicateable by our Engineers in Germany. However, I was able to duplicate it on one of my Dual Boot systems here in my USA Lab, once. Hopefully I can duplicate it again, and save the log file to forward on to Germany so they can look into this.
If anyone else on this forum is able to duplicate this symptom, please send me a copy of your Log file so that I can add this to the bug report to assist our Engineers in resolving this issue. You can send it to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for all your assistance. It's very greatly appreciated by everyone at Ahead Software!
