feedback from this group. The system runs Windows XP with a C: and D: 60
GB logical volume, each installed as the only partition on separate physical
drives. I boot Acronis (a disk copy utility) and make an *image* copy of
the D: partition to an *identical* physical device. The copied partition
is reporting back as a different size than the source, with a different
amount of free space remaining on the target drive. As this is an image
copy of a single partition between identical devices, I find this result
nearly impossible to understand.
Would this be a possible indication of a hidden volume/partition somewhere
on the current D: drive? How can I explore this further, and what tools
that can be booted without starting Windows could help me explore this in
detail? I assume if this is a rootkit at work that booting Windows will
hide from the OS most of the relevant evidence.
Re: Image Backup of Drive Different Size Than Source
I know when you and I see *image*, perhaps we like to think of mirror
like images on the target. However, do you think a heretofore
unaccounted, or under-documented block size factor is different in the
target when compared to the source?
Perhaps a query to the Acronis folks would make things clear.
