    Hard Drive with DDO

    In order to install an 80Gb hard drive on my old system (wouldn't recognize anything over 32Gb) I had to use Dynamic Disk Overlay but when I tried to clone my old (smalller) hard drive using Norton's it said it wouldn't work because of the DDO. I have now upgraded my computer (Pentium 4 but still running Win 98 for now) and have my old drive as master and the new drive as slave. How do I get rid of the DDO on the new drive, I have tried reformatting it but Ghost still won't clone it. I want my computer to look at the new drive as if it just came out of the box.

    Re: Hard Drive with DDO


    What DDO did you use to originally install it?
    Most HD utilities that come with the HD will also have an option to UN-install the DDO.
    Just reformatting will not get rid of the DDO. ( as you found out ) The removal utility plus re-partitioning, then re-formatting the HD is what you will have to do. Of course, you will lose whatever is now on the HD.
    So run the HD utility and look for a removal option. If your drive is Maxtor or Western Digital you can download the utility from thier websites. Most probably any other types will also have them available for you.


    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
