Grant, I had a major computer disaster earlier this year and lost most things on my hard drive. I am running XP Home. It seems that Norton defrag and the XP file format did not quite mesh. AS I was advised, Norton was not too careful in placing the files where it said it did. Lots of file corruption occurred and lots of part files. I can only assume (ass-u-me) that Norton has corrected this problem but I am not willing to give it a try again. If you are and it works just let me know. Thanks, CYS... -----Original Message----- From: jfw-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jfw-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Grant Hardy Sent: Sunday, December 14, 2003 4:12 PM To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx; JFWLite List Subject: Norton SystemWorks Defrag And JAWS Hello Lists: I am looking at purchasing Norton System Works. I have heard funny things though about the effects that the Defrag program have on the JAWS authorization. As the JAWS authorization is placed under certain sectors of your hard drive, I've heard using Defrag will damage the auth. Is this true and how might this be fixed?
