Friend, I have PowerQuest Drive Image 7, which runs perfectly
in Windows XP ..... When I bought it, it came with Drive Image 6
also, for earlier Windows versions. I have Partition Magic 7 and
also 8, and both run perfectly in Windows XP.....

It may be true that while those software programs are actually
running, under their own control, they may be running in DOS...
but I don't care. Why does it make a difference to you? And
by the way, I have 5 HDs, a mix of WD and Seagate, and find
no differences other than the jumper settings.
