Help with Winclone

  1. I wanted to expand my Boot Camp Partition and followed Winclones instructions. I come up with errors and I haven't been able to reinstall Windows through Winclone. I have 3 Winclone images and none work. Here is a copy of the log:

  2. I've had similar issues with Winclone. There was a long thread about this on the Winclone forum some time back, with many suggestions from the developer and NO resolution. I finally just gave up trying to expand the bootcamp partition using Winclone. Not worth the headache.

    I do check back from time to time to see if there has been an update, but the current version is still 2.2. It's a great backup/restore tool, but the resize business is just going to give you high blood pressure.
  3. Thanks for the reply. I researched this issue for quite awhile and it seems that Winclone restore was affected by Snow Leopard. There is more than a few of us that are out of luck. Maybe the next version 10.6.3 will allow the restoration process again. I guess a Windows backup would have been prudent.
