When attemptong to create a partition, has anyone been plagued with this error and found a solution? I'd be interested to hear and grateful for advice.

I always run scandisc and defrag prior to using PM - have you tried this?

or run scandisk /fix in dos - and run defrag in safe mode - or if u cant get scandisk running in dos - do in safe mode - In partition 4 - it usually gives this type of error saying problems with clusters - corruption - scandisk should do the trick

If you go to their website you will find a listing of all error codes and the various escape routes!

If you are Win98 start with Floppy Start disc and type FDISK/MBR then try running PM

Running scandisk and chkdsk/ f through several times has cured this problem - my O S is WindowsXP Home.
Your kind responses are much appreciated. George
