True Image error message. How to deal in XP?

  Simsy 22:29 02 May 2006

Hi folks...

been having a little problem for a couple of days so I decided the easiest was to do a restore...

I used system restore, to a couple of days ago, (before I noticed the problem), but that didn't cure it, so I guess the problem was already there but just not noticed by me...

Fortunately I'd made a "True Image" of my system a couple of days before, so I've restored that and all appears to be well...

However, when going through the TI procedure, after telling it where I wanted the image restored to, I got a warning/error message, as per this picture... click here I carried on, and as I said, all seems to be well...

But I don't understand what the indicated problem is, or the advice it gives me...

I assume by "operating system disk tools" it means defrag and check disk? I haven't done a defrag yet, as defrag says it doesn't need doing... and I don't know where to find the XP version of what 98 called Scan disk.

I'd welcome explanations/suggestions of what the TI message is saying the problem is, and what it's saying I should do about it!!

(I really was OK with 98!!)

Thanks in anticipation,

Looks like you have a MBR problem =Master Boot Record. You need to First check the disc by going to My Computer, Double click it then right click C:\ click tools click on check the disc and put a tick in box to Auto Fix then restart the computer and see what comes up
