SubjectRe: [: Re: RAW NTFS Partition]


Anton,

I will downlaod and review where the code is at. Write support is
going to be very tough at this point -- they have changed some of
the on-disk strucutures again for the journal and several meta
files. However, with the DOJ settlement, they will be required to
share this information, so our job could get easier. I will
approach some folks and see where they are at. Hopefully, it won't
go down the way it did last time.

Jeff
