Many thanks Bill. You just saved me having to drive 400 kms to pick up my Adobe discs. Thankyou.
So glad that it worked for you, and glad to have saved the drive.
If you have a USB hard drive with you, make a full backup for easy restore
The product I use is at http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/image-for-linux.htm
Image runs off of a bootable CD via Linux (the Zip you download includes a program to make the bootable CD) and it reads EVERYTHING on the drive, even the hidden registration information, so everything is restored when needed... and you may restore the image to a brand new drive in case of a crash, and not have to re-install anything
