Re: Ghost 15 will no longer recognize internal backup drive (it used to)

I think you're on to something. I recall about a month ago Norton chkdsk detected a problem with the MBR of the backup internal disk. It automatically fixed the MBR, so I didn't give it much thought.
Norton Utilities has a utility specifically for repair of MBR. I didn't run it on the backup internal drive because it gave a scary warning. "This operation will overwrite existing disk boot loader code with Windows disk boot loader code.This operation could make your system unbootable".
Well, I don't boot from my backup drive. Is running this repair utility worth a shot? This MBR is stored on the drive itself, right? It can only affect my backup drive, right? Why is there boot code on my backup disk anyway? I'm confused - sorry if I sound like a newbie.
