There is a solution for increasing the size of an NT 4.0 volume. I l have used this option before and it worked very well and the volume size at that time was more twelve MB on the NTFS system.
BTW, I am using a KVM switch and a utility for USB support for keyboard, mouse, and usb printer, and it works like Windows XP, no problems at all!
Finally, what I've done today was copy several partitions to another location using BootIT NG by the Terabyteunlimited company, and formatted the NT40 volume to prepare a restore from a dvd image job I burned yesterday.
This restore was done w/o the usb support utility, but I will be installing it very shortly. At bootup, there are no error messages, and things are back to normal.
Again, thanks much for your speedy reply.
