Thanks volksman, I'll give that a try tonight when I get home from work.
Knowing MS, that actually sounds likely.

I might be wrong but a chkdsk on that partition from Vista may help. I
can't remember the error an NTFS partition will barf when it needs to be
scanned but they will refuse to mount if a chkdsk is needed.
Hope that helps!
