We'll need more information than that. Where did you get Go Back 3. I remember that Sonic had a application named similarily but that is/was a Symatec/Norton program. What is your operating system? Were are you trying to install Go Back? Is your XP on you "c" system drive?

 

How many partitions do you have on that hard drive? What did you use to make the partitions?

 

Do some spell checking before posting. With all the errors, it appears that you just threw something together without any real thought. My response was in line with your post - no real thought.

From Wikipedia (no guarantee that this is correct:

"Incompatible products

Due to the changes made to the partition table, this can cause problems when dual booting other operating systems on the same hard disk. It is possible to retain dual-boot compatibility, but can involve saving the partition table before enabling GoBack, and after enabling GoBack, re-writing the partition table back to the disk (after booting from a different device, such as a Live CD).

 

It may also be necessary to disable GoBack prior to using certain low level disk utilities, such as formatting software. Such low level utilities which do not first check for the presence of GoBack can (in combination with GoBack) cause data to become corrupted. Another example of an incompatible program is the Windows version of Acronis Image For Windows. GoBack is also incompatible with products such as Drive Vaccine PC Restore and RollBack Rx - as these products require access to the MBR (Master Boot Record)."

Are you talking about Disk Management, in Computer Management? That doesn't make much sense.

 

Tell us a bit more about your system, your drives (PATA, or SATA), and how you partitioned them (what utility did you use, Windows, or a third party tool?) how many physical drives, logical drives, and their sizes.

 

I've used GoBack, and the only issue I ever had with installing it was that it didn't like what one of the Maxtor utilities had done in a partition, so I had to find a utility to clean that up. GoBack needs the partitioning to be "clean" to work, obviously, and it sounds like however you partitioned your drive, it's not "clean".
