im using PQ drive image 5.0 (yes, it's old). I made a drive image of a
machine with 2 partitions. One is a 30 meg service partition, the other is
an 18 gig partition. I want to restore this such that the second partition
grows to whatever amount of space is left on the hard drive after the 30meg
partition is created.

The only switch I see having to do with partition sizing when doing a pqer
/? is /RPP (resize partitions proportionally).
I have no idea what this switch does or how it works... I intuit that it
would grow BOTH partitions. Any ideas? Thanks!

What's wrong with the GUI?

why do some people feel it's necessary to answer a question with another
question? its for an UNATTENDED install.
