Using msbackup (WinME) to backup the contents of my entire HDD, I get a message to the effect that I've exceeded the maximum allowable size. So in order to get a complete backup, I have to do two separate passes of my 30GB drive. Anyone aware of an msbackup size limitation?

MSBACKUP was included with the retail version of WinMe to help maintain backup functionality after an upgrade to Windows Me. However, Microsoft acknowledges that msbackup's functionality is limited (although they don't get very specific on this) and they recommend obtaining a third-party backup program for this purpose!

I use PowerQuest's Drive Image and find it works real well.
