I'm wondering if Norton Filesaver is a problem program? On another forum site there's a guy who rails against it, says it screws things up, uses up huge amounts of disk space in an invisible fashion. Is there any truth to this?
I always install Norton Utilities on my harddrives so I can check and optimize data before I burn it and stuff like that (I create a separate 700mb partition when I format my main harddrive to copy data into first before I burn it to CD). I've been in the habit of turning off Filesaver after installing it, but I just noticed that I forgot to turn it off the last time I installed Utilities. I'm moving to a new harddrive, and am using Carbon Copy Cloner to clone my system to the new harddrive. I noticed that in the list of items to be cloned there are four Filesaver items: Filesaver Data, Filesaver Index, Filesaver Volume, Filesaver Volume2. These must be the "notorious" invisible Filesaver volumes. I"m thinking I'll just delete these from the list of items to be cloned, and make sure Filesaver is turned off on the new harddrive system clone. The guy on the other website says Filesaver shouldn't even be installed and that it's up to nasty things even if it's turned off. Anyone got any opinions? thanks
