  2. Can you do the following steps and email me the log file?

    Under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Asr,
    create a new key called LogFileSetting

    Under LogFileSetting, create a new DWORD value called EnableLogging.
    Right-click that value, click Modify, and then enter 00000001 (hexadecimal)
    or 1 (decimal)

    Under LogFileSetting, create a new String value called LogPathName.
    Right-click that value, click Modify, and then enter C:\asr.log

    Now, reproduce the problem and send me the resulting asr.log file. When you
    are done, delete the registry entry you created.

    Also, can you send me a screenshot of your Disk Management screen? Please
    use my email address minus "online."
