    I recently received my Device Label Ravage, and I think it's really cool to have Ravage just roaming around the desktop. Sure, he doesn't do much, but it gets me through work.

    I just don't like the idea of carrying him around everyday. The drive's physical size and memory size simply doesn't make it practical either, because I work with much larger graphic files everyday...and let's face it...it's a pretty large drive.

    I realize we can download the software on Takara's website, but it doesn't work without Ravage inserted.

    From what I can gather, there are two partitions on the drive...one with the software, and the other that has the available space for the user to store files on. Does anyone know how to clone the drive files onto another USB drive, or onto the computer itself and make Ravage still appear?

    i normally hate to be a linux evangelist, given it's not ideal for everybody.

    but if you have trouble detecting the hidden partition under windows, add a little linux partition to your HD, boot to ubuntu and try gparted, copy files back onto your windows partition and see what you've got.

    GParted -- Welcome it's supposed to be the dog's danglies for partition editing. careful though!

    gparted has a live CD but i've never used it.

    that's assuming it is a hidden partition, obviously.

    if it's not have you tried imaging the drive?

    I'm pretty sure the software just sits and waits for the device ID of the drive to show up. Cloning the drive wont help if I'm correct.

    What Software does Ravage have on him?

    I wanted to get him, but 2GB is nothing these days -how much space does this other software take up?
