I just tried running DW 220.127.116.1126 (still current as of late last year and quite stable - yes, I know there's a newer version now) on MS VPC 2007 SP1 and encountered the message "This is not the last created volume of the image backup" when attempting to restore (or otherwise access - e.g., validate or mount) an image. It turned out that this message was displayed only when the size of a backup image exceeded around 4 GB (not with 3.6 GB, did with 4.7 GB), so I'm guessing that for some reason it got confused either by any file larger than FAT32 could support (the images were on NTFS) or by anything larger than would fit on a single conventional DVD (after a quick Google around I did try renaming such files to make sure it wasn't a trailing number in the name that confused it, but to no avail).
I can try recreating this image in smaller pieces to see if that helps, but thought I'd ask here as well (if only to let others know that there might be a problem).
Thanks for any insight you can provide.
Edit: I also tried the DW bootable CD (same DW version) in the VM but it just hung while trying to boot up, which may well have been a different problem (VPC 2007 doesn't pretend to be able to boot everything, but AFAIK it does try to run everything in a supported virtual OS).
