Re: write backup to cd or network

hi :-) you're trying to save your /dev/sda1 splitting in archives of 700mb on /root, but it seems that wherever /root is, there is no space left! you should make those 700mb split archives in another folder, on a unit with enough space left: i suggest you to have at least your /dev/sda1 occupied spa...

Re: hardlinks errors restoring xp ntfs to vm disk

Hi, i could send the program to you - it's about 27 meg 7z ultra compressed - BUT i feel it would be of no use to you, and you could easily experience license issues, i think. the program itself had no error, it was just a problem of "virusdefs" files, so virus definition updates (that were quite ol...

Hi, i'm sorry, but as you read here: and then ran again fsarchiver savefs on /dev/sda1 just to check if the problem is there or gone... well...

Re: hardlinks errors restoring xp ntfs to vm disk

Ok, now: 1) booted a livecd and created a small empty partition (gparted) 2) booted in winxp, and formatted the small partition NTFS 3) copied all the ERASER.SYS files in different folders on that partition 4) it just happened that, during boot, symantec virus definitions updated, so the 200909* fol...

Re: hardlinks errors restoring xp ntfs to vm disk

I'll boot the real xp and try what you suggested For now i've found another ERASER.SYS on the partition, which does not have the problem. it's in /mnt/windows/Programmi/File comuni/Symantec Shared/VirusDefs/BinHub and has: - only 1 hardlink (reported by ntfsinfo) - no long name (no POSIX namespace) ...

Re: hardlinks errors restoring xp ntfs to vm disk

Thanks for that. The archive has been created using fsarchiver-0.6.8. In the past I have seen a very similar problem which was a problem in ntfs-3g. But the error code is a bit different ("Input/output error" instead of "Invalid argument") It would be worth trying to recreate the archive using fsar...

Re: hardlinks errors restoring xp ntfs to vm disk

i see only now that ntfsinfo syntax needs a device specified... i tried, but: [email protected]:/mnt/windows/Programmi/File comuni/Symantec Shared/VirusDefs/20090927.002$ ntfsinfo -vi 19725 /dev/sda1 Access is denied because the NTFS volume is already exclusively opened. The volume may be already mounte...

Re: hardlinks errors restoring xp ntfs to vm disk

well, 1) the partition is win xp pro 2) getfattr log file is just # file: ERASER.SYS system.ntfs_dos_name="ERASER.SYS" 3) ls - li ERASER.SYS returned 19725 -rwxrwxrwx 2 root root 102448 2009-09-28 15:15 ERASER.SYS 4) so i guess 19725 is the inode number BUT (triple checked) ntfsinfo -vi 19725 return...

Re: hardlinks errors restoring xp ntfs to vm disk

ok i will try. I'm not sure to completely understand what you mean after (i understand i have to launch the ntfsinfo command giving the inode but...): inode number by "ls -li sample-file" then dump the attributes by "ntfsinfo -vi <inode-number>" : I thought again, and while I am sure that the restfs...
