This morning I have tried to create and restore an archive file of my Windows 7 Professional system. The creation process seemed to have completed without any problems (no errors were reported). However, when I tried to restore the archive I just created I receive a number of errors about symlinks (errno = 22). Then (after restoration) I tried to boot and login to Windows. Booting went fine, however I was unable to login to my system (neither my administrator nor my regular account works). I get an error about failing to load the personal profile. Now there is something special about my Windows setup: I have installed Windows to the first primary partition (C:\) and afterwards I moved the Users directory to a dedicated partition (D:\). Then I created a symbolic link from C:\Users to D:\Users, which seemed to work flawlessly. (The complete description of how this can be achieved can be found at http://lifehacker.com/5467758/move-the- ... -windows-7.) So, I created the symlink in Windows as follows:
Code: Select all
mklink /J C:\Users D:\Users
I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me on solving this problem. I am aware that I probably have not provided sufficient information to get a full understanding of my problem. In that case, please let me know what other information you need and, if possible, also which commands I need to issue to obtain that information (I am still relatively new to Linux). Thanks in advance for your time and suggestions!
FYI: I have compiled FSArchiver myself from source on a Fedora 13 (64-bit) installation. Currently I am running fsarchiver 0.6.10 (2010-05-09).
