Windows 7: Permissions and Seven

Permissions and Seven

Hi,

A few days ago, I restored an image of my Vista partition from within the 6801 partition. ( vista is 1st partition, System, Boot, Active ).

IT restored fine, booted up fine, but I couldn't get into Vista. My Vista admin account didn't have permission.

Tried changing permissions in 6801 for the Vista partition, without success.

I never need to set up users , so have little experience of setting permissions and the Help file is incomprehensible - to me , at least.

Sorted it out by deleting 6801 partition, restoring Vista again - using same image and the Macrium bootable cd.

Then tried the opposite - restoring 6801 image from within Vista.

That worked fine and had no trouble getting either o/s.

Seems Seven (6801 anyway ) is much tighter with permissions. If that's the case, it may turn out to be a real nuisance.

Anyone else had a similar experience?

Hi SIW2,

Whenever restoring a image, it is usually best to do it from boot and let it format the drive or partiton it is being restore to first to avoid this type of problem and others. At least that has always worked out best for me.

Glad you got it sorted.

Thanks Shawn,

You know how I like to find things by experimenting.

Curious thing is , if you restore an image from within Vista - no problem.

If you restore from within 7 - you can't get in.

Seems permissions are organised differently.

It may be it only happened because the image I restored from within 7 was the System partition, which it wants to protect?

Interested to see if anybody else comes across any permissions issues.

Hi Guys,

I know you have to be careful with permissions on partitions that can be seen by multiple NTFS aware operating systems.

I normally have no problems with DATA and tend to leave the System partitions alone.

with all the installs I've done recently with various builds of Seven this is my permissions on my pictures folders.

will have to check which SIDs relates to Vista and 7000 and remove the rest
