Windows 7: TeraCopy has trouble working with some Macrium Reflect mounted images

I imaged both disks, and am currently restoring from D:.

This has been done according to the Sysprep-Kari method described at length here in 7-Forums, and it's precisely done to enable independent restoring of system and data.

In fact, I'm not even trying to restore an image of D:. Just to restore selectively my hand-picked data folders after a clean install. ProgramData and AppData's have already been built up from scratch all over again on D:, all lovingly crafted by hand.

Okay. I don't have the same setup but I tested using PC Hunter.

Mount Macrium Reflect image and browse it using PC Hunter. Navigate using the "File" tab to your problem folder and right click on it in the left pane. If nothing shows up in the right pane (folder contents) then it must be a junction point. In that case try to locate the actual folder rather than the junction point. If contents do actually show up try copying the folder and select destination and see if it copies intact.

Just to add - my own strategy for restoring missing files after rolling back system to a previous image.

Copy current system before rolling back (image with Macrium Reflect) let's call it System Image A

Restore old working system image.

Mount System Image A and copy any missing or changed files that do not exist in current image from System Image A using TSR Copy Changed Files.

Note: Work one directory at a time - usually you are interested in personal stuff, documents etc - and "test copy" first - no files are copied but you see a log of expected results. If happy - go ahead and copy.

See: Free utility or inbuilt program to compare source & destination files

Sorry for all the suggestions but maybe something will actually work for you!

Wow, that program looks like dynamite... I wouldn't touch it without supervision. So, to report :
  • Nothing showed up in the right pane when I right-clicked on folders of folders -- but I presume this is normal, and not the sign that they were junction points.
  • Files showed indeed on the right pane when I right-clicked on folders of files.
  • I copied one bottom-level folder with a few files, and a middle-level folder with 36 nested folders and 371 files -- 1,42 GB total.
  • There are no missing files as far as I can make it, and all those I checked opened correctly.
Thanks for TRS Copy Changed Files and Win Merge, that's something I had been looking for, and your associated strategy might also be very helpful at some other point.

(I suppose Sync Back Free could also be used to that effect ? It can simulate restore before execution, and it can verify the copy with a MD5 hash.)

FreeFileSync (FFS) is the one I use for backing up my data files. There is a simple hack that will allow FFS to verify files it copies.

Can I have that simple hack? I use FreeFileSync a lot during every week.

If I recall correctly, you go into AppData, click on FreeFileSync, then click on GlobalSettings.xml. A little ways from the top is this entry:

<VerifyCopiedFiles Enabled="false"/>

Change the "false" to "true", then save and close the file.

You may have to do this two or three times to get it to "stick". Be aware that this hack will almost double the time it takes to run a backup because of the extra time it takes to verify each copy operation.

LadyF: Got it, thanks! "...RAID is NOT a backup!" -- makes for a good bug spray though
Back on some of the original topic[s]:
-- sources recommend not splitting Windows Prime [such as OS and/or Users and/or My Documents] into C-partition and D-partition operations. I left My Documents alone, and have been for years "tellling" each program to save its stuff onto D-partition.
-- I recommend TeraCopy be simply used during normal copy/move operations that would be handled by Explorer.exe.
I remember it playing not too well under some circumstances, however, been too long, can't remember what circumstances.

The only thing I moved from my C: drive to E: were my Documents, Music, and Pictures folders. That might have caused a problem if I wqs using Windows Backup but I don't and it hasn't been a problem for me when using Macrium Reflect and FFS.

Yes it's best used for certain problems only!

I've never used Sync Back so can't comment.

RE: PCHunter - if it copied a folder intact when Teracopy could not copy the same folder then the problem appears to lie with Teracopy. I'm not sure what the problem could be. A good test might be to remove Explorer Integration (Shell Integration) via Teracopy's menu then fully uninstall it using something like GeekUninstaller and allow Geek Uninstaller to scan for and remove leftovers. Reboot - Run Ccleaner then download a fresh copy of Teracopy and install it to see if you get the same problem.

Just for info and comparision:

I'm using Teracopy 2.2 x 64

I use a program/ file/ shortcut launcher and launch it from "C:\Program Files\TeraCopy\TeraCopy.exe"

Shell Integration is disabled. I just drag and drop folders/ files into the GUI.

I use an Admin account with UAC disabled (UAC has been replaced by something else)
