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

TeraCopy has trouble working with some Macrium Reflect mounted images

I use Macrium Reflect Professional v.5 to image my disks. When those images are mounted, they can be browsed under Windows Explorer, files can be opened and copied to another partition. They can also be copied with TeraCopy.

Now I have run into some images which, although they work as expected when mounted under Windows Explorer (Windows copy and paste works), fail when folder copy and paste is attempted either with TeraCopy or RichCopy. However, files can be copied with TeraCopy.

The following has been attempted to no avail :

- Re-verify the image with Macrium (it's OK).
- Run TeraCopy as administrator.
- Attempt copy under a Windows user account with admin rights.
- Shut down Avira antivirus real-time shields.
- Downgrade TeraCopy from the current 2.3 version to the 2.27 version (someone suggested that 2.3 had problems with Windows 7 x64).

The reluctant folders, once mounted, have a read-only mark (which is supposed to apply only to the contained files). However, the included files are not read-only. I tried to uncheck this, but it failed.

Any ideas ? Thanks !

Looks like a TeraCopy problem. I would complain to them.

Teracopy was great when I was using XP but I had nothing but problems with it when I switched to Win 7.

Well it's not much help but it works okay for me. Folder and subfolder/ files copied from Macrium Reflect mounted image using Teracopy - all copied okay! No need to change permissions.

Edit:

The only suggestion that I have is to see if anything is locking those folders. Use something like LockHunter and right click a problem folder to see if anything is locking it.

Thank you, ladies and gentlemen (plural rhetorical, obviously).

Callender,

I'll try Lockhunter, whose existence I was not aware of. Do you mean I should use it on mounted folders from a Macrium image ?

The read-only warning you showed on your folder is exactly the one I get. However, this seems to be an application folder, so maybe read-only is to be expected ? My folders also contain documents.

The same thing is happening to me with TeraCopy and RichCopy, which suggests maybe there's something else. TeraCopy does have a "ticket" space on its site, but I doubt it's available to non-paying users. Help is almost non-existent and I don't see a dedicated forum anywhere.

I read many variations of that gripe. The problem is that we should even need something like TeraCopy. After some research, I learnt that Windows lacked a properly working copy function... and also a properly working search function. That's only two of the most basic functions of any operating system... I have to supplement Windows "search" with Everything, and it works like a charm... blazing fast, too.

Yes, just to see if it reports that they are locked and in use and therefore not able to be copied.

Have you by any chance taken ownership of your %localappdata% folder (or c:\users\username\appdata\local) at some point in the past?

EDIT:

Also re: application folder.

Hopefully you are not looking at a shortcut - right?

I don't think so, although I did mess with permissions and taking ownership in some places in the past, and decided to refrain from it as much as possible, because a) it's horribly complex, b) apparently there's no way to revert to default settings. So it's a possibility.

Just in case it's relevant, my user profiles are on D: and my system is on C:.

A permissions issue was my first idea, since it appears I can copy the files that are in a folder, but not the folder itself.

No, what I tried to test-restore, before doing the real thing, was a nested folder of my own making, deep down into my Documents, with real documents in it : .pdf files, Word files, .mht files...

Which drives have you imaged using Macrium Reflect? If you imaged C: and your user profile is on D: maybe that's the problem. I used to move my documents off my windows partition but that's no longer the case.

Here's something to try.

Create a folder with the same name as the problem folder on your C: drive.

Mount your Macruim Reflect image and attempt to copy the problem folder via Xcopy from an Elevated Command Prompt. Does it work?

Example from my machine:

Copy a folder from D:\FF Backups to an empty folder here C:\Users\Chris\Desktop\FF Backups

Code:
xcopy "D:\FF Backups" "C:\Users\Chris\Desktop\FF Backups" /c /d /h /i /k /q /r /s /x /y
Where an empty folder named FF Backups exists in destination on C:

Quotes are needed if path contains spaces.

EDIT:

Sorry - forget that. You want to copy a folder. This method only works if you create an empty folder in the destination first.
