Cross-linked files???

Hey all, I was using the Paragon Partitioning Manager Express 9.0 to create a partition for 7RC (dual boot with Vista) and it was going smoothly until it said there was an error due to "cross-linked files" and it could not proceed until I fixed said there was some programs I should already have in Vista to fix this problem. I'd like to know which programs and how to fix this. Thanks for the help!!!

Vista / 7 RC 7100/Virtual XP

That video doesn't help me at all...Did all that and installed it just fine and had no problems EXCEPT the amount of space allocated to me for the 7 OS...if you look closely you can see that I was only given about 7 GB for it. IT"S NOT EVEN SUPPOSED TO INSTALL TO A PARTITION THAT SMALL!!! But it did and I ran out of space almost immediately; while my Vista partition has 225GB and only about 158GB or so has been used.That's the matter what I do I can only get 7GB for the partition.Even disabled the pagefile and hiberfile(hibernation) ...NO DICE!!! Take a good look at the screenshots and tell me what you think......
