Post ntfsclone reports "No such device" error
Hi.
I tried the two revisions available at http://jp-andre.pagesperso-orange.fr/ad ... l#download
These are 2016.2.22AR.1 and 2015.3.14AR.3

OS1: Windows 7 Professional SP1 x86 Hungarian
OS2: Windows 10 Enterprise PE x86 English

I have a problem with both OS's. The HDD to be processed has 3 partitions.

ntfsclone only accepts "/dev/sda1
But reports "No such device" error for "/dev/sda2" and "/dev/sda2"

I use "ntfsclone --save-image --output backup.img /dev/hda3"

Strangely It seems to work with the nonexistent "/dev/sdb1" "/dev/sdc1" "/dev/sdc1" "/dev/sde1" ...

Hi,

When using ntfsprogs for Windows, you have to use Windows-type partition names (for exemple C:) and file names (with \ as a separator)

The utilities have to be run as Administrator, also, some utilities require the partition to be unmounted, so they cannot act on the Windows system partition.

Regards,

Jean - Pierre

Greetings Jean-Pierre,

thank you for the fast reply on weekend.
I am ashamed of not thinking about the evident solution...

However a compilation of "ntfsclone" from 2004 worked for me with the linux-syle
device names even in Windows environment. I also tried the native Windows device
names ( \\?\Device\Harddisk0\Partition0 ) without any success.

Thanks again,
Krisztian

Hi,
I realize, that "ntfsclone" does something "invisible" before displaying any progress
(before it starts scanning the volume). This "non-verbose" operation takes approximately
2 minutes, regardless of the partition size.

Is that normal?
I use "ntfsclone --save-image --output backup.img e:"

Thanks
Krisztian
