Cant backup Fat32 IDE to NTFS Sata

Go there if you encounter an unexpected error when using the softare. For installation problems, use another forum.

Cant backup Fat32 IDE to NTFS Sata

Post by Sebastian » Tue Jul 25, 2006 7:46 pm

Hello,

i used Norton Ghost until now but I want another free imager. So I found Partimage along with some other software. Partimage seems to be the most userfriendly soft of them all. (By the way i dont know much of linux.)

So I created the System Rescue CD Partimage is on it and I wanted to test.

I have 3 HDs. 1 with 2 Partitions with 2 OS. One of 40 GB with only 700 MB of Data for testing Partimage on it. Its IDE Fat32. And a Sata NTFS with 12GB Space free.

So I wanted to backup the 40GB Testdrive to the Sata-HD. To the path /mnt/sda1/image.gz
When I klicked ok after made a description then there occurs the error:

"Cannot create temp file. Please, check there is space enough and you have access rights."

So I searched and found the sata has to be mounted first.

I used this:

mkdir /mnt/sda1
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1

and checked with df -h if there are writing rights. The var was ok.

But it didnt work and after giving in:

hdparm /dev/sda1
hdparm /-r0 /dev/sda1

there comes only the same errormessage:

"Cannot create temp file in... Write access is denied."

So whats happening?

By the way. When I start windows again after having mounted the sata then it wants to run checkdisk. Does it harm the disk to mount it or why does Windows think this is to be done?

Im new to linux and so I dont know whats wrong. Its not that the 40GB HD wouldnt fit into 12 GB when it would be written full?

Hope someone can tell me what to do...

Greetings!
Sebastian

Hello? Does no one knows? This is the official forum isnt it? Or is there another. Where should I ask otherwise?

Are you using a kernel that supports read AND WRITE to an NTFS partition?

No, I dont. And I found that Linux cant write to NTFS in another forum. Or is there a way?

There's a new NTFS driver for Linux, with full write support (ntfs-3g). You should check if the latest Sysrecue does not support it.
