Skipped Reparse Point Folder

Recommended Posts

Good morning.

I 'm trying to save a copy of my hard disk on cd. This hard disk contains the "my documents" "my pictures" etc directories (I'm using windows7).

When I calculate the size in imgburn, I get about a hundred modified file and folder names in the log. I don't like it very much, but what can I do ?

But one thing I don't understand is that I also have "Skipped Reparse Point Folder" entries. I don't understand what these mean.

Ok so you’ve got 80gb of stuff there.... I guess you didn’t actually mean cd when you said it because it’ll never fit!

A reparse point is a virtual link to somewhere else - as in, not a real folder. They’re possibly linked to another folder that’s already being included and you don’t want the data duplicated or the image will get even bigger.

Might you not be better off using a real hdd backup tool like Acronis True Image or similar?

Oh god, sorry I've must have been asleep, yes it's a 100GB blu-ray of course, not a cd.

Maybe, I would have to find out how these backup tools work. I'm not sure their developers answer every question on a dedicated forum though :)

I just want to make sure I save everything that is currently located on that hard disk.

I am a bit afraid about images. What if they end up corrupted ? Wouldn't the whole image be corrupted like a .rar file would ?

You could always create a set of par2 recovery files for the image - so you can recover it if that should happen.
