I'm trying to extract the "Documents and Settings" folder and all subdirs from an image file using TBIView 4.26.0. The image was made with IFD 2.66. At some point it hits a file with a bad name (not sure where it came from, but it's an IE favorite with a lot of "?" in the name) and errors out; I'm unable to extract anything past that point unless I were to extract every folder manually. I tried to mount it as a drive letter, but the user folder (ie. "Documents and Settings\user") is completely inaccessible -- I'm guessing because it has a password login?
Is there a way around this bad file?

"Documents and Settings" is a junction that points to C:\Users. Look in the \Users\username\... folders for the files. For example, if you mounted the partition to M:, look in M:\Users\username.

Thanks for the reply. I forgot to mention this is WinXP, there is no c:\users.
I discovered the source of the bad filename: it was a link that was named in another character set. I was able to rename it under safe mode (I couldn't boot normally, which was why I was trying to get these files from the image), then take another image. The result works fine, just was a bit slow since an image takes 1 hour (including validation, of course).
I was thinking, though, that TBIView shouldn't fail when trying to extract a bad filename (or on a file it cannot extract); could it not just log the error and continue?

yes, have todo note to make it continue when possible.

Cool, thanks. Excellent products, by the way. I've been happily using IFD/IFW since 2006.
