Bootitbm creates inaccessible backup image

Postby wizzleme » Sun Dec 25, 2016 9:50 pm

Win7 one drive, reserve partition, c:W7boot d:data
d:data was 65gb used 303gb free

resized d: to 100gb, no problem

make image backup of d: took a LONG time for only 65gb of data. saved to file on c:w7boot. completed successfully according to bootitbm, used byte by byte validation

When I try to open image file using tbiview, I get
"cannot open file" error 6. (There is only 9gb left on c:win7boot.).

Why? All my previous image files of both d: and c: open fine. the only difference here is I saved it to c:w7boot.

tried to open explorer with admin privileges, makes to difference cannot access tbi bakup of d:

Thank you.

This laptop running win7 ultimate is locked down tighter than a scrooge's wallet.

Cannot access many folders on C: drive. I suppose this makes it less hackable, but it's a pain.

Simplest way is to run tbiview as administrator. Don't really understand why windows explorer does not pass admin privileges to tbiview, you have to execute tbiview as administrator, then image opens no problem.

Don't have time to become expert on windows 7 permission schemes, so running tbiview as admin is quickest solution.

One of the first things I do when installing Win 7 for my own use is
to use a script to change all the permissions to I do not have
problems like this and so I can install my programs into the, erm,
programs folder(s) so I don't have permissions issues.

Drives me crazy that when I have an admin account, I have problems
with things that need admin permissions. Linux is nowhere near as
intrusive as Windows in this regard.

Many problems with windows file and folder permissions can be avoided by using "SuRun". In fact it is a kind of sudo for Windows. However, SuRun works in a user context and in certain really rare occasions you would have to resort to genuine Admin authorization.

Thanks for the info on SuRun. I just downloaded the Zip and sent a link
to my daughter.
I have had problems with a few files so am glad to have it.

You are welcome Mary.
SuRun is one of my most important pieces of software and a great safety factor at that. My favourite features are contained in the context menus of Windows Explorer, System Menu and Desktop as illustrated in the Attachment.

In words:
- Run as Administrator (SuRunner)
- SuRun cmd here
- SuRun Explorer here
- Restart (of a program window) as Administrator (SuRunner)
- Control Panel as Administrator (SuRunner)

You will certainly have experienced by now the considerable relief brought about by those features but I am repeating them here so that others can share it.

As concerns the safety aspect I may be allowed to quote a passage from Wilders Security Forums:

Quote
*SuRun uses a secure desktop for sensitive user interaction:
SuRun uses a service to create a secure desktop in the window station
of the users logon session. On that desktop it will ask the user for
permission or the password. The desktop is not accessible by user
applications. Keyboard and mouse hooks will also not work on that
desktop.
*SuRun does not leave the user in the administrators group.
After creating the administrative process, SuRun removes the user from
the administrators group immediately. So spying even out the
password would not increase the chance that the system could be
infected by malware."
