I am having trouble copying my NTFS windows partition with partimage to an NTFS disk... I mount the disk that I am writing to with this instruction: "mount -t captive-ntfs -o --rw /dev/sda5 /mnt/storage" then I try to make the image of my Windows Disk with partimage, but first of all it is slow as heck... I think that it only gets about 20MiB/s tops, but I believe that this is because I am using captive, and the second problem is that I get some funky errors after about 1.7gb...

Is there a way for me to speed up this backup process? Other than converting one of my drives to Fat32 or any other type of file system? Is there a way for me to just use "mount -t ntfs -o --rw /dev/sda5 /mnt/storage" and have partimage overwrite an existing file (one that I created beforehand for this purpose)? Does it work that way?

Did the program give me errors because I was writing to a disk that is a bit fragmented?

I'm sorry I really have no idea where else to put this... It's not exactly a Linux problem but it also isn't exactly a Windows problem either...

Thank you for your time.


I am using SysRescCD to try and do this process, not sure if you guys are familiar with this project or not, so here is it's homepage:

I can not offer much help since I've only used partimage with linux filesystems but AFAIK the NTFS filesystem is still not fully supported. Fragementation might be an issue. Are you saving the image to a linux or NTFS filesystem?
