A curious thing - transferring a profile off an amazingly old and ugly computer with multiple hard drives. Machine was running W10/1903.

Pictures folder was redirected to the g: drive. I assumed that Fabs AB would just pull that down, but instead it just copied the unused C:\ drive Pictures folder and missed the 75GB of photos. In Windows explorer I see two entries for Pictures - one the default directory and then the redirected one. THis looks odd to me and I am wondering if you might have any idea whats going on?

Best Regards

Hi there!

First, may I say how happy I am to be a FABS customer - its an important part of my toolkit!

Here is the situation that I invite you to comment on - this is not so much an issue with the product but if you can help me understand what happened I would appreciate it.

Customers desktop was killed during a power outage. Hard disk was recovered so I attempted to transfer the user profile to a new machine. Note: Transfer, not backup/restore

When the transfer completed I checked a few customer files (130 GB in total, but opening 10-15 randomly ) and while the directory entries were there , all files ( word documents, spreadsheets, pictures etc) had no content.

I then checked the hard disk and it does have some errors (unreallocated sectors). I see the user profile is completely locked down with no read permission. I forced a changed of ownership to "Everyone" and then checked the source files  and could open them properly

I re-executed  the transfer and this completed successfully.

So I wonder what the explanation for this might be?

Best Regards

Sorry for the late reply.

It seems that the user profiles were screwed up and when  backing up both users I discover that each user  was referring to the same files which was really quite confusing - not surprising in such an old machine. So the profiles were corrupted

A minor issue I think

Just downloaded the latest update and I have noticed that the status screen has a couple of oddities.

eg: Total Files to Copy is 26151, File Remaining is 30728. I would have thought Files remaining should be smaller?

Likewise with file sizse - in this case its Total File Size 32.88 GB, Remaining Size 35.5GB

This is on a Windows XP (!!) machine if that helps
