Microsoft Windows Vista
An example of this problem:
an image of the 2nd partition: img -mp part2vista.zmg
2. Restore that image to the 2nd partition: img -rp part2vista.zmg -ap=a1:p2
The imaging engine begins to copy files and hangs where is says "Restoring: $Extend\$Reparse"
If "Reproduce step 1" is performed on an XP machine and then perform step 2 on a Vista machine there are no problems. The problem occurs only when taking and restoring on a Vista machine.
This works fine in XP, even the image taken from Vista that can't be restored to vista will restore fine to an XP machine.
