Coping files from FreeBSD 6.2 to a WindowsXP ntfs partition
Well guys, I found it very strange. I'm mounting Windows XP not through etc/fstab, but using the command line :
#mount -t ntfs /dev/ads4s1 /mnt/win
I had some bugs in WindowsXP when I tried to install Norton AV. I saw it changed some permissions under windows. I wasn't capable anymore to make changes on the registry through msconfig. Also sometime after my computer just couldn't turn on after windowsxp loading screen. It seems that what happened affected the plug and play blablabalbalbla This isn't a WindowsXP Forum Support so let me go straight.
I mounted the partition and copied some files to my FreeBSD, making a backup of what I had of more important. So I simply made :
#cp -Rv "directories and files"
So that's okay by now. But after I installed my Windows XP and tried to copy it back to the ntfs partition, I failed with the msg :
#cp -Rv allback/ /mnt/win/Documents\ and\ Settings/
allback/ -> /mnt/win/Documents and Settings
cp: /mnt/win/Documents and Settings/backup: No such file or directory
So I was all : "WTF?!"
I red "man cp" and also I haven't found nothing there. So am I missing something ? Ohh and strangely, the folder "backup" which shows in the 3rd command line does exists in /home/fawz/allback.
Thx for the atention.
