20090331 - Robocopy parameters

Wanted to copy from a mounted BESR (Backup Exec System Recovery) image. Found that the recovery feature built into BESR is slow and doesn't copy any security info. Copying from the Explorer is the same way. Using the robocopy command from the Windows Resource Kit and it's fast and copies the security with the right parameters.

robocopy E: D: *.* /E /ZB /COPYALL /NP /R:5 /W:15 /LOG:d:\migrate.log

/ZB will copy in restartable mode and if a file is set so that administrator cannot access, it copies in backup mode so it still can copy it. /NP keeps the progress from showing in the log file. /Copyall copies all the security info.

20090325 - BESR

Windows - No Disk
Exception Processing Message 0xc0000013 Parameters 0x756392A0 0x00000004 0x756392A0 0x756392A0

When booting using Backup Exec System Recovery boot cd-rom. After trying multiple things determined that it was due to using the virtual CD-ROM by mapping using the PowerEdge's DRAC card. If I had someone stick a physical CD of the BESR boot, it booted fine and I could restore.
