Multiple MFT record support

Mar 6, 2010 at 3:58 AM

// Still too large?  Error.
                if (_baseRecord.Size > _mft.RecordSize)
                {
                    throw new NotSupportedException("Spanning over multiple FileRecord entries - TBD");
                }

Unfortunately a base W7 install includes some files which hit this case if you try to duplicate them (including one hardlink with 13 links to it).  I was wondering where this was on your priority list (deciding if there is some workaround I can do, or will just have to wait)

Thanks

Hi Bill,

I've just updated the 0.8 Preview Release, can you try with that.  It has my first pass at supporting this - it should cope with large numbers of hardlinks.  It won't cope with fragmented files yet, though.

Cheers,

Ken

You have been busy!  I'll grab the update today and give it a whirl (I found another sxs file on the same system with 25 hardlinks!)
