Ghost Preserved Location Ends Up in Boot Partition After Imaging

Created: 23 Feb 2014 • Updated: 18 Aug 2014 | 1 comment
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I'm developing an automated process to migrate our users form XP to Win 7.

Our XP Image has a single partiion and I'm using PCTransplant to backup user data to C:\XP-Backups

My Gost image command switch -Preserve=C:\XP-Backups should keep that location intact while the image is deployed.

The Win 7 Image has two partitions and when Ghost deploys my image it's preserving XP-Backups in the Boot partition because during deplyment the boot partition is labeled Volume C:\ and the System partition where the OS is located and all other files is labled D: or E:.. it's only when the image finishes and the machine restarts that the system partition is labeled C:\ and thus my preserved files are lost.

Any ideas on how I can solve this?

I changed the presevedest=2 and this moved my preserved location from soure 1 to destination 2.
