    Macrium: The system cannot move the file to a different disk drive


    I have downloaded Macrium Reflect to try it out before purchasing. It is v6.3.1665.
    I am seeing the errors:
    The system cannot move the file to a different disk drive: Y:\Visual Studio\Common7\IDE\CommonExtensions\Microsoft\TeamFoundation\Team Explorer\1045\*
    and on and on for all Team Explore subdirs.

    I can copy these files just fine using windows explorer.
    Aside from "cannot move" which I presume should actually say "cannot copy"

    Why can't it copy the files from this source location to my backup?

    This is a file copy backup (not disk image.)

    PS
    I'd post in the Macrium forum, but you have to have a registered product for that. As I said, I'm trying it out to see that it works, which I'm not so sure of at the moment.

    yes, Y: is an external USB drive.



    P.S.
    Whilst very interested in solving the Macrium problem(s), I am now using Acronis to keep the system backed up. I will say the forums have been good providing answers to known Macrium problems around VSS and SC such.
