Wrong SYSVOL volume backed up

Backuping a laptop with a recovery partition seems to result with the recovery partition backed up instead of the SYSVOL partition :

Mounting partition :


Could you post the “C:\Program Files\UrBackup\sysvol_test.exe” output. That shows how it searches for the SYSVOL.

Could you run it as administrator? Thanks!

That’s what i’ve done :

Ok, it doesn’t even list this volume, does it?

A little bit of research shows this is a HP/Dell partition for bootable diagnostics and has nothing to do with Windows. Correct?

Yes, correct. This is a manufacturer recovery partition (DELL) containing the “stock” win 7 image.

Here is the DISKPART output :

DISKPART> select disk 0

Le disque 0 est maintenant le disque sélectionné.

DISKPART> list partition

N° partition Type Taille Décalage

Partition 1 OEM 39 M 31 K
Partition 2 Principale 12 G 40 M
Partition 3 Principale 226 G 12 G


Partition 1 = SYSVOL ???
Partition 2 = DELL RECOVERY
Partition 3 = OS (C:)

I’d say Partition 2 is SYSVOL and Partition 1 is ??? (bootable diagnostics but nothing to do with Windows). Partition 2 has the Boot and recovery directories my SYSVOL has. Plus SYSVOL is formatted NTFS and OEM is FAT32, isn’t it?

Oh yes sorry that’s it … Partition 1 is a Dell partition for bootable diagnostics. Partition 2 named RECOVERY contains some wim files (DELL stock images for recovering to initial state). And partition 3 is C:

And partition 2 also contains the “System Volume Information” directory, sorry for the mistake …
