    Hello

    I am trying to restore my windows partition after my hard drive failed. I made a winclone backup to an external drive shortly before the drive died completely. I am now trying to restore from this back up but I've run into some problems. Please could someone help decode the following errors:

    "/Library/NTFSProgs/ntfsclone" --rescue -f -f -f -O "/dev/disk0s3" /dev/disk2 1>&2
    ntfsclone v2.0.0 (libntfs 10:0:0)
    ERROR(16): Opening '/dev/disk2' as NTFS failed: Resource busy
    return value of "/Library/NTFSProgs/ntfsclone" --rescue -f -f -f -O "/dev/disk0s3" /dev/disk2 1>&2 is 256

    "/Library/NTFSProgs/ntfsclone" --rescue -f -f -f -O "/dev/disk0s3" /dev/disk2 1>&2 did not complete successfully
    cleaning up: Mounting Disk
    Volume BOOTCAMP on /dev/disk0s3 mounted

    Regards,

    Andy


    EDIT:
