Image of Windows Vista system partition (NTFS) was made using Disk Utility. If to view the image content using Disk Image Mounter the folders of one important type are empty: Users\user\Roaming These are folders where all installed software store their data. For example the web browser stores here user specific data. The same for mail client. I wonder what is the cause this directory for all users is empty in the image created by Disk Utility. Has anybody any idea? UPDATE By making the experience as above I am not sure the OS X Disk Utility Create New Image is suitable to produce reliable image of NTFS partition. In the case as above not only the directory Users\user-name\Roaming is missing. Also Program Data directory which normally is present when looking at Win system part from running Windows is not present in the image created by OS X disk utility. Not the slightest idea which directories else an how many over all does the image miss.
