    I recently backed up my computer, backed up my Bootcamp partition with Winclone, and then upgraded the harddrive. I have reinstalled all the data, and made another partition for Bootcamp through the Bootcamp Assistant, but when I have gone to restore the Winclone partition it fails. I first thought that the problem was that the size of the partition was too small, so I made it 5 gigs bigger than the Winclone partition (which is 50 gigs, so the new partition is 55 gigs). Still wouldn't work. I thought the problem was that I was restoring from a portable drive, so I moved the image over to my desktop and tried to restore there, and still it doesn't work. The error I routinely get is Error 5. Also, I can mount the partition through Winclone, so the image doesn't appear to be damaged.

    Here is my log from Winclone

    I'm on my iPhone so I can't help too much. The problem seems to be that your DMG is not being recognized as NTFS. Can you mount it manually In Terminal and debug from there?

    I am not too familiar with Terminal. I backed up the partition through Winclone without any problems (I don't recall if I had it formated at NTSF), so if it would back up the partition, shouldn't I be able to restore it? I can mount the dmg through Winclone, so I am confused as to how this is a stumbling block.

    in the log Disk03, is the drive that I want to restore the partition to. It looks to me that the dmg is NTSF. The boot camp partition where I want to restore the partition to is in FAT (because that's what Bootcamp partitioned it to be). Do I need to format the bootcamp partition to NTSF before restoring?
