win 8 copy/paste issue?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
i just setup a new computer build and fresh install of win8. i have two new 1tb hdds in raid 1 mirror(E:) and a single hdd that was from a broken mirror on my old machine that held all my backup data(D:).. i copy/pasted the contents of D: -> E: and this is what ive run into...



as you can see the sizes from the one drive D: to the mirrored drives E: are all messed up.. the top two properties windows are of the drives themselves, the bottom two are of the contents in the root of each drive. even drive D shows that it takes up 253GBs but then below when i looked at the properties of all the files in root it shows its like half that.. anyone know whats going on here, or if there is anyway to compare the two drives are the same data?

When you broke the D drive out of the mirror, did you wipe the raid metadata on it as well? I've seen really strange issues when the raid metadata doesn't get wiped that causes the drive size and data size to not be reported correctly. If it was set up on an Intel raid, you should be able to go into the Intel raid storage manager when the PC is booting and set the disk to be non-raid.

actually i was just messing around with it and i think i figured out why it was reporting wrong, but copied the correct data over.. when the D: drive was on a previous computer i had shared a few dirs from it that were a few gigs each.. when i brought it over to this new computer build something with the access level was stuck or got messed up and those previously shared dirs are asking me to give admin priv to open them. every time i give admin priv to open one it increases the totals closer to normal.. and now they are the same.. kinda odd but the properties wasnt including those dirs for some reason..

NTFS filesystem permissions are a ***** sometimes. You need to manually take ownership of those directories when migrating between systems or Windows installs. It likely can't query the metadata without doing so first. Glad you got it worked out!

I ended up finding those specific dirs and manually taking ownership, but I was wondering the best way to take ownership from the drives root and include all files/dirs and sub dirs?

    To do that, just right-click the drive, click "Properties" and head over to the Security page and take ownership from there.  I usually set the Owner to "Administrators" on partitions.  To propagate the owner setting to all the folders on the drive, simply tick "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects" before clicking [OK] to set the owner.

    Please note that taking ownership and granting yourself access are two different procedures.  You will probably need to do both.
