I would like to know whether answers like the following one, should get deleted.
On the one hand, it does provide relevant information on the problem, but on the other hand, it doesn't solve the issue.
Do they fall in to the "not an answer" flag criteria? What's the best reaction in situations like this?
Edit: Since terdon converted that answer to a comment, here is the post for future reference:
Not an answer per say, but worth reading for anyone reading this page or considering doing this: BOTH PartImage & FSArchiver (I've used them both & read about both extensively) are NOT certified for use for NTFS, in fact it's considered "Experimental" ; They do work fine for FAT 32, but otherwise should be considered "OFF-LIMITS" for any windows backups, System or otherwise. Linux & Win don't play well together---the best "common ground" is FAT 32 (I have a dual boot sys with just a partition I use frequently!)
