    I have TI 10 and am confused. I took an image of c: and mounted the image as g:\. I expected to see my g:\ looking just like my c:\, and for the most part it is, but where I see this on c:

    C:\Documents and Settings\David Bland\My Documents

    I don't see quite the same thing on g:

    G:\Documents and Settings\David Bland\David Bland's Documents

    Even more oddly, when I right click on a file under the above directory and display it's properties, it says it's in

    G:\Documents and Settings\David Bland\My Documents

    which is, of course, exactly what I was expecting to see in the first place.

    Interesting and odd, isn't it? Does anyone have an explanation?

    I'll let you know with v9 what happens when I mount an image later tonight.

    Ah such a perverse world :)

    Hello David07666,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    We are sorry for the delayed response.

    Please note that this is normal behavior of Windows operating system. You will see the same situation if you open C:\Documents and Settings\USER\ folder, where USER is account that is differ from the account you have logged in. In other words, "My documents" folder name is only for the current user.

    Thank you.
