I was wondering if anyone here is using BUMP from EMC9 in Vista? I've installed EMC9 on my new Dell E521 running Vista 32-bit (after uninstalling EMC9 DE), and immediately uninstalled D2D.
I was having some problems using the transfer wizard to get stuff off of my old PC, so I decided to restore it from a backup made using BUMP. I only restored My Documents to the Documents folder in Vista, and then moved everything around where I wanted it. All seemed well.
After getting things the way I wanted them in Vista I decided to do a backup. I selected my user directory for backup (C:\users\gary\) and the calculated size was about twice as big as what it should be. I looked around on my hard drive to see what could be taking up the space and everything was showing the size I expected. I went back into BUMP and it was still twice as big. I then noticed that not only does it show a directory called C:\users\gary, it also shows a directory called C:\documents and settings\gary. I have only selected c:\users\gary for backup, but the backup size is twice as big as it should be, presumably because of whatever is causing the c:\documents and settings\gary folder to show up.
I go back out to "Computer" in Vista, and can't see the 'documents and settings' directory anywhere. It only shows up in BUMP, and when I view it in BUMP the contents are identical to the 'users' directory that I can see in BUMP and in any file viewer in Vista. I've allowed hidden files to be seen in Vista, but still don't see this directory that shows up in BUMP. I thought maybe it was a leftover from reading in the catalogue when I did the restore, so I deleted the catalogue and restarted BUMP, but the problem persists.
The EMC web site says it's compatible with Vista, and specifically lists operations that sound like BUMP as being available here. If you scroll down to the "Productivity" section and click the "tell me more..." link it talks about features that seem could only be BUMP.
My next thought was to reinstall BUMP and see if that solved the problem, but I thought I'd see if anyone else has any experiences to share.
