OOPpss ...
... to late I see, I forgot to set the old version of GParted under
Ubuntu 7.10, 
Sorry: It is 0.3.3-2 !

The latest indeed is 0.3.3-6 ...
... it not only allows Disk Labels ...
... it also runs better and faster too !!

I do not think it's this mixed upper/lower letter case, 
since I am able to rsync my data to the respective partitions finally
again !

rsync copied 4052 out of 4053 files of 5.7GB from /home to /mnt/WS222 !!
The control check indeed gave an impossible result displaying in
five digits file amount !? ;-O

Now I am copying WinXPP's Document and Settings to LD142ntfs/WS222 !!!

Like this it seems I have gotta something running without being
confident and 
experienced knowing how and what is being going !? ;-((

It seems that I do something wrong quite basically and haven't gotta to
know how and what !!!

I would like to find out how to check it well to make sure that after
backup ...
... the restore works 100% too ! ;-)

Any hints and suggestions are still hot awaited and appreciated
cheers, svobi

PS: Just catched a "copy i/o error" with the USB HDD unit !
Seems it got stressed too much today and became too hot ??
Need to check and restart tomorrow again. ;-(
