"unsupported reparse point" rsync

I am trying to copy the files from my WHS disk to my Ubuntu Server disk. I have the windows disk mounted at /media/WINDOWS and I want to transfer to /storage so I ran;

sudo cp -r /media/WINDOWS /storage
It takes about 4-5 seconds and is complete, but there is about 500 GB worth of data there so I know it didn't really copy everything over. When I look at the files in console it shows them, but when I look at the /storage through SAMBA on my Windows machine, it only shows the directories. Am I doing something wrong with the 'cp' command?

I've also tried using 'rsync' and i get the error 'unsupported reparse point' for every file inside of the directories.

Everything mounted ok, I was able to see the files, just not access them. So I chmod the files and still no go. So I decided to take the WHS drive out and connect it to my main box (Win7). The drive mounts fine in Windows7, but everytime I try to access a file it says I don't have permissions. I think when I chmod it with my Ubuntu Server, it screwed up the permissions for accessing it in Windows. I might have lost all my data! Any ideas?
