It was to E. F is only my page file. 

I use Diskeeper Pro, latest version, I defrag both drives before every backup and did so today as well.

Drives are IDE, Seagate 80 G Baracudas, both the same. Board is an Abit VT7,  few years old, latest bios.

That all sounds almost perfect to me.  I admit that I'm stumped.

The only other thing that comes to mind is that I think there is a LiveUpdate to Ghost 10, so run the update check after installing, if you ever try to install Ghost 10 again.  I'm assuming you have all the .NET updates.

You've created a folder in your E: drive, such as e:\Ghost for the backup images, correct?

wreckwriter,

Is this what you have done?

Uninstall Ghost 9,
install Ghost 10,
problems,
uninstall Ghost 10,
install Ghost 10,
problems,
restored a Ghost 9 image,
everything OK.

I'd try installing Ghost 10 again because your last install wasn't onto a "Ghost 10 free" drive. If it doesn't work then you have a good Ghost 9 image to restore. Ask for a refund. I don't think you have lost anything if it doesn't work. I prefer Ghost 9.

After I uninstalled 10 I ran JV16 to clean the registry so it SHOULD have been Ghost free, at least for the most part but yea, your timeline is accurate.

I plan to try again today, gotta cut the grass first but then I plan to do some more research and retry. I would really like to have the new functionality.

thanks for all the replies, if you think of anything else, please post it up. Any and all ideas welcome Smiley

Since you only have your paging file on f: partition, I would change that.
1. Change XP to put pagefile on c: or e:
2. Reboot
3. Verify there is nothing else on f:
4. Use Disk Management to delete f: partition
5. Create Extended partition
6. Create Logical partition
7. Change xp to not use c: or e: and use f: (or whatever the new drive letter is).
8. Reboot

One thing I was wondering: in the readme is list a known issue as "not intergrated with Microsoft volume shadow copy service" (or similar). Could this relate?

As for .net, I believe I have 2.0, not 1.1. Not sure how to check though.

The downside of that is if I start messing with the partitions on drive 2 I risk losing my one good backup.....

I believe that is just a warning or note that if you have other software that uses the Volume Shadow Copy Service or requires that the service be started there is a conflict.  (I think it was Pleonasm that pointed out that Ghost does NOT use VSC service.)

I've never seen a discussion as to what Ghost uses to keep trace of system/sector activity during the "hot" backup.

You're not overclocking or anything like that are you?  A complete hardware lockup doing heavy internal disk-to-disk i/o just made me think of that.  I assume one is master, the other is slave, or both cable select.  Can't think of anything else.

OK, didn't realize that.  I thought you said only paging file. Better to be cautious!

In that case, put your new Ghost 10 backup in a separate folder on f:

Minor overclock on video card but I tried setting it back to stock.

E is where my backup lives, F is page file. Those 2 drives are on second disk. First disk is XP.

Sorry, meant to say put Ghost 10 backup on separate folder on e:.

Everything else looks fine.  Run a chkdsk e: /f and chkdsk c: /f before the backup.

Good luck.

Ghost 10 backup was going in seperate folder, default for it.

I'm not going to risk messing with partitions, always a bit of risk there. If 10 can't deal with a perfectly legitimate partition scheme then I don't want it anyway. I just don't believe this is the issue as Ghost 9 didn't blink at it.

Sounds good to me.  I don't remember that there is a "default" folder for Ghost 10 backups.  I think you have to choose the drive letter.  I would create a new folder first with Windows Explorer on e: and then start Ghost 10 and tell Ghost 10 to backup to that one.
