How do you turn off spanning in Ghost?
Aug 2nd, 2001 at 10:10pm
 
OK, I got my 20 gig HDD and split it in half into 2 partitions. I just got Ghost and was creating an image file of the first partition to put into the second one as a backup. About 2 gigs into the transfer I get a message saying to insert another media. I had plenty of room as the first partition only had about 3 1/2 gigs on it. I just clicked OK and it continued with the copying. Right at the end it asked to insert the first media again. I clicked ok again and it finished. Now my second partition has two files instead of one.

I then read in that Ghost manual that it is defaulted to split files at 2 gig. How do I get it to do it in one continuous copy without the splitting/spanning? I didn't see anything in the Ghost options to do this.

it's a limitation of DOS, which can't make files larger than 2 gigs.
