    Yea we use it here as well, but not personally.

    If one of the pc's goes pear shaped it is easier to re-image than re-install.

    Are you sat comfortably


    I run a 30Gb HD with 3 partitions

    a) NTFS running W2K Pro SP3

    b) NTFS

    c) FAT32

    each about 10 GB

    When I now attempt to Ghost a) currenlty about 7Gb onto C) using High Comression I get the error "out of disk space" after 2GB

    I have the spanning box ticked so am expecting it to ask where would you like the 1st extend but nope just keeps giving the error.

    eerrrrmm

    Have you tried making another bootdisk. or using a boot disk that runs MS DOS instead of PC DOS.

    Do you have another drive attached? try removing it.

    A Scratch drive in a UNIX term for a HD that you can use to write files to that are not important. Think of it like your temp folder but can be mounted on a diffrent filesystem.

    :?: I don't understand that McSmoothie, I've used ghost in the past where image files have hit the 2Gb limit but ghost then carried on and created another file with a different filename and extension as many times as it needed to complete the image in files of 2GB. Never complained that the disk was full. Perhaps it's the version you're using?

    I am using the 2002 ver and was expecting it to ask for an extend (spanning is set to on)!

    That's odd, have you found a workaround yet?
