Exclamation OT: Notron Ghost 6.0 bug...??

Anyone here use Norton Ghost 6.0?

here's the problem:

When i want to make an image file of a harddisk partition, I can select any drive/partition I have in my system. BUT when i have to select a destination for the image file, I can ONLY choose from the A: and B: drives, meaning my floppy and zip drive...

So... Ghost DOES recognize all my drives/partitions, but somehow won't acknowledge them as a valid destination for my image file....

Any feedback welcome!

When you create the boot disks for Ghost you do so after having installed Ghost onto your machine. It then takes a snapshot of your system and its hardware and creates a boot disk that has the <ghost and <ghostpe directory and file respectively. If you try to use a boot disk from someone elses machine it will not work properly. Is that what has happened here?

No, that's not what happened here..

I just found out... The problem is that I was trying to write the ghost file to an NTFS-formatted partition. You can use Ghost to make an image from an FAT32 or NTFS formatted disk/partition, but you can not write the image to an NTFS partition, only to an FAT formatted disk.
This, however is NOT in the manual... Got the answer from another ghost-user in another forum.

Apparently Ghost Enterprise is the only version that supports writing to NTFS partitions. So.. I bought the wrong version...I have only NTFS formatted disks now...
I'm gonna try to get a refund and buy the enterprise edition now.. In the meantime, I used Partition magic to create a 3GB FAT#@ partition to write my ghost files to, works perfectly.
