    I have a Ghost 11 partition image which I have restored before, but today there is a problem.

    The image file is 18 Gb or thereabouts but Ghost reports it as

    17,875,318,21 bytes (yes 21 at the end)

    When I try and restore it it I can select the source partition in the image, it finds the destination drive OK and then it shows the destination partition in the list but it is greyed out.

    Haven't a clue why this is happening, I have used this product for 7 years without a problem.

    Anyone else seen anything like this?

    Destination is too small would be my guess?

    None of my partitions have changed, and the partition size reported by the image is the same as others that do restore properly.

    It has happened on another machine, again with an image that used to work.
