    I need to make a Ghost image of a client PC, but I want to be able to create and store the image directly to a network share, but without having ghost installed on the server containing that share. Basically, I want to treat the network share the same as if it were an attached storage device such as a Lacie drive or CD burner where the whole process would be the same as if creating the image to one of those targets simply by selecting them from the drop down menu when asked to select the target.

    Is this possible? The instructions I've read seem to indicate that doing anything across the network, even simply creating the image, requires ghost installed on the server.

    I'm using Corporate version 8.

    I think you could map the network drive/folder you want to save the image to and use ghost from that machine to create the image.
    Mapping the drive will make it show up as if it was a local drive.

    Mapping a network drive:
    In wondows Explorer choose Tools-> Map Network Drive
    Choose a drive letter and then enter or browse for the path.
    click OK.
