    I'm currently trying to get my harddrive from the source 40, to the destination 60. the source is going bad and i want to image it disk to disk to the 60 before it dies.
    When i go to hit disk to disk, it lets me select the 40, but when it asks for the destination drive, the 60 isnt a selectable option. Am i missing something? What am i doing wrong?!

    What format is your 60 gig drive? If the destination drive is formatted as NTFS, your version of Ghost will not be able to access it. Ghost 2003 supports NTFS partitions but earlier versions do not.

    You have got to be kidding me. The source drive is NTFS and it picks it up just fine. So it cannot do a disk to disk ghost if the destination is NTFS?

    That is correct. The quote below comes directly from Symantec web site. Sorry!

    You can use a free drive utility from the manufacturer of one of the hard drives to clone the drive - not create an image so it will overwrite everything on the source drive.


    Also Ghost 2002 can ghost/clone a NTFS drive, just not write an image to a NTFS drive. In this case you need to check that the drive is connected properly and recognised in the BIOS.

    See i thought that didnt make sense. this drive is just fine, and the computer see's it and i can put anything on it i want. I got to do a disk to disk, and it SEE's the 2nd drive , but wont let me select it as the destination drive.

    If you do plan on just cloning the entire drive, ie overwritting the new drive, then download and run the hard drive manufacturer's utilities.
