    I am trying to use Ghost2002 to make an image backup of my two partitons (12 gig C and 4 gig D) from my first 26 meg drive to my other 30 meg drive. If I say to make an image of C with AUTO and SPAN options, it says that my destination drive is full after 2 gigs even though I have still 12 gig free on the destination drive. I tried to use a batch file with the following line which someone suggested and it it still says the drive is full:

    GHOSTPE.EXE -CLONE,MODE=PDUMP,SRC=1:1,DST=D:\backupc000.GHO -FX -SPLIT=640 -SPAN -AUTO -Z6

    Also with this line, it backs up my D partition instead of C. What could I be doing wrong? They have been selling Ghost with larger than 2 gig drives for years, so it must work. I have tried at least 10 times to do this.:(

    The maximum file size allowable on a FAT32 partition is 2GB, and that's why the program is stopping. Just allow it to create more files.

    Problem solved!
    All I had to do was format the Ghost disk with the MS vs PC DOS version. I don't know why, but it worked.
