Im getting puzzled over how to make an image of my HD using Norton Ghost 2003\4. The GUI is completly confusing and all I want to simply do is create a backup image for any future computer disasters and then be able to implement it at a later stage if need be. Perhaps Ive missed something real obvious, Ive looked around a bit but still none the wiser.

Thank you to anyone can help.

Hi Luxo, I've just been there not long ago and got lot's of help from fellow inmates. I can't seem to locate the previous topic but I well remember that, for me anyway, the devil was in the option settings. I had some bad blocks on my H/D but you can change the option settings to get around all sorts of things like that. If you can give us a bit more of a clue as to where you're hitting the wall, might be able to help

It sounds like you want to do a partition to image or disk to image.

So here is a brain dump on what I remember from doing mine.
Once you have Ghost boot disk created, my version has a wizard on the start menu to get you started on this. It basicaly creates a bootable floppy disk with a copy of ghost.exe(I think tht the right file name) on it.

Boot from the disk, might need to run ghost.exe, and then expande the Create Image->from Disk(or partition)-> To Image.

You cannot write the image to the same disk/partition that you are making the image of. So if you have only one partition I think that you can make a copy directly to a CD-R/RW, don't know how to myself.

Any help?
