    I am using ghost 8 to create an image on a lenovo 8705-31U. I am creating the image to a file on a external drive connected to the 2003 server with ghostcast server running.

    The ghost program appeared to be working until it got about 6% completed, and then it came up with a file name? (546) message saying "Output error file to the following location: a:/ghosterr.txt". The computer I am trying to create an image of does not even have a diskette drive "a" installed. If I try to change the location to a different drive letter, I get an error message saying "Cannot open Ghosterr.text - insert diskette (434).

    Does anyone have any advice to offer on a) what might be the reason my image will not complete, and/or b) how I can get the error log to save to a different drive (like c:\) so that I can read it to get some clues as to why my image won't complete?

    Hi Dan,

    You can change the default abort file (ghosterror.txt) location and name by specifying the switch -afile=filename where filename contains the path and name of the error file you wish to create.

    Example: ghost -afile=c:\errorfile.txt

    Please try this switch and post your error file if you are successful.

    Regards,
    Morgan

    Thank you, Morgan, for you fast reply. This information was very helpful to me. Actually I was able to figure out that the cause of the error was the 500 gb maxtor drive I was trying to create the image to. Once I redirected the image to create to one of my known working Lacie drives, problem solved.

    I am using Ghost 2003 with a:/ drive boot disks, to create an image of C Drive to another internal Hard Drive. I�ve done this at least 50 times before.

    The ghost program appeared to be working until it got about 95% completed, and then it came up with a file name? (546) message saying "Output error file to the following location: a:/ghosterr.txt".
    If I try to do anything, I get an error message saying "Cannot open Ghosterr.text - insert diskette (434).
    Neither of the boot disks helps the problem.

    I rebooted and the computer is going through some process of deleting and recovering orphaned files. This has happened before, and a total re-install had to be finally performed. I sure hope one of you guys has a suggestion.

    What is the reason my image will not complete?

    Thanks for your time,
    Gary

    Unfortunately we can't tell what the problem is unless we see the contents of the ghosterr.txt file, since that has all the fiddly internal details of what went wrong.

    What Ghost needs is a formatted, writeable diskette with at least 16-32k of free space to save this error log to - Ghost boot diskettes have over the years got full enough that there sometimes isn't enough space to write the error file out to. If you can get the error log and post it for us, then we can take a look at what the underlying problem is.

    Hey Morgan,
     
    I'm not sure if you got another message I tried sending you.
     
    I have both Norton Ghost 9 and Ghost 2003.  For a long time I've been doing backups by booting from Ghost 2003 in a CD-ROM tray. 
     
    Then, at an 'A' prompt, I type c:\support\ghost     (and I proceed).
     
    In recent days, after it has been going 1% towards a disk to disk clone, it always hangs and gives the ghosterr.txt prompt (along with the predictable error messages). 
     
    I have tried redirecting at this level using serveral versions typed into that box:

    ghost.exe -afile=c:\currerr.txt
    ghost -afile=c:\currerr.txt

    and just

    -afile=c:\currerr.txt

    Nothing works.  It gives the 434 error and then the 546 error and then it aborts. 

    Can you please offer any other ideas?

    Hi FairBalanced,
     
    For some reason I did not recieve the second pm you sent me??
     
    If I understand correctly you are trying the right thing but at the wrong time. To specify an alternate place for the error file you will need to add that switch before the ghost gui is loaded. In your case:
    >>Then, at an 'A' prompt, I type c:\support\ghost  
    When you do the above add -afile=[drive]:\error.txt where [drive] is the letter of the drive to store the error file.
    ie. at the 'A' prompt type c:\support\ghost -afile=a:\ghosterr.txt
     
    Hope this helps,
    Morgan

    Hey Morgan,
     
    I tried giving the command as you described.  It didn't make a difference to the outcome.  It still couldn't open the ghosterr file when it encountered a fault, and it still ran into the common subsequent error relating to an "internal inconsistency".
     
    I have some questions:
     
    I've figured out that when booting from the Ghost 2003 CD, the two internal hard drives are not assigned letters yet, and so teh CD takes the C drive position.  That's why when I was trying to save the file to c:\ ghosterr.txt, that can't work. 
     
    I orginally tried moving it to C when I saw it couldn't open the file on A drive.  (I assumed that A drive was the CD drive's assignment.)
     
    So now I might have some insight into my problem.  For some reason, the drive called A in windows (which is a 3.5" floppy drive) is not working in windows or at any command line prompt. In windows, it says to put a floppy in, even when one is in.
     
    Could you please answer each of these questions:
    1. Does ghost, when running as the C drive, preserve the 3.5" floppy as the A drive? 
    2. If so, how are there files deposited there (that I can see through the dir command)?
    3. If not, on what volume are these files on A deposited?
    4. And either way, it seems like you can't help me until you know what error is encountered. And I can't tell you what error is encountered until I can have the errorfile deposited somewhere readable. What am I supposed to do to accomplish that?
    5. Is there any way at all to bypass the initial error, and ghost MOST of the C drive to the D drive and to receive a message at the end of which files could not be backed up?
    6. If not, why not?
    7. What are my other options (to backup as much data as possible) using Ghost 2003 or version 9 on the windows level?
    Please repsond ASAP.
     
    Best regards,
     
    FairBalanced

    Hi FairBalanced,
     
    Ok, it seems your drives are probably formatted with NTFS and therefore aren't mounted in DOS (no drive letters assigned) so we cannot use them as a destination for the error file.
    If you have created a CD boot disk from your Ghost Boot Floppy then after booting you will get the boot track of the cd mounted as the A: drive and the data track of the cd mounted with some other letter assigned in your case C: so neither of these locations are writable. If you still have a floppy drive then that will be assigned B: and you should be able to insert a floppy into that and direct the error file there. However, you have indicated that your floppy may not be working so B: drive may not be accessable?
    Another option may be to create a drive mapping boot disk with Norton Ghost Boot Wizard, then you can map a network drive and use that as a writable loaction.
     
    Hope this helps,
    Morgan
     
    Just curious, you said that disk to disk clone used to work fine and now it doesn't? is there anything in you environment you have changed since the last time Ghost succeded in doing the clone?

    Thank you.
     
    I've always created an identical internal hard drive using the Ghost 2003 CD, and so I've never had to install Ghost on the Windows Level.
     
    I have been reading the manual, and I think three more questions can help a lot.
     
    1. I think I'm understanding that, since I have a notebook computer that has an RJ 45 network cable input, and since the desktop with no functioning 3.5" floppy drive also has a network card and input, I can burn a CD using the boot wizard that will allow me to specify my notebook computer as a destination for the error file.  Is that correct?
     
    2. I have the option to install Ghost 2003 on teh windows level and create an image of my C drive on my D drive. If I need to, I can access that image later using a properly configured CD (also created by the boot wizard) that can control the process from the DOS level.  Is that also correct?
     
    3. If the 2nd option is selected, then the error I'm getting at the DOS level will likely repeat itself while creating the image.  Will it be easier to uncover the error from the windows level?  In other words, is this likely an easier process than approach 1?
     
    Thanks again.

    Hi FairBalanced,
     
    The easiest way to do what you want to do with Ghost 2003 is to install it on the machine you want to backup as that is how Ghost 2003 is intended to be used. Once you have it installed you simply follow onscreen gui prompts which take you through the steps. If you are used to doing backup by cloning to another disk then you can do just that via the software gui running in Windows (I believe the you need to choose 'advanced' instead of 'backup' for disk cloning), the machine with then reboot itself and do the task you specified while also taking a log of the task and storing error files.
     
    The more common option used in this Ghost version is to do a 'backup' which esentially does the same thing above but creates a Ghost Image File containing all the info of the disk or partition specified. This image can be opened with Norton Ghost Explorer in Windows and files can be extracted from that if needs be.
     
    To answer your question about networking your two computers in DOS, well it would be possible but you need to do a few more steps to get it going, such as DOS drivers for your network card etc. Besides that you would have to had install the software to have access to Norton Ghost Boot Wizard to build the network boot disk anyway, so you might aswell just use the 'backup' features of Ghost 2003 instead.
     
    Hope this helps,
    Morgan

    Thanks.  (I wish the IT person who set me up with Ghost had told us we could do the same clone from the windows level; it would have saved a lot of time over a couple of years.)
     
    what's strange about the error is it seems to happen about the same time in each clone, but not around the transfer of the same file.
     
    I now have an error log I can offer; your system does not allow me to send more than a certain number of characters, so I'll send it in steps.
    (Please let me know what I can do to complete a clone or an image, FairBalanced.)

    Hi Again,
     
    Ok, now we are getting somewhere. Your error file suggests a hard disk fault (bad sectors) or maybe a hardware controller fault. Due to the age of your sofware, 2002 I think, there may also be hardware incompatablities if it is a newish system. Have you been able to do this operation with Ghost2003 before on this machine?
     
    Well there is an option which you can use to continue the clone anyway which may be successfull in this situation, HOWEVER the method I suggest can not guarantee the integrity of the data on the cloned drive so use at your own risk.
     
    When you set up the task in the 'clone wizard' go to 'advanced settings' and add this diagnostic switch in the 'Ghost Command Line' tab: -fro
     
    -fro switch will force Ghost to keep cloning even if it comes accross bad clusters, this is why I say the data integrity CAN NOT be guaranteed.
     
    Anyway try this and see if it completes. Also please post a hardware description of your machine and the Windows OS you are running Ghost2003 from in the case that you require further help.
     
    You should also run a Windows disk check of your drive to see if there are any errors.
     
    Regards,
    Morgan

    Yes, indeed.  We got somewhere.
     
    Ghost struggled past certain errors, but in the end, it appears most of the files were brought over to the backup drive in a useable format.
     
    Time will tell how, if at all, the data integrity of the corrupted files will be restored.  But just backing up those that aren't corrupted (before we do some new things to the C: drive) is a great help.
     
    Thanks for all your help Morgan.
     
    FairBalanced.

    Glad to hear you got somewhere.
     
    You really should check that drive for bad sectors if you intend to continue using it. Do a surface scan or the like with either Windows or third party disk diagnostic tools. It may be time for a new disk. Also make sure your critical data is not corrupted save it to a safe location and disregard the rest of the disk contents as you never know when you will run into problems down the track if you continue using that disk cloned with the -fro swtich.
     
    Cheers,
    Morgan

    Hi all, I'm suffering from the same problem.  Am getting the following error:

    File Name ? (546) Output error file to the following location: A:\ GHOSTERR.TXT

    Then after closing the error window, the system DOS says the following on screen:

    Abort:29005, write sector failure, result=1, drive=0, sectors 0 to 0


    Is this telling me that my HD is corrupt?  The backup literally gets to 100% so it's really bad luck if it is!

    I'm not sure how to go about getting ahold of this error message as I need to reinstall windows after this failed attempt.  Would placing a floppy in the disk drive help?

    Feedback appreciated!

    Hi Morgan,

    I saw the solution you proposed to Dan, but I don't know how to use it. I have the same problem, but with a Laptop Dell Latitude 420. Is your solution to be used in the Command prompt or another way?

    Can you help me, please
