Tonight, I attempted to use Ghost 5.1c to clone data from a 30GB HDD to a 100GB HDD. Since the source HDD only had the c partition, I merely selected Disk to Disk as opposed to Partition to Partition. Then, a window came up indicating the two harddrives and gave me an option to select the Source HDD. When I selected it, the following error messages occurred. NTFS Error: Error reading FILE_VOLUME MFT record and NTFS Error reading FILE_LOG MFT record. Errors detected in NTFS volume--treat as raw partition? Since I was unclear on this question, I selected No.
Personally, I do not feel like there is anything wrong with the source HDD because everything on my pc is running fine. I am unclear on why there is an NTFS Error when trying to ghost the data. Do I need to use a different version of Ghost? Or, will 5.1c work will be compatiable with NTFS? I always thought the program would simply carry out a data clone regardless of the file system structure of the HDD.
In closing, as everyone can probably tell, I have a lot of confusion regarding this pc concern. As such, I will be looking forward to reading everyone's thoughts on this issue.
Thanks in advance for any attention rendered to this post.
