Ghost 2003 has been working fine on my Windows XP machine for two years, I have been doing clone backups every month. All of a sudden I am getting this error: Invalid Drive Destination Error 11030.  It is a single OS machine, no dual-boot. I just ran virus scans, AVG, Ad-Aware Personal Edition, and Spybot. Any ideas how to investigate or solve this problem will be greatly appreciated.

Greetings, WizeOwl !

The problem occurs because the hard drive has been changed.  Did you install another hard drive?  Is the present hard drive installed correctly?  Check if the present hard drive is bad. Use the manufacturer utiltiy to check

Actually, I've worked around that issue previously, and it worked fine.

ISSUE RESOLVED
I tried another hard drive and it worked.  Something must be wrong with the other hard drive.  I'll look into that another time.  For now, I got the drive cloned.

WizeOwl,

Glad changing hard drive works.  Did you run the hard drive utility to find out what is wrong with the other hard drive?

No, I already took it out of the machine.  I'll run the utility later. But you are probably correct that there is something wrong with the drive.
