Norton Ghost Files - Access is denied

Posted on 2006-05-23

I have a HP laptop with 2 80GB drives. On my second HD, I have ghosted my HD with Norton Ghost. I want to now burn these files to a DVD.

However, Nero is giving me a warning saying "Access is Denied, the files are in use by another program"

I can't even copy and paste the files to my iPOD, Windows gives me a similar error, "Access is Denied, make sure disc in not full or in use by another program"

I tried shutting down every process I can think of, but nothing works. Is there a way in windows to see what process or service is using the files. Does anyone know what program is using the .GHS files so I can shut it down?

Thanks in advance...

    Your welcome.  Just for future info, what program or file was locking it out?
