Target Disk Full error on Norton Ghost 9

rpm asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-02
I have a workstation which uses Norton Ghost 9 to do a full image backup to a server.

On the old NT4 server, this worked fine.

Now they have a Windows SBS 2003 server, it does not work. It back's up about 1Gb of image and then terminates with a Target Disk Full error. There does not appear to be a quota set on the drive in question, and it has plenty of space. I have managed to copy over 1Gb of test files into the appropriate share without a problem, and with these files in place Ghost is still able to backup 1Gb and then fails in the same way!
