Why do I get an error when restoring from a 'compiled' imgae?
Posted on 2008-10-07
I have installed the newest version of the Ghost Server Suite, and am using the feature of adding and deleting files to an image. According to Symantec's documentation, it is recommended to 'Compile' the image after these procedures since this can cause fragmentation. However, when I do this and try to restore that image on a computer, I get an error that the image is corrupt.
As a test, I took a functioning image, and compiled it without making any changes, and I still got the error. Conversely, when I take the same image, add a file and exit the program, I can restore that image without incident, and the file I added is, in fact, added.
