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.
Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Contact Symantec, since it works before, but not after.

Are you sure that no other steps are involved ?


I hope this helps !

The only thing I noticed is that the version of Ghost on the boot disk is 8.5, while the version of ghost distributing the image is 11.x

weird.

Both of my version show up  the same. Ghost Suite 11.0.2 I think

Are you sure you are using the correct DOS version of ghost ?

Well, before I contact Symantec, I'm going to run a few more tests with uncompressed images and un-spanned images.
I setup a test environment where everything is the same version to eliminate that possibility
