    After multiple calls to tech, Symantec refunded my money.
    I bought Acronis.

    Are you running the latest veriosn of 14. Have you run LiveUpdate in Ghost until there are no more updates?

    no new updates available.
    it only does it when on wireless network, I switched back to wired LAN and it works fine. Something not working in Ghost with the network stack

    You could try moving the Ghost slider more to the left to slow the backup and allow the wireless network to keep up.  It's probably too many wireless network protocol errors.  Approach it as a wireless problem by changing wireless channels etc.  However I don't recommend image backups (from any vendor) over a wireless network.  Too many potential issues for something you want and need to be a reliable emergency backup.
    Even network backups can be problamatic, so I have switched manyt pc's to inexpensive usb2 hard drives for image backup.
