I am doing a complete backup of a 3 TB disk which has just over 200 GB of used disk space.
The drive was new so I imagine that the free space is mainly on the latter 90 percent of the disk. Norton Ghost estimates the backup time to be 3 hours initially.
After about 2.5 hours, I get an error "The system cannot find the file specified " error EBAB03F1 (UM1:V-0-2001-30)
I have tried 3 times now and the error is repeatable.
I started to run Spinrite 6 but the estimated time to complete was 270 hours and I don't have that much time. Chkdsk will also take a very long time.
My question is this, does Norton Ghost read empty disk space as well as used disk space ?
If it doesn't then I am considering shrinking the 3TB partition down to 300 GB and then running spinrite on the smaller partition which should take 27 hours instead of 270 hours.
It would seem from the error message that Ghost is reading a file from the used disk space ?
I am backing up to a USB removable drive which works fine when backing up other PCs with Norton Ghost.
