I have a client how is running Norton Ghost 2003. Every time they go to run a back up it says this "One of the source files for the virtual partition could not be found in the virtual partition DLL c:\windows\TEMP\MBR.bin"

Any advice would be helpful

I think Norton ghost 2003 is too old to understand virtual partitions as they where not around at the time I am not an expert in ghost but as its 2003 what os are you using and I suspect I may be right

Windows XP.

They are backing up their ghost files to an E drive (enternal USB) I am not sure why it is looking at that location. I tried contacting symnatec but they do not support 2003 (lol)

Well the C drive is obviously not a virtual partition. And MBR would be referring to a Master Boot Record if I'm correct. Not many hits on this issue, so I am left guessing at this point :(

Well from what I understand they take an image of there hard drive and back it up to the E drive. Ghost error's out before it even starts to run and it looking in the location on the C: drive above. I am just starting to do a system restore and see what happens. Keep you posted
