SubjectHow do I make a ghost copy of my HD? new Reply to this message

Need instructions.

(to tell the truth, I only need the file to save on a floppy and boot my pc with it.)

Short story: my hd at work isnīt 100% ok and corrupts some stuff when I use it too much. I got another one, (awesome mmi hd with 80 GB) and need to ghost everthing so I donīt need to reinstall backup everthing, which would take too long.

Not quite. The floppy Ghost makes is a boot disk, with the Ghost program on it with various mouse and cdrom drivers.
You have to make a backup image of the drive, and put it on CD-Rs, or a DVD-+R/W. Then use the boot disk to restore the image file. It's huge, and won't fit on a floppy.
You can't save and image on to the same drive, and you can't restore to a drive that the image is on.

The later versions of Ghost have a tool to walk you through the whole thing, making a backup images, and a boot disk.

well if you have 2 hd's, then just use ghost to copy everything from the old drive to the new drive.
it's been a few years since i've used ghost (it was required at the tech job i had, we had to ghost every hd that we had to work on when it involved doing anything to windows. cover you own ass) but it should be fairly straight forward.

Iīve heard from a person which I know who works in a Lan house franchise around here, and he often had to ghost copy the HDīs of the computer, using a bootable floppy disk only. So I think Iīll get that program heīs tlaking abour to do the job..
