  1. What are your system specifications and how are you attempting to back up your c: drive?

    I Run XP Pro SP3 - on a 2X2,66 MHz Proc. machine. It’s when I use Norton Ghost 15.0 I get the message”Error save this file "D:$mft" in another place"
    and the Ghost doesn’t let me go around it - just stops!
  3. Where are you trying to back up your c: drive to? If you don't have the D: drive anymore what do you have? Do you run ghost from a command line or the user interface? If so do you set the target drive to your new backup device before you start the backup? It sounds like ghost is configured to back up on d: drive now.

    I Use a USB Disk for the backup and I target that one for the backup. I use the interface of the Ghost I Installd on the C:drive.
  5. What drive letter is the USB? Is there a place in ghost to specify the target? Is there enough room on the USB?
