Technical Solution



While using Ghost to create an image file or perform a Disk to Disk cloning operation, you see the message "15079 The file size is less that the reported size."



This appears to be due to corruption of the directory entry for a file. To resolve the problem, run a disk utility or a defragmenting utility on the source drive, and then run Ghost.

See the document How to handle a corrupt image file.
