When trying to run Ghost32 on Windows 2003 server to create an image from the C drive to another drive even if the other drive is internal or external (such like USB HDD), you will get the following error message:

Error: A source volume could not be locked (640)

That's because Ghost is not designed to create a hot images from server OS.
