Using Ghost Console to Ghost an SSD

Created: 09 Mar 2011 | 3 comments

Hi,

I have Ghost 11.5 and I am trying to use the ghost console to ghost an image of an "external" SSD. An OS and drivers are already installed on the SSD, so I want to create an image of the drive and save it to my Main computer (that has Ghost installed on it). I want to ghost the image within windows. I've tried a few things and nothing seemed to work out. Any tips? I really need to figure this out soon.... Thanks!

How is the SSD connected to your machine?

What operating system are you running?

What have you tried?  What precisely has happened?

I presume the SSD is not actually running but is a "slave" on your system as you describe it as "external". Can you XCOPY files from it, to your local system?

If your issue has been solved, please use the "Mark as Solution" link on the most relevant thread.

You will need Ghost 11.5.1 build 2266 as a minimum

The first time I tried to image from and to an SSD, I received an error "27100 - Image file contains corrupt data run."

At the following link I found the suggestion to use the -ntc- switch when pulling and pushing the image.

Using the -ntc- resolved the issue and the image now clones successfully.
