I wanted to thank you guys for posting this information because it helped me solve my problem with Norton Ghost 10. I have been doing a fresh replatforming of my computer, and had installed Norton Ghost 10 and created a couple of Recovery Points to a networked, mapped, drive location on another PC on my home netowrk. Today, I went to do another Recovery Point, but I was encountering these similar problems (after about 20 seconds of creating a Recovery Point, Norton Ghost would error out ). Sample:
After the usual rounds of uninstalls/installs of NG10, EVENTUALLY found that BlackIce Proventia Desktop Protection Version 8.0.675.1720 firewall was causing the problem (this firewall has "application protection"). [Originally, was using WinXP SP2's built-in firewall]
Anyway, if you are running any kind of firewall, other than the built-in Windows XP SP2 firewall, you might try and turn it off !
-Error EC8F17B7: Cannot create recovery points for job: Recovery point of C:\.
---Unable to write to file.
----Error EBAB03F1: The specified network name is no longer available.
----Unable to set file size.
-----Error EBAB03F1: The specified network name is no longer available.
Since my last successful Recovery Point, I had installed MS Office and also the Panda Titanium Antivirus 2005. After reading the point above, I decided to un-install Panda. Trying to create a Recovery Point after this worked without a problem. I had previously tried to deactivate the Panda Firewall, and in fact, all the features of Panda, but Norton Ghost kept on giving the same problem.
Anyway, I created my Geeks To go account today, just to post this update on this thread because I thought it might help others.
