trying to clone C drive to a new seagate ST130013A 80 gig, but Ghost 9.0 can not complete
because the disk is not allocated completely. it appears that the wizard for seagate installation
and/or XP PRO leave a 7MB unallocated area on the new disk. I used Ghost 2003 and had no problems
cloning a disk in win98se. :tazz:

cannot copy source drive to dest drive location
ERROR EA3905FE cluster not allocated 0xEA390FE

Thanks
Michael

Why did you partition/format the destination disk at all? When ghosting, you need not do that. Remove the partitions from the destination disk and try again...does the problem repeat?

Thanks Gerryf

I didn't intentionally, when we ran the seagate format wizard, we must have made an error
how do i get the unallocated partition off the drive and get it to a single partition

Thanks Michael

Delete the partition, don't try to fart around with the remaining space. I do not think it is affecting this issue.

The extra space left by partitioning programs when you set up an ntfs partition is there for a purpose. I was not aware that seagate would do it, but Windows XP leaves the space for use if you later decide to create dynamic disks

What or how would you suggest to delete the unallocated area?

Thanks
Michael
