I have a 0.5 GB Vista64 boot disk (#3) that I am attempting to copy or restore to a 1 GB disk (#0). When I use disk copy, it fails at 99% with "At the end of something". When I do a restore, it fails at 99% with "At the end of something". The full error messages and screen sample are below. The backup works fine and I've verified recovery points. After the error, I reboot and I can view the files on the drive without issue. It appears to be ok, but why the errors?
I tried booting with the SRD, backing up, and restoring. I used DiskPart to Clean drive #0 before copying or restoring. Both drives are on the same controller. They are different manufacturers: #3 is Hitachi, #0 is Seagate. I ran SeaTools tests on disk #0 to make sure it was reliable. I've run chkdsk and scanned for viruses on disk #3. I tried restoring with a drive letter and "none" as the drive letter. I tried with and without checking for system errors. I tried with and without resizing the drive.
Any help will be appreciated because I'm "at the end of something"!
From windows event log...
Error EC8F17B3: Cannot complete copying of (C:\) drive.
Error EC8F0409: Cannot copy source drive to destination location.
Error EA390013: At end of something. (UMI:V-281-3215-6067)

I wonder what would happen if you did not check 'Resize drive to fill unallocated space" and then just used DiskPart or Disk Management to expand the partition?

I can't find it at present but there is a link to download the Ghost 14 SRD. There is a similar issue to yours where the Ghost 14 CD works to restore an image but the Ghost 15 CD doesn't. It's worth a try with the image you have already created.
Anyone have the download link?
