I got round this by disabling "limit on number of recovery point sets saved for this backup" - not exactly a solution but at least it got me a valid backup - just need to delete old sets every now and then I guess to save backup disk space .
Hope this helps

Hi Deric - I realise my suggestion is a "band-aid" solution but it gets you a valid backup for the time being. If you get a robust solution, can you add it to this thread?

I have had no positive feedback from Tony and the team yet, but I have been experimenting for a couple of days and have concluded that the OEM software that I have from a friend is for distribution on a corporate network only. The clue was when I loaded XP Pro OEM on a test machine and the XP UI was completely different to the retail version and asking for the Administrator details. Ghost 12 and Ghost 15 wouldn't even load. As far as Vista was concerned the only evidence was the error message (ED800012) when Ghost 15 couldn't compare the files on the O/S (Vista) to it's own when the final validation stage was reached.

No feedback from Tony and the team, but my previous post explains the problem and the remedy was to backup with Ghost 2003 (ms-dos). As analternative to G2003 I believe Ghost Backup Executive 8.5 will copy without the error. The error is caused by G15 not supporting corporate type OEM software. The software I had from a friend was for corporate use hence the error code. Hope that explains it for you. Deric.

Hi Deric - I suspect that this error may have multiple causes as my software is not corporate. Strangely, my backup now has the dreaded fault of trying to create a recovery point and having a touch of the vapours at 1% into the backup process. How can we have any confidence in a program's ability to save us from major PC disaster when there are so many problems with it when the PC is working perfectly. In fairness, this problem is not limited to Norton Ghost software.
