Ghost 14: Delayed Write Fail
I run Ghost 14 on Windows XP Home Edition with all the service packs. Just one computer with 2.2 GHz CPU and 2 Gb of new memory. The computer shares a DSL connection through a router, but there is no network.
I have successfully created several one-time recovery points.
I've defined one Ghost incremental recovery point for two drives: C (system drive, 10.3 Gb contents) and E (data drive, 57.8 Gb contents). The destination is drive F, a separate internal HDD.
When I run the incremental backup, I consistently get a Windows error: "Delayed Write Fail. Windows was unable to save all the data for the file F:\$Mft." Sometimes the specified file is different, e.g. F:\$BitMap.
This usually happens about midway through the backup, presumably when Ghost has backed up C and is backing up E.
Any suggestions on how I can avoid this problem?
