I purchased a new 300 gig HDD, and partitioned it as a 60gig and a 220gig.\nI moved most of my files to the new drive in order to reduce the size of the\noperating system. I ended up with just 30 gig.\nThen I took a Ghost image & saved it to the new drive.\nThe idea was to put the 30gig on the new 60gig partition, but Ghost keeps\nfailing to put the image back.\nI then tried maxblast to copy the 30gig C to the new 60gig F\nThis completed, but said 3 files that were not needed could not be copied.\nI tried to boot from this, but windows started, then just displayed an XP\nlogo and did not load the OS. I even tried booting from a windows CD and\nusing the recovery console, but it did not recognise a valid windows system.\n(I should have tried to make a new boot ini, but did not)\nFor some reason my 30gig on my 200gig C had now gone to 90gig. I used tree\nsize pro to look at why, but it stated 30gig, I used chkdsk from the\nrecovery console, but it remained the same.\nNortons disk doctor now shows 60gig of bad sectors!\nIf I try and use Ghost, it wants to copy 90gig, all I want to copy is the\ngood 30gig.\n\nAnyone got any ideas how to fix the bad 60gig, and just leave the good\n30gig, so I can have a go at getting Ghost to make another image. If I took\nan image at the moment (even assuming I had the space), I would end up with\n60gig of crap (I think)\n\nIn short I want to transfer my 30gig operating system to a partition on a\nnew drive, but at present it is too big.\n\nIf I use Maxblast again, will it try and copy bad sectors as Ghost wants to\ndo?
