Creating a GHOST image of my ext3 partition


I have a Mandrake and WindowsXp system.

After hours and hours compiling and configuring Mandrake 10.0, I like that it works.

I would like to make an GHOST image and burn it with my DVD RW.

I have an bootable cd called Hiren's Bootcd and it run ghost program.

Ghost found my ext3 partition an write the image correctly in other partition (FAT32) (15 minutes)

When I restart Windows XP the file don't exist, what's happening???

Thanks

Excuse my.

My Hard Drive have 40 Gb and I partition with partition magic cd when it was new, my partitions are FAT32, ext3 and swap I don't have NTFS, and if I have it, GHOST write perfectly in NTFS.

C: 16Gb FAT 32 (windows XP)
D: ext3 LINUX 4,5 Gb non readable from windows
E: swap 500 Mb non readable from windows
F: 19 Gb FAT 32 my data partition
G: DVD -RW PIONER

I have an clean Windows XP image when I installed for first time my pc, burned in a DVD-R and I had restore 2 times without problems.

GHOST read correctly ext3 but don't save the image!!!

I think that GHOST is a dos-based program. If you are attempting to create a backup of your ext3, try Drakbackup instead. Then burn it to your DVD-RW..

clonezilla is the program you want. On the commercial side, Acronis works very well and is very user friendly.

Whoops didn't notice this thread was 5 years old! What the heck?
