    Hi a thing,

    thanks for that.
    I read it's not fully NTFS compatible...
    The reason why I need to Ghost is because I have to restore data from a 160 GB NTFS harddrive that is giving a lot of readerrors.
    Would that work?
    Then, I have to use a browser to restore any good data.
    The idea was to use the NTFS browser that comes with

    to look for financial data.
    But it requires you to make a clone first when a HD has this many errors.

    Do you know what the best plan of action would be to save the data?
    The MBR is ok, when indexing the MFT it stalls due to an error message every second (I stopped clicking 'Ignore' after ten minutes).

    Thanks,

    Marinus.
