Norton Ghost problems

  1. Hi all,

    I ran Norton Ghost (version 10, running XP Pro) yesterday, and made a backup of my laptop just fine. When I ran it today, I checked the "Progress and Performance" tab and I basically sat there for about ten minutes and watched the words "Initializing" and "Calculating remaining time"... Usually, when I go to make these incremental recovery points it takes five minutes total at most, and this time it didn't move along at all.
    Also, when I went to go explore the recovery point I created yesterday, the whole program froze up on me.

    It's weird, because 24 hours ago, it was working fine.

    - The target disk I'm using isn't full at all.

    Help's appreciated,

    How about the source disk?

    Check the Windows Event Viewer for any disk error messages.

    I took a look at the Windows Event Viewer and I didn't see any disk errors.
    It's weird, because what I did was I deleted the recovery point set in its entirety and made a new manual base point, and started a completely new set... The old set had about 46 recovery points in it, each being made daily, and it was in creation of this 47th point that it didn't go through.
