Windows XP Backup fails to complete

  1. Hi,

    I am trying to backup my entire HDD to a 2nd HDD.

    Every time I run the backup in Windows - it fails after 4GB and says that it cannot create a backup file bigger than 4GB.

    Seems to suggest that it's because FAT32 cant read files any bigger than 4GB - but i dont have any HDD formatted as FAT32.....?

    BOTH my HDD's are NTFS ???

    Does anybody know whats going on ?

    I'll probably end up getting Norton Ghost - but I dont want to spend any cash.....less money on rubbish = more money for mushrooms = FUN

    please help
