    Is it possible to open and image and drop changes or additional files to an image? I get the disk is write protected.

    Thx
    Mike

    No. You have to make the changes on your disk and create a new image.

    You got to be kidding me how lame, Ghost allows you to do it with v8, it doesnt support ntfs yet.

    You seem to be missing the point of what a backup image is or does. If you could modify it it would no longer be a backup of the source .

    It sure doesn't make sense to me to have an image of your valuable system and then want to get into it and fool with the contents. I can't even imagine why I would want to do that. Clean out the garbage before you make the copy and if you want to add more files to the archive, do an incremental backup if you don't want to do the whole thing.

    I am looking at it for deployment of systems and might need to upload a revised file to a program we support and if I had an image I would then be able to open the image and drop a newer build of a file or exe to the image and save it without restoring and image and creating it, seems sensless in my scenario when I have 90+ images that could change everyweek.
    For your so called backup needs thats different but this isnt the same.
    Now you can imagine why other people might need a different solution then yours. Your scenario doesnt apply to all of us. Geeze Your answer seemed to be alittle abrupt so there ya go.

    Yes, I should have found out what it was you were trying to do rather than jump to a conclusion.

    Are you sure Ghost lets you modify images, my experience with it some time ago didn't?

    yes we are using version 8, but does not work with ntfs. Our 98 images works well with ghost but we wanted to move to acronis since we use it for our servers.

    thx though

    Mike
