I have happily been using Ghost with Windows 98. I have a clean installation on my C drive of the operating system and all my programs and I clone this to the next partition, my D drive (all data is on the third partition E). When I want to clean out acquired rubbish up I clone D drive back to C. I have now installed XP and I can't perform this operation. The re-cloned drive hangs up on the splash screen. The manual says Ghost works on XP but what is going wrong?
