When using Ghost to clone a drive or create an image, you see the message: "(29006) Read sector failure..."
This error indicates that the source drive has bad sectors. Run Scandisk or Norton Disk Doctor, choosing the thorough surface test. If there are too many bad sectors that cannot be recovered, Ghost may not function on this drive.
You can also use the -BFC switch to set Ghost to skip bad sectors. This causes Ghost to continue even with bad sectors, though Ghost will abort if the number of bad sectors is larger than 500.
