I am trying to convert a ghost image file of a drive to a VMware disk image. I am following the command found here and get the following error (made 2 attempts):

I can't find much in the way of solutions on the web, so I was hoping someone here would know what would cause it to be considered an invalid source drive, as I know it's a valid ghost image created with Ghost 11.5. Thanks

Looks like you should be using mode=restore if I am reading that article right. Have you tried using restore and do you get the same error?

Ghost32 -clone,mode=restore,src=Drive_D.GHO,dst=DriveD.vmdk -batch -sure

Wow, that is correct. In my haste I must have glanced at the wrong command when typing it in and then didn't notice it on subsequent read-throughs >_<. It appears to be working correctly now. Thanks. – tj111 Oct 29 '10 at 14:50
Great to hear, I think we are all susceptible to doing that. – David Remy Oct 29 '10 at 14:55
