I found I somehow have parition overlap (not sure how that happened...I used acronis to it). Now Norton ghost (version 15) won't let me make backups and I am not sure what to really do.

Reading on the Norton Forums I found to check I should use a utlitity they have called "partinfo.exe"

This makes a file called "partinfo.txt" what is quite long so here is the highlight of it.

what version of Norton Ghost are you using? What's telling you that there is overlap? Have you checked the condition of the partition(s) with any (other) partitioning or disk tools? Did this ever work? What changed? –  Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Mar 31 '12 at 1:24

What utility reported that? Some older apps can't handle modern large size drives and incorrectly report errors. Have you taken a look at gparted live to examine/check/fix the partitions? –  jdh Mar 31 '12 at 1:24
    
No I have not tried gpart. I have updated my answer. –  chobo2 Mar 31 '12 at 1:55
    
I suggest pastebin.com for long text files. –  Eroen Mar 31 '12 at 3:04
