I need to format a drive inside 2000 pro

Is any one familiar with Norton Ghost 9.0?

I can't copy disk to disk in DOS as I'm use to doing where it has the brains to copy I've old files with new.

Now in 2000 Ghost 9.0 you can copy a drive...ONCE! Then the GD bug wits tell you the receiving or destination drive is full! What do I care if it's full I'm try to copy another drive OVER the old information!

I've look all over the GD program. No place to delete all files! So I can copy a drive to a drive...just ONCE!???

Then it's full and Norton is to stupid to erase it ?

They did better in DOS Ghost 7 years ago!! HELP!

There has to be a way to do this!

When I try to format the drive under 2000 pro it says some other disk utility has it, wonder if that could be GD Norton? I think so!

The drive I want to empty for new back ups is a slave to my C drive.

How easiest to format it under dos FDISK?
TIA!

Under DOS?

Yeah, I'd just FDISK the thing; just delete all the partitions on the drive and then run Ghost.
