I've been having problems with my Norton Ghost backups, which hang at the very end of the backups, preventing their completion.
But now, I think it's not a Ghost problem: Frequently when I delete a set of files using Windows Explorer, it's hanging at the end as well. This makes me think it's a deeper problem within the Windows file system software.
To be explicit, within Windows Explorer I select a set of files and then right mouse click and Delete. A dialog comes up to track the deletions, file by file. The deletion takes place (they are removed from the display of files), yet the dialog remains - and it will remain indefinitely.
I'm suspecting that this failure to cleanly complete simple file operations is related to my hangs in Ghost backups.
