It is possible, you will have to enable some command switches to bypass the errors.

Well, what type of errors are you getting on the drive? Is it bootable or a storage drive? Can you compact the bad sectors into a partition of the disk and then ghost the single partition?

Yeah I think I agree with that. Enable the option to make Ghost ignore the errors and continue creating an image. I beleive I saw that option in there. I would only do this if it was an emergency to prevent data actually I would just backup the data that was intact and start over with a new hard disk.
