Re: Symantec Ghost **Image Restoration**

Thread Moved

.GHO Files are the main Ghost Image file, it's a proprietary file extension used by Ghost. .GHS files are spans of the .GHO, as Ghost splits the files up every 2GB or so, but they can't be read/restored without the .GHO file to go along with it.

What is the extension for the file you are trying to restore?

-edit-

Here is some decent info : http://ghost.radified.com/ghost_3.htm

Re: Symantec Ghost **Image Restoration**

When you say Ghost 8.0 are you talking about Ghost 2003?

Clone and Image are two different things. The .gho is an image file, clone is just a complete replica/copy of your drive (no file type if you use the clone feature) you cannot restore an image from a clone/copy.

You will have to use the clone feature again and clone it back if you used “clone drive and not backup drive”.

“You cannot use restore image with a clone of the drive”

No its not ghost 2003 its ghost 8.0 enterprise edition.
and i think you are right about the cloning becuase i dont see an image w/ .gho extention , i guess i basically copied my laptop drive into my external ,only problem is theresnt an option where i can restore Clone -->HD

solution found i did make a clone >.< instead of an image ... I feel stupid :-(

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
