Insert the norton ghost cd and restart to boot off the cd. Then click advanced recovry tasks then select utilities select map network drive select drive letter then select the image to copy to the drive.
Mine is norton 9.0 so if you have the newer one it will be different

I want to format my hard drive


If you have a true image to restore from, as like what is created with Win7 Pro Backup, or from Norton Ghost, you should be able to make a total restore. The destination drive had to be the same size or larger than from the drive the original image was taken from.

With Windows, you will require the image recovery DVD disk that are created using the OS that the image was generated from. With Ghost, you will require the Ghost recovery DVD disk to restore the image.

Don't know how to restore files from backup done with North Ghost


Using Norton Ghost 9.0 is very good program to backup your System & Documents.
You said the PC is dead then you want to restore back your System to a new PC.
All you have to do is that Norton Ghost 9.0 CD is Bootable.
Of course also your external hard drive are plug in it too.
Manually you're going to open that Sv2i file to restore back again your old system but there are some programs that are not going to use. Like for example: System Drivers (Motherboard Driver, LAN, SOUND, etc.) but at least you have the Documents and the rest of the programs run again.
I try it myself this kind of situation, I'm using Windows 2000 with Norton Ghost 9.0 version, and it's 100% works. Good luck!
Hope i might give you some tip & idea.
Tell me more about if you got a problem.
Please rate me.
Thank you.

Backup of hard drive


I use Norton Ghost 9 and I love it. Initially, it makes a complete image of your harddrive. I would purchase a good sized external harddrive and attach it via USB and use it as your backup drive.

Norton will allow you to schedule "incremental backups" as often as you like. I have mine set for every night at 1AM.

The biggest reason to use this system is if your C: drive fails, you can use Norton Ghost to completely restore your system from the backup image on a new harddrive and be up and running as if nothing happened within a few hours. No installing applcations, settings or anything. It's wonderful!

Reformatted computer, found files with GHS & GHO,how to recover?


Hi 'jen2x':

I’m Melinda and I represent Symantec’s PR Department.

Norton Ghost has the following key features:

  • Full system backup (disk image)—Backs up everything on a hard drive or partition.
  • File and folder backup—Backs up only the specific files and folders you choose rather than saving an entire drive.
  • FTP backup—Copies recovery points to a FTP site for easier offsite backup management. NEW
  • Offsite backup—backs up your files to NAS (Network-Attached Storage) devices. NEW
  • Symantec ThreatCon integration—triggers incremental backups whenever ThreatCon reaches a specified threat level. Great for computers without virus protection. NEW
  • Incremental and differential backup—Backs up only files that have changed.
  • EXCLUSIVE! Google Desktop™ integration—Makes data recovery even faster with searchable backup indexes.
  • LightsOut Restore—Restores your system with an on-disk software recovery environment—no bootable CD required.
  • EXCLUSIVE! Remote management—Controls other Norton Ghost installations (12.0 or higher) on your local area network.
  • Advanced compression and encryption—Minimizes storage space and helps keep sensitive documents safe.

Norton ghost 14... I cant recover back up...


Ghost saved the drive information in an image file.  Whatever you named your backup you would see *.gho, *001.gho, *002.gho.  That is your whole hard drive in a spanned image file.  Ghost Explorer is what you need to open and view these images and you would be able to extract files as your would from a zip file.  There are no restore points as you would think using Windows Restore.  Only the raw hard drive information as it appears on your dive now.  I'm  not sure if Ghost Explorer is provided with the home edition as I'm used to the enterprise for my work.
let me know if this helps

WD 500 GB resized by Norton Ghost Restore to 120 GB and can not get it to original size.


You should partition your new drive first to say 160Gb (you lose a bit after formatting) for 1st partition and the remaining capacity for the 2nd partition. Because your Ghost image is 120Gb it can only restore to a partition of 120Gb, that is why it shows 120Gb on a 500Gb on a single partition.
You may be able to fix this problem without starting again by using Disk Manager (from Control Panel - Admoinistrative Tools) to create a 2nd partition on the hard drive and format this partition.

Need software


gho is the extension of backup file format saved by Norton Ghost, that is Norton backup program.
GHO file extension can only be opened with Norton Ghost, and restored on an hard drive, after extraction you can save data on optical support using any CD burner software.

I want to restore my dell laptop to factory settings


You need the system disks from the manufacturer, Dell to restore the computer to factory defaults. The system disks come in two forms, windows disks, and computer specific system disks. I am unsure of the disks that come with your notebook, but most likely they are system specific.
To restore the system, put the disk in the drive, restart the computer and after the POST (power on self test) push the F12 button. This will bring up the one-time boot screen allowing you to boot off of the CD. The next step is to format the computer and windows should begin to reinstall.
As for anti-virus, I use Antivira Anti-Virus Personal. It's free and can be downloaded from the link below.

Ibm thinkpad T40 Hard Drive change out


After fdisk and format you need to ensure that operative system is installed into yor hard drive. Using ghost you restore the image disk by booting from ghost image CD if you made a bootable image disk. Ensure Bios is set up to boot from CD.
If you used Norton Ghost ensure you captured the image of full bootable original hard disk drive for same computer. If it does not boot after restoring ghosted image, than the image it is probably not complete. If hard disk image is not good, easiest thing to do is using Windows install CD to installl again operative system, then you eventually restore ghost image.
