Norton Ghost 14 - incremental recovery points are sometimes huge

Ghost 14 has an annoying characteristic that Ghost 10 - which I just upgraded from - did not have. I run an "auto incremental recovery point" job each night at 4AM. Normally the created file is in the area of 200MB but now and then the file will come in at 2 or 3 or 4GB. There is no consolidation here - this is just a regular incremental. The implication is that a large volume of files got modified and so Ghost picked them up into the incremental. I see no reason for this to be the case. My PC operates pretty much as it did when Ghost 10 was installed and this never happened with 10. I think Ghost 14 is getting confused by something.

Any thoughts? Is this a bug or a side effect of something else or what? Anyone else seeing this behavior?

Ideas would be appreciated.

SOURCE: trying to reinstall norton ghost v14

I have the same problem with you. Lukily enough I found the solution from this website.

http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic107021.html

However, I didn't uninstall the NOD32 in my PC prior to double click the Norton Removal Tool.
It seems to work fine anyway. As soon as the NRT finishes its task which takes only a few minutes,
I reintall the Norton Ghost 14 and it works without any problem.

Good luck.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: need to be able to re install norton 360 after use of restoration disc

If you are in love with Norton.... Personally I use Avast the free version and have foudn it very good. Just look out for it on the internet. As regards Norton, if you do not have a cd then you must have downloaded an installation file and saved that somehwere, if not I am sure that if you are a registerd user you could still downlad it again if it is still covered byt the licence you paid for.

SOURCE: Hi, How do I recover my Office 2003 Auto Correct

Hi,
This will only work if the drive with your new Windows installation is larger than the drive with your ghost image.
Assuming that the above is true, do the following:
Using disk management, create a partition on your hard drive which is large enough to accept your entire ghost backup. Restore your ghost image to this partition and then select any files or folders you may need. Once you have the necessary files you can delete the partition again if need be and use it for other storage purposes.
Let me know if you need any further assistance regarding the above.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

It sounds to me that unfortunately you have an error on your recorded CD and there will be nothing you can do to repair that.
The installation of Norton should not cause the problem itself an error on the hard drive will usually cause that problem.

Well, you could see if Norton Ghost has a password recovery feature. Do you even need to password protect your files?

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.

you need to remove Norton with Nortons own removal tools. Add/remove program not the same thing as it leaves stuff in the registry. Go to norton.com and get removal tool..Run it, then try the re-install.

Which antivirus previously installed? If any antivirus present then remove it in safe mode.
And better to install Norton in Safe mode
Go to Safe Mode with Networking by Tapping F8 key during Bootup, a black screen with option, select the option and then login as Admin account..

If it fails, then try using the Security Configuration Tool to make sure you have privileges to Ghost. You'll find the Tool in your programs menu under Programs|Norton Ghost|Security Configuration Tool.
After then, install Norton.. Let me know the status for further assistance.
Best of Luck
