In my experience when i have used ghost 10, u can go into (from my memory), into options, and check mark the crc ignore and another section has to ignore errors.. now i haven't actually done a ghost back up, but a disk clone, so not positive that u will have the same options..

S.m.a.r.t says my hardrive is going to fail,i have been getting the message for over a week every time i boot up,appart from that everything is ok.i have done a full backup,my question is could this...


Hi,
Smart for hard drives is usually very accurate. If you have a warning message from the Smart system the back up your data immediately, don't delay at all! It probably means you drive has developed some terminally bad sectors. Hard drives have spare sectors to cover this in normal use but if too may die too quickly then Smart will warn of likely failure! Buy a new hard drive and try Norton Ghost (tell it to ignore CRC errors and bad sectors) and clone your drive to a new one without the need for re-install, this keeps everything as it originally was including all your data and even the windows activation status! Instructions for Norton Ghost are easy to find from Symantec or Google. After saving you data or cloning to a new drive, try using "HDD regenerator 1.71" to scan and fix sectors on your old drive. If bad sectors are recovered ok then you have a backup hard drive to use. Do not trust it with your life though as once a drive starts to go it may continue in any case to fail. It also may work faultlessly as a backup for many years.

I hope this helps

Looking for the backup option for computer


I suggest that you use Norton Ghost v14.0 and create a compressed image of your primary partition to a DVD-R. You can use my autoupdate of Norton Antivirus Update Defintions for use with Ghost v14.0 for pre-boot virus scans, download the ISO burner and creater HERE or HERE please keep my links alive.

This will allow you to reinstall after catastrophic failure of your HDD.

If you just want to backup your images and documents a good U3 stick drive or USB harddrive is an excellent option for storing your document folders.

Error Copying old c: drive w/Ghost 9


Do a disk defrag on the source drive. If that doesn't work, you may have a virus on your source drive and norton ghost is catching before getting on your destination drive.

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!

Can't backup my harddrive


I work at a computer repair shop, and we use norton ghost all the time. Its very easy to use and I would definatly reccommend it. As for a backup CD, you would need an external cd or dvd burner which costs between $50-100. Another solution is to complety wipe your hard drive and install windows fresh. This would remove all the factory installed programs as well as all your data so back it up! I hope this helped you.

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

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.
