You need to backup and/or restore a Ghost Console database in Ghost Solution Suite 2.5.x.


The Ghost Solution Suite has database backup and restore utilities in the C:\Program Files\Symantec\Ghost\scripts folder. Here is how to use them:

To back up your Ghost database:

Browse to C:\Program Files\Symantec\Ghost\scripts and double-click the backupdb.wsf file; this will run without any progress bar or message indicating success. It will create a folder called GSSBackup in the currently logged in user's My Documents folder.

To restore your Ghost database on the same machine:

Browse to My Documents\GSSBackup and double-click Restore Latest Backup.

To restore your Ghost database on another machine:

Copy the My Documents\GSSBackup to the new machine and double-click the Restore Latest Backup file.
