corrupted gho file????
I successfully created a image of a hard drive, at least I thought it was successfully created. Anyway I reimaged the drive and I was going to extract some of the files from the gho image that I created. I get the following message when I try to open the ___.gho file. "Please slect the file for the last segment in this image file." and the options given is it is looking for a file with the GHS, 0 extension. When I created the image from the drive I created the image on an external usb 500 gb hard drive. Even though when the program finished only one file was created on the external drive. This GHO file is over 100gb in size. I am not sure what version of ghost created the file, but everything I did to try to open the file would not work. I get the same error message as listed above as it is looking for a ghs file which is not there. I need to extract some crucial files from this image, most of what was imaged I do not need as applications can be reinstalled once the drive is reimaged.
Here is what I have tried so far, I tried to open the file with Ghost explorer 11.0, ghost explorer2003, and even downloaded a trial version of Symantec Ghost Console Trialware, each of them give the same popup, where it is looking for the ghs file.
The next thing I did is try to run the ghost explorer 11.0 in a command line using various switches such as -ignoreindexes -corrupt, and -ntextract still I get the same popup as mentioned above looking for a ghs file.
I tried to use the ghofixup.exe in a command line (cmd window), but am not sure I ran it correctly. I copied the ghofixup.exe to the drive that contains my ghost image. then I opened the cmd window and typed the letter of the drive: ie D:\
Then when I was at the proper drive I typed ghosfixup.exe Rolf.gho then pressed enter
This is the result I got: "usage: ghofixup.exe <image file> <cd!span> then it goes back to the dos prompt. am I running the command correctly? Or is this application only for backing up data to discs?
I am lost and do not know where to go from here. I really need to recover the files some how, I been spending all day on this issue without any progress and my client is anxious to have her computer back.
I did not know if there was any difference between the commercial ghost and the home version of ghost. I tried to open the file on my home computer that has ghost 15.0 but apparently this product does not open gho files nor does it create files with a gho extension. I was hoping that I would be able to some how crack open the file to extract important pictures for my client.
