Forgot Norton Ghost Recovery Password

Created: 28 Apr 2013 | 3 comments


My name is Eduardo.

I forgot the Norton Ghost Recovey Password.

When I boot my pc with the recovery dvd and I choose for recoverying, it asks me a user´s name and the password, and I forgot it.

What can I do ?

You could try going to Documents in the left hand pane and then Symantec to see what is listed.

If not uninstall Ghost and re install and run without a password.

The way I understand your question is that when you created the backup job you set up a password for the backup set. You aren't sure what the password is and cannot restore the set.

I'm sorry to say that I don't believe you will be able to recover the password. You could try opening up a support case, but I don't think they will be able or willing to help with this.

If this solves your problem, please mark this post as the solution.
