Reading .GHS files
Aug 16th, 2006 at 3:34pm
 
Okay, so from my prior post on the subject, I've not got my system mostly back, and working okay.

The only thing I want to try to do is copy a file from the backup that I had made, unfortunately the .GHO file was/is corrupt (and was trashed by running CHKDSK which was what was suggested by Symantec's website).

Anyone have a way to either just read .GHS files, or to create another backup and trick ghost into reading it? I did try a quick "just replace the .GHO file with another" but ghostexp kept asking for the last image file, I also did try just reading the .GHS files, but that just asks for the first image file? This is using the -ignoreindex flag when running Ghostexp.

Did you also try the *-corrupt* switch when running Ghost Explorer as mentioned in the other thread--also *no joy*?

Unfortunately, no other way has been found/noted on these forums of any way to access Ghost files except by restoring from the image files or mounting the image files in Ghost Explorer.

Yeah, unfortunately it seems that even with the -corrupt switch it still needs the .GHO file to be intact... I'll play with it some more but at this point I think it's not going to work... hmm wonder if I can sequentially replace files... might play with that.
