Auto ghost back the latest ghost --- usb --- grub4dos method
Jun 23rd, 2012 at 12:05am
 
USB version

Use at your own risk.
The batch file will ghostback your latest ghostfile.gho to first
unhidden primary partition.

Assumption
   ghostfile.gho is located in main directory on one drive
   ghostfile.gho is name as ghostfile1.gho, ghostfile2.gho etc.
   
   




Can download the file here...

Your download appears to contain a working copy of *ghost.exe*--that's a protected, licensed program by Symantec, and distributing it would be a violation of their EULA!  That's the one main rule we have here on our forum--no distribution of licensed software that is not freeware or in the public domain for free use and distribution.

I have temporarily removed your link.

You can offer a download without that proprietary program that others can then copy their properly licensed version of the program to the boot disc, disk, or usb flashdrive.

Sorry, my mistake.

Here is the correct one without ghost.exe

As per Dan's comments in the other thread my script did not cover all senarios.

It is better to use ghost manually.

Back to the drawing board ...     Embarrassed

@

Thanks for your contribution. I had a lot of fun using your CD and USB flash drive in my test computer and I was oblivious to the potential problems until I saw Dan's posts.

I'm keen on automated restores too but I'm not a Ghost user. My restore scripts use a "named" image and the target is identified by Disk Signature and Partition ID. The restore environment is a WinPE installed on the HD. No CDs or USBFDs.
