How do I reset number with NG 15?
Nov 23rd, 2012 at 9:03pm
 
Norton Ghost attaches a sequential number to each recovery file it creates.  Since I just replaced my backup drive, I'd like to set the number to start over at 001.  How do I do this?

Thanks, Bill

I'm not a Ghost 15 user--so I don't have an answer from experience--but, perhaps these posts will help:

Looks like they recommend deleting *history* data files kept by Ghost, and then letting Ghost *rebuild* those files.  You probably have to re-create your scheduled backups.

Or, one poster un-installed and re-installed Ghost 15 to clear Ghost's memory--I suppose that might re-set the Ghost file numbering.

But, none of the above are talking about the sequential numbering of Ghost backups--you might be able to post to the forum above and find someone who can help.

Let us know what you find out.
