Ghost 10 back-up

This may well be a daft question but it's giving me grief!! I have set-up Ghost to back-up my C-Drive and am having a problem locating a file i recently deleted (after running a back-up). The file was in a folder within My Documents. Now the stupid question: If i have opted to back-up the C-drive, does this include the My Documents folder. I ask since i cannot find the deleted file anywhere within the backed-up files.

Not much help, but my Ghost contains 'My Documents' folder with everything in it. Afraid you will have to wait for the 'experts' to advise further.

As Ghost backs up the complete drive, it will include the My Documents folder. You could open up Ghost image, click on File, mount the drive and then be able to search the whole of the image for your file. If it is there it will be found. Dismount the drive afterwards.

Thanks both, I found the My Documents folder eventually but the file wasn't in it. But i think i've worked out why not. When i backed up this morning the only folders backed up were those that existed when i backed up the previous time. Any folders created since were missing. I've given up a little and totally wiped all previous back-ups and started again. i think it was set on incremental back-ups but surely that would include new folders as well as files. I'll just do a complete back-up in future. thanks again
