I had a 'problem' on my Medion desktop computer and accidentally did the system recovery using the wrong disc; the one for my Acer laptop. The recovery created some Symantec ghost folders on the D: (partition) drive. Can I retrieve any information from those folders please?
THere is a program called 'RECUVER', that is said to be good at recovering files (I have not used it myself). It might be best to recover what working data you can and re-build the system from scratch, therefore removing the problem.
Another good recovery program is CDCHECK (free trial) Terry
Thank you everybody. The problem happened a while ago and the machine has been OK since. I just got the impression that 'My Documents' or the contents may be wrapped up in the .GHS & .GHO files. I tried a trial copy of ghost 15 last night but it appears to use a different file type, .ft*, and does not recognise the others. I will try the other options over the weekend.
Sorry Mat, the 'ft' was in the file name not the extension. It appears that the only thing that can possibly open these now is Norton Ghost 6.5 but the .GHO is corrupt and without that you cannot access the .GHS. Thanks again but I think I will call this resolved (not really but we can manage). P.S. If you Google Norton Ghost 6.5 you get lots of offers of "free download" and then they try and sell you anything but. Especially sites with "soft" in them.
