What is GHO File?
A GHO file is a backup file that is made by Norton. It comprises of a preview of a hard drive or some other media gadget and makes a precise of the disc by saving the information. These files are for the most part used for making full hard disc backup. GHO files incorporate the total backup for the entire gadget, typically a hard drive is made using the Norton program from Symantec.
A GHO file is a Xerox of the entire material of a hard disk to any other computer hard disk or to store the media, including the disc header information which is lost in an original copy and paste process. In this process Ghost suite itself formats and partition the target disc. The ghost is mainly useful where one system is to be identical on a number of computers or when someone wanted to have the complete backup of everything on their personal computer.
Steps to open GHO files
Step 1:- Double-Tap on the file
If you have the correct program installed in your computer the file will automatically open by itself on double-clicking on it and if not then move on to step 2.
Step 2:- Find another program
There are a number of programs that can be used for opening a GHO file, one of the most common programs for this purpose is Ghost disc image file.
Step 3:- Check the file type
If your file is still not opening then check the type of the file and make sure whether you have a correct program that can open that particular type of file format or not.
Step 4:- GET help from the developer
If you are not able to understand this process of opening a GHO file then in this case only a developer of that particular format most probably helps you in the best manner it can. Find the program and the related developer to it and contact them.
Step 5:- Find a universal file viewer
The easiest and comfortable way to open up a GHO file is to use a universal file viewer like (File magic), with the help of this viewer you can open many different b kinds of file formats.
How to convert a GHO file?
GHO files can be restored in your computer by the use of software that created the GHO file that is Ghost solution suite. You can not use a GHO file for the purpose of installation and to install an operating system. Even though an ISO file is used to install windows to a hard drive, you are not supposed to convert a GHO file into ISO file and hence you will not be able to install Windows or macOS, etc. rather than that if you want your GHO file to be present in the virtual PC virtual hard disc format you can convert you GHO file into VHD file format.
Still can’t open your file?
In a GHO file opener, before opening a file, it is very important to assure yourself by the fact that your file must end with the.GHO file extension. Some files use a similar file extension that makes it so easy to put another format into a dilemma with the Norton ghost backup file format.
For example, GHB files are the lego Ghost path files which at first glance might look to be somewhat related in some or the other way to GHO files. However, if you will try to open a GHB file with a Symantec program, it will not perform the command given by you or the task you expect from it to perform and the same is done in the reverse because the lego racers have nothing to do with Norton Ghost backup files.
If you actually are not having a GHO file, double-check the suffix at the end of your file and find out those letters or numbers to learn more about the program in which you need to view or convert it.
How to restore GHO image?
.GHO file format images are created by the original Ghost programs. The consumer version of Ghost was Cancelled after the release of ghost 2003. The consumer version of ghost is now sold as ”Ghost” in the consumer market. It is another program that is just reusing the ghost brand. So this, should not be taken as a version of Ghost at all, as it is entirely something else.
If you still have Ghost 2003, that is mostly what you used to produce the image. The CD of ghost 2003 must be bootable and allow you to restore the image. Also, I heard that the newer versions of the consumer product have replaced original ghost did include a windows version of an original ghost on their recovery CD’s clearly for the motive of restoring images that are taken with ghost 2003.
