I made an image with Norton Ghost V 8.2 with the boot disk I had created from Ghost on a previous installation. Norton Ghost was not yet installed on my computer. After reinstalling Ghost V8.2 using the identical program that created the boot disk, Ghost explorer does not recognize my image as a valid image file. However when I use the Ghost explorer file in Hirens boot V9.2 it reads the image file completely. Can someone explain this and tell me what I have to do to get the Ghost explorer I installed to read the image file.

I had the same problem with Ghost and also Acronis. Went to DriveImage XML by Runtime and it has restored flawlessly many times. Besides reliability, another good feature is that it is free.

I built my first BartPE Boot disk for this and while it took a while for me to read and study, it is really simple. The default boot disk already includes the plug-ins for DriveImage XML version 1.2. Not sure if the plug-ins are for the latest version but if they are not, they are very easy to add.
