Did your computer fail to open a GHO file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .GHO files.
What is a GHO file?
Files that contain the .gho file extension normally hold Norton Ghost files. These GHO files contain "snapshots" of a user's hard drive.
The Norton Ghost application is used by users to save an exact copy of the user's drive into the GHO file format. This GHO file can then be used to restore the hard drive or individual files that were on the hard drive if the hard drive or the data on the drive becomes lost or corrupt.
If a user does not want to have an exact replica of their computer contents accessible in an unlocked file, the user can encrypt the GHO files for added security.
