6-7-5] Symantec - Norton Ghost

(2002/01/27)

Platforms supported: Windows (95, NT, 2K, XP), OS/2
See http://www.symantec.com/sabu/ghost/ghost_personal/

multiple CD-Rs, and the backup set can be a bootable CD-ROM. Individual
files can be extracted from the .GHO image files from a Windows application.
