Hello,

I had files on a laptop that I wanted to pass over to a PC. The files are actually a course module that was downloaded from the internet which cannot be downloaded anymore.

I bought Norton Ghost and an external hard drive and copied the hard drive from the laptop on to my new external drive. The files copied successfully, but when I went to load them on to the desktop from the external hard drive(with the same Windows as the laptop win2000) the files will not work.

I thought the copied filed would be a replica, so how do I get the files to work?

Please help :tazz:

Could you please be more specific as to how the files do not work? Do you get an error? If so please post it.

do you still have ghost installed, without it being installed you can not open the files on the computer you want to restore the image onto, ghost has to be on the computer you want to restore the image onto, for instance you want to back up your computer with ghost, and you delete ghost after you have the backup, the backup is useless unless you reinstall ghost, because the file extension is in the ghost format.... hope this helps
