GHO file format is associated with Norton antivirus application. The GHO file format contains backup of the hard drive of computer.
The Norton Ghost software application saves the copy of the hard disk. This acts as a backup of the hard disk. The GHO file format is used to recover the corrupted or lost parts of the hard disk or the file in hard disk. The GHO are backup files and therefore are small in size as compared to all the content stored in hard disk. For the purpose of security the GHO files can also be encrypted and locked.
In addition to the problem described above, i.e. the lack of the appropriate application to support the .GHO file, there may be several reasons that cause problems with opening and operation of the data format:
A quite common problem is the lack of application in the appropriate version. Even if you have an application, with the help of which you should open the .GHO file, you may have a problem with it because of its version. Perhaps in previous versions the application has not yet supported the .GHO file, so download the update and check again.
If you have already installed the appropriate application, and it is the correct version, the file may not open correctly, because the operating system does not have information that this program supports the file. So you need to "show" which program the computer should use. To do this:
It also happens that the file you want to open is corrupt and therefore there is no such possibility. In this situation, you should find its different version, or ask a person from whom you got, to send it again.
