File Extension GHO

.GHO File

File extension: GHO
File type: Disk Image File


Notes about the GHO file extension:



To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps" and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.

The GHO file type is primarily associated with 'Ghost' by Symantec Corporation. Ghost image files are limited to legacy versions of DOS's maximum file size of 2GB. For a partition larger than 2 GB, Ghost splits the image file into two or more smaller files called segments or spans, so that each is 2GB or smaller. Ghost 6.5 Enterprise Edition and later, and Norton Ghost 2001 and later use this naming convention: FILENAME.GHO for the first file and FILENAME###.GHS for the remaining where ### starts at 001 and increments. The FILENAME might also be shortened to stay within the DOS 8.3 file naming format. Versions prior to Ghost 6.5 use the FILENAME.GHO for the first file and FILENAME.### (starting at 001) as following files.
