Notes about the GHS file extension:



Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The GHS 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.

Other applications associated with file type GHS:

  • Glider Pro (House File) by John CalhounA Macintosh game where you control a paper airplane as it flies through a house toward a destination you arenít quite sure of at first. The furniture of the house serves as obstacles to be maneuvered around; the vents in the floor blast out columns of air that keep your glider in the air. Since Casady & Greene Inc. went bankrupt, the rights to the game Glider have reverted to the author. Glider PRO and Glider 4.0 are now free. Glider PRO for Mac OS X does not have a house editor (it was never ported to OS X). The Mac OS 9 version is still the only way to create new Glider PRO houses. An old Windows version is also available in the downloads area on the author's website. This association is classified as Game.
