Symantec Ghost doesn't show files

May 16, 2019 at 11:38:47
Specs: Windows 8.1 Ent, Core 2 Duo / 3 GB
I ran symantec ghost 11.0 as I have been using it so many times to restore a GHO backup from 500 GB's second partition to first partition. Ghost shows files for only first partition that is also a Windows / C drive. https://imgur.com/HFXc6L3 , https://imgur.com/7MEgdkE , https://imgur.com/tWKXmqJ , https://imgur.com/ewts3uH
As you can see it doesn't show 250 GB drive's files and it doesn't show an IDE drive https://imgur.com/Vxt2AY5
When I run Ghost32 from windows it shows all files. but I can't restore from windows because windows partition is my Target.
I need to restore. Kindly help.

You may try to copy the GHO backup files to another hard drive (D: or E:) and then chose the backup file from the drive D: or E: to restore to your drive C:.

ah okay, so are you saying, that your backup files (GHO) are stored on drive D: (1.2:[500-B] NTFS drive)?
If so, are these files shown, when your booted into Windows?

If so, have you used encrytion for the drives, except C:?

This is a shot in the dark but are your folder and file names longer than 8 characters? If so, try shortening them to 8 characters or less and see if that works.

Yes I realize the first pics show folders with long file names but try it anyway.

Since Ghost seems to be working from Windows, you could also take that drive over to a friend's computer then run Ghost from Windows and image the first partition.

No encryption for any drive. all drives are NTFS. I think eight months ago, it was working fine. all folders and files can be seen. I restored at that time.

@THX 1138
see https://imgur.com/7MEgdkE with long file names. anyway I try to take this drive to a different computer. It takes time.

Yes as I said I realize the picture showed long file names, try it anyway.

Once you get this sorted out I would suggest using a more up to date imaging software. Ghost hasn't been supported since Windows 7.

I would go with trvlr's suggestion of either Acronis True Image or Easus Partition Manager.

Again, are the GHO files shown in Windows at any drive?
