Ghost Recovery Software Free Download
Imaging or "Ghost") programs such as Symantec Norton Ghost are often used to make identical or near-identical copies of a hard disk. This copy can then be used as a backup or to transfer a system onto another hard drive etc.
Incorrect operation and use of the Ghosting programs may lead to very serious consequences, as the data previously held on the hard disk that is to receive the image will often be completely overwritten. This is not always the case though, as sometimes the disk receiving the image may be considerably larger than the original disk. Ghosting to a disk of this type will almost certainly destroy the file system and root directory structure but some of the data that was previously on the hard disk may still be recoverable. Other problems exist too, such as Ghosting in the wrong direction, unexpected program termination or system crash due to program defects or problems on one or more hard disks (e.g. due to bad sectors, etc.)
Data recovery from Ghosted drives is often complicated and time-consuming. You frequently need to perform a considerable amount of analysis on a hard disk before you even know if the data is recoverable.
Instead, if you find some reliable ghost recovery software, things can be much easier. EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard is recommended as the most dependable ghost data recovery software for all brands of hard drives, such as Western Digital, Seagate, Maxtor, Samsung, Hitachi, Toshiba, etc.
