How to Mount a .GHO as a Drive

Norton Ghost, which is now owned by the Symantec Corporation, is a utility application primarily used for backing up computer data. When you back up your system's hard drive with Norton Ghost, the software creates a single file with a .gho extension. The only way to mount GHO files and manage the data on them is to use the Ghost Explorer tool that is included with Norton Ghost.
