Hi, after numerous attempts at trying to update ghost (Symantec's site) and reinstalling...I have given up!

Does anyone know where I can get these files to replace (needed for ver. 793)


Ghost.exe, GhostWalker.exe, GDisk.exe, Ghwrap.exe, and Ghreboot.exe


Thanks much,

Alan

Phone support...from Symantec...you must be joking?! (Maybe if I was a corporate account with recent software)

Hi alan.
What you are looking for (build 793), norton calls "update 3". It mainly addresses sata drives.
As recent as feb. of this year, it was still available from symantecs archive.
Have you been to the link below?

How to obtain the programs updates that are archived on Symantec LiveUpdate server

You may also be interested in this thread and this one as well.
FWIW, I have Ghost 2003 (aka 8) build 793 on disk but "Ghwrap.exe" is not available as I belive it is created after ghost is installed. 2003 was the last good version of ghost there was. 9 and above went down hill. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the reply...I have jumped through all the hoops and for whatever reason, the update will not connect and slows the computer to a snails pace after attempts.
Sites that have offered the files no longer exist...and anything you get from notorious sites has a trojan or malware of some sort.

I downloaded the new LiveUpdate and the archive file request. Started the update process and selected archives...and it hangs and bogs down the other processes.

Symantec always seems to over complicate...all I need are the updated executables.

In the meantime...I am using this freeware.

It runs in XP and takes 90 min. to complete...but it works!

HitSquad,
Some how I acquired the nickname "Big Al" at different jobs in the mid-west.
I'm not big, not Italian, not mafia, (I did live in Chicago for many years).

I guess it's something or someone that people will never forget.

That's funny. All the above applies to myself as well. :flowers:
Glad to hear you found something you can live with, at least for now anyways.
I've swithched over to Acronis TI a couple years ago and it's been outstanding, but not free.
Hopefully it won't go the way that Ghost did. (fingers crossed). :thumbsup:

Keep in mind that BETA is not a final release and can still be buggy. They're using you as a guinea pig before releasing it for sale. I wouldn't use it for anything that you are not afraid to lose

No problems with 1st time cloning. It runs at boot-up and takes about half and hour.
