After 5 yrs of use, I am going to reinstall Windows XP. I use Norton Ghost 10 to backup files. If I reinstall Ghost, will the program recognize and restore my old backup files? Or will I have to discard all backups and start over?

I don't see why the same version of the application would not recognize the files it created. Applications are often uninstalled and reinstalled due to a variety of issues. Unless someone knows something I don't, I don't see an issue here.
