Norton Ghost for DOS is an IT admin favorite - it is pretty good at making images of filesystems, compressing them, deploying them, etc. But should you use it for recovery? No. Ghost will crash or abort when an error occurs (or can crash/abort even if you set it to ignore all errors), it doesn't do any recovery of unreadable sectors, and it rearranges the MFT. When you Ghost a drive using the default settings, it does not do a sector copy - instead it makes every file contiguous with no gaps of space between files and rewrites the MFT, which is the part that usually causes Windows systems to be unbootable after a Ghost (I'm referring to drives that are working fine). Ghost was not meant for recovery, so don't even bother with it for this purpose. For all other uses (imaging, deployment, etc), however, Ghost is just fine.

If the disk you have chosen is the system disk:
- A message will notify you that a restart is necessary: Click OK, and close all windows.
- Re-start the computer. The disk will be checked when the system boots.
