Having problems with your Symantec Norton Ghost 2003 for PC ?

Reformatted computer, found files with GHS & GHO,how to recover?

\015 I reformatted my computer, i saved all my files in Local Disk (D:), a former computer technician said it won't be deleted or harmed any way while it was reformatted.my files are still there but with .GHO and .GHS extensions.. and i can't open it. I know that I needed a Norton Ghost to open it, can a trial version recover those files? How? If not, is there any other way to recover my files?please help me. thank you.\015

Yes! You are right! Nowadays, the\012formatting process will not actually erase everything contained on a PC hard\012drive immediately as we think. The deleted files are still there and become\012invisible. So, just act carefully to get these contained files back:
\012\0121. Stop using this PC right now in case\012that any new file on it may overwrite your wanted files.
\012\0122. Download a PC data recovery freeware to retrieve all your lost files back.
\012\012In fact, there are plenty of data recovery\012programs available online. But, not all of them can work as efficiently as you\012think. So, you should pay attention to select a proper one for your data.
\012\012If you still have no idea, you can firstly\012try a PC data recovery freeware online that can work much more efficiently than\012some paid ones:
\012\012http://www.freeware-fix.blogspot.com/2013/02/data-recovery-for-pc.html
\012\012

\012\0124. Save or back up all the restored data on\012another drive in case of any data loss.
\012\012Next time, you should be much more careful\012about your data and always back up everything important well.
