I just installed Norton Ghost 15. For Backup Schedules I first just selected to have teh two default ones setup which are the Total Backup and the Files and Folders Backup.
When I run the Files and Folders backup from my user login, which is setup as administrator at my desktop, does it include files and folders from all other users on the computer or do I need to setup a schedule inside each users environment?
Solved! Go to Solution.

I would forget File and folder Backup and just use Ghost for what it does best... imaging partitions.

Read it now. Makes sense. I was concerned about the backup space it will take to do file backups several times a week.
However, if I still want to do both, is the file and folders including all users files or only my own, i.e. in the user environment currently logged in and running Ghost?

Wait a minute. Spoke too soon.
Now I see. In Ghost 15.0 I just found the Recovery Point Browser. It actually allows you to see the complete recovery point as a directory and you can navigate to specific files and from there select to restore only those. Good. I think I will do only the compelte image from now on. :)

Yes, using Recovery Point Browser works great to open a v2i or iv2i file from any time. You can also right click the image file and mount it as a drive letter. Youi can then browse to the mounted drive and do what you want... copy files, run sme programs, etc.
