Re: Ghost 14: Clearing the status graph

I haven't seen the picture yet, but I think this is what you want to know...

This will wipe all of the history and schedules...

Open services.msc and stop the Norton Ghost service.

Windows 7 \ Vista:

Using Windows Explorer search and delete all .pq* files in:

C:\ProgramData\Symantec\Norton Ghost\History

and

C:\ProgramData\Symantec\Norton Ghost\Schedule

XP:

Using Windows Explorer search and delete all .pq* files in:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\Norton Ghost\History

and

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\Norton Ghost\Schedule

Now restart the Norton Ghost service. You will have to reconfigure your backup schedules.

Re: Ghost 14: Clearing the status graph

I followed the instructions but I still have a non-existent recovery destination listed for my drive D.  There are no recovery points at that location.  I have checked the drive and can find nothing on it that appears to be related to Ghost.  Is the pointer for this location listed somewhere else?  Can I delete it manually?  As stated at the outset, I followed your instructions.  After I finished my just created recovery points were no longer listed, but the D recovery destination still was.  I am backing up all my drives again.  I actually have Ghost 15.0.1.36526
