I need a Ghost version running on Windows 10
Like many of you, I've supported Symantec for many years. I've also created backups of various systems (running on various older Windows versions) that I occasionally still reference. Unfortunately, since Ghost is no longer supported and even worse is incompatible with Windows 10, I feel totally abandoned. I've talked with tech support and after much discussion (seriously, it took a lot of time to wring it out of them) found out that anything that Symantec/Norton has for Windows 10 won't read my older backups. In other words, the file format has changed.
This might be solved in several ways. Symantec could put a product out that still performs all the Ghost functions using the original file format. Symantec could create a program that performed the read/restore functions of Ghost. Symantec could create a conversion program that changes the old file format to something that its newer backup programs can use. There may be other acceptable solutions.
But unless I'm mistaken, Symantec has badly screwed me over. I definitely expected more out of them. Why else would I have used Ghost for as long as I did.
How have you solved this problem, or have you just given up on your older backups? (Since Microsoft forced the Windows 10 upgrade on me, I simply don't have a spare computer to install Windows XP or 7. I also have never run a virtual system that I could run XP or 7 on and even if I did, I have no idea of how to configure one.)
