Symantec Ghost provides a way to create disk images from your existing computers, as well as the ability to load previously stored images and use them as the basis for building a new computer. When you create an image with Ghost, the program saves that file with the .GHO format. The Ghost program also gives you the ability to convert the GHO files you create into other formats like VHD.
