Whether you can add, delete, or view an image file, or move files within an image file, depends on the version of Symantec Ghost that was used to create the image file. You can check the version of Symantec Ghost used to create your image file in the image file properties. Ghost Explorer cannot open a file created with a version of Symantec Ghost earlier than 3.0.
You can use Ghost Explorer to add files or directories from Windows Explorer to any image file that was created in Symantec Ghost version 6.0 or later. You can also delete files from any image file that was created in Symantec Ghost 5.1d or later. If you add a file or directory to an image file the original span split is preserved.
Ghost Explorer supports Windows cut-and-paste operations within image files. For example, you can copy, paste, move, delete, and add files to images. You can also use a drag-and-drop operation to move files from Windows Explorer to Ghost Explorer.
To avoid problems, you should avoid making the following types of changes to an image file:
Ghost Explorer prevents you from adding files to the root folder of Linux Ext2/3 partitions. If you add files, the new files are not visible when you restore the image, and the e2fsck tool reports errors.
