Our office XP computer crashed this afternoon. I know that we had Norton Ghost doing regular backups on an external hard drive. My question is how do you restore from that backup?

PS. When I plug in the external drive into my own Windows 7 machine it has two folders: - 9c590f17be2ef53d13bb00be2a - Norton Backups

I can't open the first one (it says I don't have permissions) but the second one contains a bunch of files with the .v2i extension.

Any help would be appreciated?

Have you read the Ghost manual/help file, that should detail backup as well as restore procedures? Do you have a bootable Ghost recovery disc? –  Karan Oct 17 '12 at 20:35
    
No, I don't have any bootable discs. I'm simply helping my colleagues to restore their system. (And I don't think they have any bootable discs either.) –  Den Oct 17 '12 at 20:49
    
You might be able to create one then via a fresh Ghost install on another PC, or manually using WinPE/PartPE etc. –  Karan Oct 17 '12 at 20:59
