how do you rename a ghost file so that it will recognize the second file to finish the image? Thanks
Watch Question

There are all named in sequital order, ie ghost_image.001, ghost_image.002. You just have to make sure all the names are the same and the order is still the same. If you are having problems seeing the extensions goto explorer -> options -> View -> Hide Extension for known file types. Uncheck that, you should be able to see all the files, then just rename them all the same. A simple dos command should do the trick "ren ghost_image.* new_name.*".

If your first file is MYSPANND.GHO
the second :       MYSPA001.GHS
