I installed Norton Ghost on a client computer and had to change the backup strategy a couple of months later. Ghost has old versions of the file backup "saved" in it's index, so deleting the actual backup files from the backup destination only frees up space but doesn't cause Ghost to re-backup the files. Ghost still thinks they are backed-up. Note, this is a file-by-file, not an image backup, so the removal of recovery points doesn't seem to have any effect.
I am trying to avoid a reinstall by simply removing all the old ghost backup indexes so it starts from scratch on the next backup. Thanks.
