norton ghost .fbf files
I'm trying to create an image and when I look at my external hard
drive it has a bunch of .fbf files. I assume these contain the backup
contents, isn't there a way to backup so everything is in a single
file. With trueimage 9 it is a single file.

Thanks,
Chris

I've never seen any .fbf files using Ghost (currently v.9), which version are you
using? AFAIK .fbf files are "file by file" backups which is claimed to be different
than image files. The claimed difference is that any sectors/corruption in a .fbf
file are the only parts that can't be restored, in an image file anything starting at
the corruption and after will be unrestorable or even the entire image may be
unusable.

Ghost has an option to specify a size to split backup/image files so they can be
spanned onto CDs and the such, by disabling the option any backup/image will be
created as one large file instead of split files.

Re: norton ghost .fbf files
It sounds like you selected a file backup instead of an image backup.
