How to Restore a V2i File

By Greyson Ferguson

A V2i file is the particular file format for a ghost file. A ghost file is an exact clone or copy of a different file or drive. The file is primarily used with Norton Ghost Recovery (by Symantec); however, there are other ghost file recovery and restore programs available on the market. One of these products will be required to restore any particular V2i file.

Step 1

Launch the Norton Ghost Recovery program or any other ghost recovery program you have. If you do not currently have one, you can download a trial version of "Ghost Recovery" from the link provided (see Resources).

Step 2

Select "Ghost Recovery" mode and then click "OK."

Step 3

Choose the location or the "V2i" file (or ghost file) and select "Find." Choose "OK" once the scan has completed

Select the V2i file you want by checking the box next to its name; then click "Export." This will recover the V2i file.
