001 file icon: 001 filetype icon

The 001 file extension is associated with Norton Ghost and used for Ghost backup images.

Ghost image files are limited to legacy versions of DOS's maximum file size of 2GB. For a partition larger than 2 GB, Ghost splits the image file into two or more smaller files called segments or spans, so that each is 2GB or smaller.

Ghost 6.5 Enterprise Edition and later, and Norton Ghost 2001 and later use this naming convention: FILENAME.GHO for the first file and FILENAME##.GHS for the remaining where ## starts at 001 and increments.

The FILENAME might also be shortened to stay within the DOS 8.3 file naming format. Versions prior to Ghost 6.5 use the FILENAME.GHO for the first file and FILENAME.## (starting at 001) as following files.

The 001 file extension is also associated with Drive Image 5, a disk cloning and backup utility for windows, developed by PowerQuest. The 001 files are used for installation purposes. PowerQuest was later acquired by Symantec and the Drive Image application became the basis for Norton Ghost.
