(Past tense) Slang term in the IT world meaning to make an exact image of an entire hard drive, or one or more of its partitions, for the purpose of backup or large-scale setups such as computer labs. Also known as drive cloning, etc.
Tech 1: Fuck, dude, help me fix this server, I just knocked it off the table while it was running and now it won't detect the hard drive! If we don't get this up soon, the admin is going to fux0r us!
Tech 2: Calm down man, I ghosted the primary hard drive yesterday so I have a backup.
