(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.

Ghosted is when you sneak up on a group of people and take one of them out without them realizing it till after the fact they are missing, no sound was made or sign of how the victim was taken out, you hide in the shadows.
In MMO's or shooter games, when playing a rogue or ninja type class or in shooters, you snipe, knife, or do a takedown, you sneak up and burn down a player right behind the victim's group and they didn't even notice.
I just ghosted this noob and his group didn't see me and now they spreading out looking for me.

verb, ghost-ed
1. To have your bedroom become decorated with kleenex stye-ghosts, office-ghosts, snowmen-ghosts or other ghosts of varying thematics.
2. To be honored mischieviously while bedroom has been left unoccupied
3. To have a current condition or obsession be highlighted by craft ghosts

From the Old English gast meaning "soul, spirit, life, breath,"
(cf. O.S. gest, O.Fris. jest, M.Du. gheest, Ger. Geist "spirit, ghost"), from PIE base *ghois- "to be excited, frightened" (cf. Skt. hedah "wrath;" Avestan zaesha- "horrible, frightful;" Goth. usgaisjan, O.E. gæstan "to frighten"). This was the usual W.Gmc. word for "supernatural being," and the primary sense seems to have been connected to the idea of "to wound, tear, pull to pieces."
Becca, you are SO getting ghosted when you go to work tonight!

Guys, lets stye-ghost Allison.

That was such a good prank, better than the ghosts!

Lets put this Dwight ghost on her door so when she opens it it jumps in her face!

Could you hold this chair steady? I'm having some trouble with my ghosting.

When you are experiencing something that no one else in the room does - only you.
Person 1: "Is there a draft in here?"
Person 2: "Nah man...I think you're just ghosted"
