(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.

gho·sted (verb, intransitive)
Similar to bail, flake, ditch, or escape

1) To show up or make an appearance, but then leave suddenly and/or hastily without notice.

Similar to a 'flake,' but differs in that the person almost follows though only to ditch/bail shortly after. Generally associated with unreliable persons.

2) To leave hastily, generally without notice.
"Sorry I ghosted on you last night. I just didn't feel like being sociable."
"Dude, what happened to you yesterday? You totally ghosted out."

To ghost on someone: To disappear into the shadows or the crowd, to simply slide away unnoticed so that when whoever you're with turns their head around, you're long gone. Good for ditching unwanted company; Bums, Narcs, obnoxious acquaintances. Often involves using shadows, corners and roofs to speed your exit.
Damn, that boy just ghosted! He was here two seconds ago.

When a person uses some form of currency, such as promiscuity (females) or spending hard cash (males) to have intimate relations with a higher value individual, and then act surprised when the object of their desire chooses the low road and simply vanishes rather than make up lame excuses for slumming it with a lower value individual.
Woman1: Chad stopped calling and texting all of a sudden! He just vanished!

Woman2: I saw him with Zoe at the mall yesterday... girl, you got ghosted.
Man1: *cough* saw that coming *cough*
Man2: Yeah, but he could have broke it off like a man instead...
