about Norton Ghost Jun 2011

2003 was the last version worth using. After that they put way too much effort into making scheduled backups and adding features in the windows app. The strongest point of Ghost was, you could easily load/create disk/partition images in a basic GUI environment without having to load windows first. That is essential if your OS is hosed.

This is a very nice alternative to Ghost and it works with newer computers and USB Hard Drives. I could be wrong but I believe this version has their Startup Recovery Manager. Which I have used on all the computers I've worked on.
