Default Disk imaging software.

I've decided to get a re-imaging software for a relatives pc since it's always infected with spyware and vundo. Since I'm not available at all times I've decided to get them a hd re-imaging software.

Just wondering if "corrupted images" still plague norton ghost?

Acronis is a VG alternative to ghost. With it, you can create a hidden partition on that PC to store the backups, so you dont have to worry about storing them someplace else.

My System Specs


I've been using Norton Ghost 14 with excellent results. No problems with corrupted images here and I tend to use them frequently on my testbed PC.

I haven't had problems with the current Ghost. Acronis also works well. Being a *nix user dd works well too
Obsolescence is just a lack of imagination.

For a bootable cd , linux based & easy to use, try Clonezilla. It can clone Windows & Linux partitions and best of all it's free.
