To Obtain the most recent version 15.0.1.36526 (sp1): 1. Install in windows XP or newer 2. Execute LiveUpdate which will update installed version to sp1 3. Optionally burn a new recovery CD or create an iso file to create one later Pros: 1. Images/restores faster than either Acronis True Image Home 2010 or Paragon Hard Disk Manager Suite 2010 2. Ideal for imaging/restoration of an NTFS partition containg ONLY data (NOT and OS or mix of OS and data) 3. An image can be "mounted" and accessed (read-only) as another partition via the temporary user-assigned drive letter. Cons: 1. CONFUSING error message Error: EA730002 will have to be tolerated during restoration of a windows partition. Summary: 1. Based upon the excellent overall attention to detail/quality, it is my opinion that the decision to release sp1 with the flaw was made by a non-technical manager trying to meet tight deadlines. 2. Sp1 was released spring 2010 and I expect this issue to be resolved in sp2 which may be released soon.

We all know it is a matter of time before we have a problem with our computers. Hardware problem or virus, it is going to happen. This product takes all the stress out of it for me. I have this program running on every PC at my work and at my home. I have had to use it several times already. (Previous versions) mostly on my son's computer and it has worked perfectly.

Works well for full recovery.

I used Ghost to backup my system because I was using a custom install of Windows 7 (32 to 64-bit) and I might have needed to restore the original OS since I had an upgrade version of Win 7. All worked well and I have the complete backup to pull files from. Read More

Product Overview

Norton Ghost™ 15.0 protects your applications, settings, folders, files and everything else on your PC with professional grade backup and recovery. So you can quickly restore your PC and recover lost or damaged files.

Norton Ghost 15.0 lets you decide what gets backed up (full system or specific files and folders) and when (scheduled and event-based backups). Enhanced compression and incremental backups help minimize the amount of storage space needed. Encryption and error checking help ensure your data is safe. And new Windows® 7 Bitlocker™ support provides enhanced data protection with drive encryption and integrity checking.

Whether you need to restore individual files or your entire system, Norton Ghost 15.0 makes it easy. The Software Recovery Disk lets you start your computer and begin the recovery process even if your operating system won’t start. And new Cold Imaging lets you backup files without even installing Norton Ghost.

Norton Ghost 15.0 features advanced tools that take data protection to the next level. LightsOut Restore lets you install the Software Recovery Environment on your hard disk so you’ll always be ready to recover. And new Symantec ThreatCon integration provides added protection by automatically backing up your files when ThreatCon reaches a specified threat level.

Norton Ghost 15.0 is just as flexible when it comes to storage devices. You can backup to external hard drives, networked drives, recordable and rewritable CDs and DVDs and now even Blu-ray Disc. Backup up offsite? No problem! You can now copy recovery points to a FTP site for easier offsite backup management.

With so much of your life and work stored on your computer, backing it all up is now more important than ever. Get Norton Ghost 15.0 today…before it’s too late.
