Out of pure curiosity, I purchased this product, that was less expensive and free shipping, and I purchased the more expensive offering from the same vendor that had a $4 S/H. Both are identical except this one came in a smaller box. Why? Don't care, both are good prices, just oddly priced.
Norton Ghost - very helpful6/20/2013
This product was perfect for my needs - cloning a hard drive to replace a failing drive.
I have used the earlie version for years, The new one works jsut as good as the old ones. Great Product
About 3 years ago I Installed Ghost (bundled with other Norton products) & within 2 days my PC crashed. The tech shop I took it to for a recovery said Ghost is known for problems it causes & is a "buggy" program at best. Granted, it's been 3 years, but I still have a bad taste & a $100 lighter wallet from using this program. Moral of the story - be vewy vewy wary of Ghosts...
Messed up my PC6/27/2011
Would not install properly on my Windows XP. Requied a version of Net Frames not on my PC. After giving up, errors kept occurring. Had to totally reinstall Windows from scratch.
Doesn't work out of the box!3/15/2011
Norton Ghost 15.0 loaded this software and as soon as I tried to run it, it gave me and error and said I didn't have permission to run this program. Notified Symantec and they sent me an email telling me how to fix the problem. Followed their instructions and it still doesn't work. Am currently still trying to get Symantec to straighten it out!
Not for Windows 73/7/2011
I spent many hours last year with Symantec/Norton support from India. They had a full remote access to my Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit machine, and were unable to make Ghost 15 to work. After multiple remote installs and uninstalls I gave up. They had no solution, and I found a Microsoft KB listing Ghost 15 as not compatible with Windows 7. I have used earlier versions of Ghost, and they were superb.
Poor installation, OK after that12/18/2010
Been using this product line for about 20 years, since the PowerQuest days. Needed to upgrade for Win 7, so bought Ghost 15.x. It failed to install on a new Win 7 PC. Tech support had to remotely and manually fix a path in the Registry. Problem resolved but there should not have been one at all. Norton has overloaded the user interface; it takes too many clicks to get to where you want to go, which is: Back up the dang drive! At least they are maintaining backward compatibility with images from previous versions; otherwise I'd switch to another backup software.
Norton Ghost - A must have for me.9/13/2010
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.8/24/2010
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.
Ghost 15 (126.96.36.199659) Install CD6/7/2010
To Obtain the most recent version 188.8.131.52526 (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.
