    XP-Pro + GHOST Back-up in Norton System Works

    Anyone out there have any success using NORTONs GHOST (in Norton System Works 2002) for doing Back-ups to a CD/rw or any other media?
    Thanks, Jim

    I've not tried Ghost yet - at least the SysWorks 2002 version. Are you having specific problems?

    XP-Pro + GHOST Back-up in Norton SystemWorks2002

    Yes, The problem is that is is very poorly documentated and
    I have been unable to get it to work.
    I wonder if anyone else has succeeded in using GHOST.
    PS I use Win XP-Prof + Norton Systemworks 2002 so I have the latest stuff.
    Thanks Jim

    Yes. I ghost my operations and data partitions using Ghost 2002 to another hard disk. I use a boot disk with a bat file to open ghostpe.exe. My downloaded version demands a serial number with each use--annoying. I have not attempted to ghost to a CD-R yet.

    Yes - I have cloned both to hard drive and to CD-R with no troubles. The documentation is not good, but it is worth perservering with as it works well. I am not 100% sure on how to create a bootable CD-R though.

    thanks for the note -
    it may not make you feel any better but it always requires the serial number with each use, even when installed via CD

    Note that ghost will not see NTFS partitions when run under dos. I have a C: partion (NTFS) for WINXP files and "Program Files." Everything else goes on d: "data" (NTFS) in order to keep the c: image to a reasonable size. A third partition is formatted FAT32 called "vault" and it is where i store my ghost images. i keep at least three images so if i save an image of a bad configuration, i can always go back to the one before that. In ghostpe, "vault" comes up as the C: drive.
    for a "belt and suspenders" approch I periodically copy the ghost images and the important subdirectories from d: to my Linux box.
