I'd like to know wether there are any good alternatives for backing up an entire partition. I've used Norton Ghost 7.0 (dos) version, but now that have new system, I'm using RAID-0 and my drives are SATA-II. Obviously it don't do the job anymore. I did manage to do a backup some how but when I wanted to do a recovery everything went terribly wrong.

I then bought Norton Ghost 9.0, which to my taste is too simple. I haven't figured out a way to make a bootable dvd that runs backup I've created scripted. Instead I have but the Ghost 9.0, wait for ages and do recovery manually.

I remember PowerQuest having a similar backup software, but correct me if I'm wrong symantec bought the company?

So what i'm looking for is some backup software that has more than a backup and recovery button.

Thanks in advance!

Powerquest Drive Image 7.0 was the last version before it switched over to Symantec (became Ghost 9.0). DriveImage was a lot more functional.
