Norton Ghost 2001

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.customize (More info?)

In 2002 I bought Norton Ghost 2001. I have been told that it will not
restore a clone of XP. Is this true? I was just about to use it.

    If it's Version is lower than Ver 7 it's my understanding that it won't
    work.

    You would be correct. IIRC, 2001 is version 5.

    Thank you.

    That settles it once and for all.

    I hope that you have learned not to buy any program that is prefixed
    'Norton'.. if you want a good cloning program, obtain Acronis TrueImage..

    Norton Ghost 2001 WILL not image the machine if the drive to be imaged is
    formated as NTFS. It will image the drive if it is formated as fat32.
    However most people have it formated as NTFS and in that case you would need
    ghost 2002 or later.
    I prefer Ghost 2003.

    You read my mind, Michael... I use it and love it. I stopped using DI7
    because it didn't support SATA (well it did, but it was very flaky) and I
    wouldn't use Ghost 9 if I was given it. Bought the TI/Disk Director bundle
    about four months ago, and I've had zero issues. The bootable CD it creates
    even recognised the SATA RAID immediately - without the need for and
    additional driver!

    I use "Norton" Ghost 9 and I must say that it works alright on my system.

    Each to their own I say.
