    I have Norton ghost 2002 and because it is fully dos based it says it has a problem backing up an image to a NTFS drive.You have to backup to a fat32 drive/partition so that it will be recignised in dos boot mode to load back on your formated NTFS drive/partition.
    Has anyone used other apps that are fully NTFS compatibile?
    I have heard of one mentioned before but the results are said to be not always 100% accurite,which kind of defeats the purpose.

    Yes .
    The UK Magazine PC Answers has just given away "Acronis TruImage"
    I had tried Ghost / Drive Image and they do not work with SCSI CDRW and USB connected H/d.
    Acronus program works on all types of file systems inc NTFS and it images in Windows without a reboot !

    Norton Ghost 2003 is capable of writing to a NTFS partition.
