not talking about their imaging, but their backup

how is that differant the the xp restore points?

according to everything I've read, norton go back is not as good as xp's system restore and is more invasive

I hooked up some imaging here at work and I am wondering if I should turn off norton go back, leave system restore for convenience, and just create a new image every week or so


there are three hardrives

use restore on "c"

use go back on a second internal hardrive ("d)"

use "f" (external seagate) for weekly image

XP system restore on.
Weekly image to an external drive that is stored someplace fire/water proof.
Automatic daily data backup to another HD on the network.

Man the symantec site is sure short on details on what thier products actually do. Still researching.

Backup is supposed to be much easier to use than Ghost 10 and more flexible allowing you to omit files and folders.

My 2 cents for what it is worth!

I have never bothered to install Go Back (which normally comes with my yearly Christmas present from my daughter of the latest years' System Works). So I have never used it and can not comment on it! I have used Ghost 9.0 with good results - but used it strictly as an imaging for backups on an external HDD!

I have just recently learned of Norton Save and Restore which I have never heard of until you got me looking @ Go Back and Ghost! Actually looks like something that might do it all - but I have no experience with it! They do compare Save and Restore to Ghost 10.0 in the link I provided. I hope this proves helpful to ya!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
