Norton Ghost 15.0
27 May 2010
Conclusion: Norton Ghost 15.0 is a mature and mostly impressive product, especially for combined file and drive-image backups, but silent omission of essential files makes it unpredictable for demanding users.
Pros: Provides both drive-image and file-based backup. Clear interface. Emergency CD includes anti-virus technology.
Cons: Some important files silently omitted from drive-image backups. Advanced options can be confusing.
Summary: Symantec Norton Ghost 15 is a powerful, extremely reliable imaging program, and its PE-based recovery CD usually works on the few machines where Linux-based recovery CDs do not. Its conversion of full backups to virtual machines is top-notch, as well. However, though we keep the program in our recovery toolbox, Symantec's recovery-CD restrictions mean that it will see use only when other products fail.
Excerpt: Version 15 of Norton Ghost does everything its predecessors could. With it, you can create backups of a disk or a partition and then use Ghost (or its bootable recovery disk) to restore your PC from those backups as the need arises. As you’d expect, not only can you make an image of an entire disk or partition, you can also make incremental and differential backups (backing up to an existing image only those things which have changed since the last time).
Summary: Das Datensicherungs-Programm „Norton Ghost“ erstellt Images Ihrer Festplatte und sichert Ihre Daten in Backups. Wie gut Sie mit der Software gegen einen plötzlichen Festplatten-Crash gerüstet sind, klärt der Test.
Pros: Schnelle Sicherung, Sicherung auch auf CD/DVD oder Blu-ray möglich
Cons: Teils unverständliche Meldungen, Programm braucht zum Laden einiger Funktionen sehr lange
