Norton Ghost 15.0
8 February 2011
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.
