Ghost 9.0
Aug 16th, 2004 at 2:59pm
 
According to Symantec’s website, Norton Ghost 9.0 will be available in late August and is “enhanced with Drive Image technology”.  New key features include “hot imaging” and scheduled backups (both currently available with Drive Image 7) plus incremental backups.

What’s the buzz on Ghost 9.0?

Symantec bough Powerquest some time ago. They make Ghost biggest competitor, Drive Image, and also Partition Magic.

It appears Symantec has merged Drive Image with Ghost, as many speculated.

Seems they are making Ghost more of a BACK-UP product than the CLONING product it was initially designed for.

Not sure if I like the hot-image feature. It would always be safer to  image following a fresh reboot.

Incremental and scheduled back-ups might be nice, but there are many products that do this already. Cloning and imaging will remain Ghost's key features.

Symantec didn't update Ghost since 2002, when they released the current version, 2003. So this will be like Ghost 2005, which it sounds like they're calling 9.0

I looked at it and hurried to order Ghost 2003.  They have incorporated both the good and bad about Drive Image.   The bad being you need to install the 40Meg of Microsoft .Net stuff.    To me this is just lazy.   It allows them to do neat stuff in the GUI, but heck a lot of companies to this with out Microsoft .net.

Will Ghost 9.0 be included in SystemWorks Professional 2005 (as is currently the case with Ghost 2003 and SystemWorks Professional 2004) - or, will the user need to purchase the product separately?

P.S.:  By the way, I have been using Drive Image 7 for several months and, from my perspective, it is a vast improvement over the archaic Ghost 2003 for image backup.  I eagerly await Ghost 9.0!

I sent Symantec an email and asked about including Ghost v9/0 with NSW 2004/5 Pro. I'll post back when I hear from them.

Could someone refresh my memory what the difference is between Ghost 2003 as a standalone product vs. the Ghost that comes with Systemworks?  I know there's some limitation to the one that comes with Systemworks but I can't remember what it is.  Maybe it has something to do with it being able to write to NTFS partitions?

I'm 100% sure that I read there's a difference between the two.  Anybody?

There is only 1 difference.

That is the media.

Ghost CD = bootable ghost media with tools for troubleshooting and even capability of Ghosting.

NSW CD = requires bootable floppy with CD support to be able to be used for anything worthwile.
