Rrickhd, also see the thread “Ghost 10 Rescue Disc causes reboot” (http://radified.com/cgi-bin/YaBB/YaBB.cgi?board=general;action=display;num=11282...) on this forum.  Note that the problem was solved by changing BIOS settings.

...And the first review of Ghost 10.0 has appeared:  see PC World's article "True Image 9 Edges Past Norton Ghost 10" at http://www.pcworld.com/reviews/article/0,aid,123202,00.asp.

Pleo,

How do you find these comparisons so quickly?

We have had a few complaints about Ghost 10 here but there are pages of complaints about Acronis TI 9 on the TI forum. From a stability aspect it's the worst version Acronis has released. There is a software update every week or so which fixes some problems and introduces others. On the other hand, people without a problem generally don't write to the forums.

The TI forum reminds me of the Walt Disney lemming movie. But I'm assured lemmings don't jump off cliffs.

I haven't seen TI 9 in action but I liked previous versions.

Hey, Brian, I didn’t say that I agreed with the review – only documented its existence.  Although I have never personally used True Image 9, I am amazed by the breadth and depth of customer complaints about this application, as you note.

The PC Magazine review, in my opinion, is shallow in so far as it only demonstrates that that the two products differ in the set of features provided.  This will, of course, be an accurate assessment for the comparison of any two products in the same domain.  The more important questions – not addressed in the review – are about delivering reliability (backup/restore), achieving stability (operating consistency) and minimizing resource consumption (performance/speed).

I know you didn't agree with the review Pleo. And I'd agree that these superficial reviews don't mean much anyway.

Does anyone know if Ghost 10 supports Dual Layer DVD. Possibly with use of something called a UDF packet? A support person at Acronis said that True Image 9 supports Dual layer DVD, but it requires pre-formatting the DVD with the UDF packet. How does this work?

Fred892,

I can't find an answer about dual layer DVD support.

Acronis TI requires you to buy extra software to write images direct to CD/DVD. Ghost 9 and 10 contain Gear software which writes variable length UDF packets to CD/DVD. Discs don't have to be pre-formatted.

An amusing followup on the TI 9/Ghost 10 review. It seems the author didn't even use TI 9.

Good grief!  A review that compares True Image 9 with Ghost 10 by an author who has never used the former and yet expresses his preference for it!

Could it be that the quality of the review of a product in PC World is related to the number of advertising dollars spent by the software manufacturer in the magazine?

For those who have just bought Ghost 10 and want to do their first backup, this is what I suggest.

Start Ghost 10
click Back Up Now
click Define New Backup
In the Easy Setup Window put a dot in Define a new custom backup. OK
click Next in the Define Backup Wizard
select the drive to backup. Next
put dot in Independent recovery point. Next
choose the location for the backup image. Next
Compression Standard (recommended). Tick verify. Untick Limit the number of ... Ignore Advanced if you don't need to split the image. Next
dot in Manually
tick Create Recovery point now
Finish
Performance slider to Fast


Now you can start learning to do Scheduled backups at your leisure.

Brian.......
You are a real gem for this info. I had spent about 6-7 hours trying to find out the error codes I was getting and then I happened on this web site and bingo your suggestion worked perfect. Backed up everything(not getting into image or clone or that stuff) in 3hours 15min to DVD-RW.  Don't have an external hard drive yet but was reading another post and I am going to get an enclosure and stick one of my spare drives into it if that is all it takes.

Thanks and my wife thanks you many times over.
