Thanks but I can't afford any new hardware and keeping Ghost 10 on my system seems counterproductive.

As Brian noted, Ghost 9 and Ghost 10 are very close in terms of capabilities and features.  You haven't lost hardly anything by just continuing with Ghost 9.

Were you taking "full independent backups" with Ghost 10?  The main difference with Ghost 10 is their Recovery Points, but for myself I just use the full independent backups.

Additionally Ghost 10 has more drivers included for newer motherboards, SATA drive, USB2 drivers, etc.  If you were hell-bent on solving this (don't blame you if you're not), you can open an incident with Symantec LiveChat and request a newer iso image of Ghost 10.  They will (after some haggling) give you a id/password that will let you download a newer version of Ghost 10.  Don't know why they don't include it on their Knowledge Base or website.


what I wanted was the ability to do daily incremental backups  rather than having to do a complete drive image every time but while still retaining a disaster recovery capability.

At this point though I'll just continue doing the full image and will likely never again consider a Symantec product. The company has been going downhill for many years now and now that support is basically gone its no longer worth the risk. The worst thing that ever happened to backup software was when the bought out Powerquest.

Again, thanks for all the efforts!

Wreckwriter, I doubt this will help, but Ghost 10 appears to be the last "Ghost" version by Symantec.  They have renamed it to "Norton Save and Restore", which is basically Ghost 11, and includes file/folder backups as well as image backups.

Agree with you about their (lack of) support.

Agree with you about buying out Powerquest.  I was a big fan of many versions (I may have had them all, I can't remember) of Drive Image.  Also PartitionMagic from Powerquest is/was still a great product.

I do this with Ghost 9.

The only hardware required is an optical "burner" (CD-RW or DVD-RW) of some kind to generate the BartPE-XPE (reatogo edition) CD to permit the ghost32.exe element of Norton Ghost 8.2 to
function much like Norton Ghost 2003 but in the Windows Preinstalled Environment instead of being DOS-dependent
. You have the option of using partitions within your MASTER HDD, a SLAVE HDD or an external HDD; Norton Ghost 10.0 does not contain the additional Ghost 8.2 elements that allow routing images to optical media.

Well, I searched all over the place for better solutions. I ended up trying Paragon backup. It worked well in Windows but their disaster recovery cd had no drivers for my RAID controller so it was pretty much useless.

In the end I went back to Ghost 9 and am safely backed up again. I really appreciate all the help I got here. You guys are truly THE source for Ghost help.
