what if it ruins the working system during the test?

Well, testing should not be done on a system that is *mission critical*--once you know the routine works, before you *go live* with the system--then place it *in service*!

You said you have been using Ghost 2003 for some time, and you were looking for a *new* way to create backups--I would assume you can use the same backup routine with Ghost that you have used in the past to create a backup image of the system HDD that can simply be restored if your testing efforts do not go as planned.

Peach, couldn’t have said it better than NightOwl:  ”Ghost 10 is very reliable--for most folks--most of the time--just as Ghost 2003 is--for most folks--most of the time!”

To help alleviate your concern that the “Achilles heel [of Ghost 10] though is it runs from and during Windows,” you may wish to review this thread.  I certainly agree with your perspective that “trust is earned,” and in the early days of Drive Image 7/Ghost 9, there was some natural human apprehension about the technology.  I think the world has moved beyond that conversation, and those days are well behind us.  Today, Ghost 9/Ghost 10 has earned a reputation as a stable, reliable and robust solution.  It seems to me, at least, that this issue has faded into the pages of history.

It was an interesting point.  I realize that there are occasions where 2003 let someone down, and that nothing is bullet proof, and, it was on point for comparing the reliability - that they compare evenly.

That does help a lot.  I have some more time today, and expect to do some test runs (of 10).  Thanks again everyone.

Peach, what solution did you choose to implement?  What did you learn that you can share with the forum community?
