How close is this to what you see in Ghost 9 & 10?

My C drive contains 16 gigs of data (30 gig partition).

The total image files = 11 gigs.

That's decent compression.

Here's the files in my image storage folder (totaling 11 gigs):

...

the top folder shown contains 90 MB of "File Backup Data"

I like that they call (label) them "Image files"

Wink  I never use my computer when Ghost is doing a recovery image - somewhere I read that you should not.

Ghost 12 looks much like Ghost 10 looking at all your files.

Good work

Edited:
Rad edit - I normally don't do anything while creating images either. But I wanted to grab these screenshots. So I needed open Photoshop, IE7 browser & CuteFTP to up the files. Next time I'll do a fresh reboot & image + nothing else.

Just a simple question, how do you restore the My Documents Backup?

Last night, I recovered my computer using backup that was created three days ago and the last My Documents backup running one days ago. My Documents folder is in C:\user\rulirahm.

BTW, just like Ghost 10, after recovering, Ghost 12 can't indentified its previous backup files. So we must define a new backup for drive C  Sad

Rad, very nice thread - and thanks for capturing and posting the screen images!

You may wish to configure several Norton Ghost 12 settings to meet your preferences.  Personally, I use the high level of encryption (AES 256), high level of compression, and I have the application verify the recovery point automatically after creation (all in Norton Ghost 10).

Have you checked that you can boot into the recovery environment okay, and that it recognizes the hard disk drive containing your recovery points?

Have you done a test restore yet?

I had a lot of problems with ghost 12. See my thread. I noticed on your install the drivers validation screen appeared. This did not appear when I installed ghost 12. I used the download file from Symantec which I downloaded twice.

Looking at Reply #15 above, it appears "My Documents" arer backed-up separately, and it seems this data is stored in a separate folder.

Yes, I have verified I can boot into Recovery environment & can see the external drive where my image is stored.

No, haven't done a test-restore.

Since you have chosen to engage the latest lineal descendant of PowerQuest Drive Image 7.n, perhaps you should construct a "defense-in-depth" prior to actually performing a test-restore (as we Southerners say, 'It's sorta' like wearing both a belt and suspenders on the same pair of trousers.').  I strongly advocate the "(whole)disk-to-image" legacy Norton Ghost Backup procedure with its concomitant "image-to-disk" legacy Ghost Restore whenever employing the "cold-imaging" Norton Ghost Ver 8.2 inside the Windows XP Preinstallation Environment.

Boot up whatever relevant Norton/Symantec installation CD you have on hand to immediately engage the legacy Backup/Restore "cold-imaging" procedures by following the path
'Recover > Recover Data on My Computer > Recover using a legacy Ghost image'
and create a "disk-to-image" legacy Norton Ghost Backup image to reside anywhere else other than on the MASTER HDD.  At this point an Integrity Check on the legacy Ghost Backup image would be prudent as it would instill a high confidence level before performing the "acid-test" of a Norton Ghost 12 test-restore.
