Hello everyone - best version of Ghost for Win 7 Pro?

Hello everyone and thanks for taking the time to look at this post.

Your advice is needed, pretty please!

I bought Ghost 9 a long time ago to legalise my old DOS version. Rad and me were of the same opinion that a static drive can be Ghosted accurately. Times change and I've recently used my old DOS version on my Win 7 Pro laptop, but it's a getting to be too long winded to get it Ghosted and to restore it for these old IT bones!

I'd like a suitable replacement and after a some searches on here I'm scratching my head and thinking someone would be able to put me out my misery!

Should I just go and get Northon Ghost 15?

Is there an upgrade path i.e. is it cheaper to upgrade to v15 than buy it again?

Some guff on what I back up, it's really very simple...

I run 32-bit Win 7 Pro on a Sony AW31 Laptop.

I've a newly grafted in, hence the Ghost I recently did, Drive C that's 100Gb and a Drive D thats 600Gb.

I've an external 1Tb USB drive - it's actually 2 x 1Tb mirrored.

I do my best to keep zero data on Drive C, so really it could be smaller but who cares theres loads of space available on Drive D.

I've a batch file I put together to run RoboCopy to copy new and modified files to my external USB drive.

My locally held Outlook emails are copied to a date and time directory structure on the external USB drive so I can easily get them back, cross fingers never needed to yet!

That recent Ghost to restore Drive C to a new larger drive would, I think, have been be a heap easier if I'd finally given in to Ghosting whilst the PC was active!

Your thoughts and suggestions greatly welcomed & thanks in advance for them too!

Norton Ghost is no more.  Sales were discontinued on April 30, 2013, but I suppose you may be able to find a copy in a store somewhere.  Your best bet is to upgrade to Symantec System Recovery 2013 Desktop Edition, or even use Windows 7 built-in imaging.

I prefer Image for Windows (TeraByte Unlimited). There is a 30 day trial here.

I like RoboCopy too. Would you mind posting your batch file?

Hello to SloPoke and Brian!

Many thanks for your replies.

How sad that Norton Ghost given up the Ghost!

Still at lease Peter made a few bob out of his unerase program that started the whole of his utilites software enterprise which Symantec bought from him. That unerase was a God send so thanks and good luck to Peter.

My old DOS version of Ghost put Win 7 Pro on my new HDD. However, I'll take a look at your kind suggestions too.

Cheers and have a great weekend / life!
