I think that the main problem with "old" editions of operating systems (specially regarding the  Windows environment) is the availability for upgrading the hardware drivers, at the point that, nowadays, if you need a new motherboard/system, you are almost constrained to upgrade the operating system, too.

Just due to the above reasons, from my side it's since a long time I switched to Windows 10 PRO on most of my systems (even if using both Linux & Mac, too) and for system backups I currently use Macrium Reflect (for its reliability and simplicity), but also Terabyte tools, even though these last are under evaluation yet (for production environment), due to their stepped learning curve; anyway, I'm confident that Terabyte tools are more powerfull than Macrium Reflect ones (potentially, at least).

As per UEFI/MBR choice, I'll stay with MBR (until possible), having the feeling that it seems more "flexible" than UEFI, specially for multi-boot systems.

To use IFW in Simple Operations Mode. This will create Entire Drive backups...

    For the first backup

    Backup
    Select the drive to backup
    Select the partition to contain the backup
    Start


    For the second and subsequent backups

    Backup
    Select the drive to backup
    Start

Just in defense of an old friend, I have to report that I still use Ghost 11.5 to backup the C: partition on all ten of my PC's.  They range from XP on an Acer One Netbook, to Windows 10/Pro/64 on a desktop PC.
I also run Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 on various PC's.
And Ghost backs up them all.  It doesn't care what's there, it just backs it up.

I've been using Ghost since 1997, and I guess it's just too late to stop now.

Cheers mates!

Cool

Something New:
I didn't know where to put this, so here goes:

Just poking around the internet, I ran into a new 'Ghost' offering from Broadcom.com
It's called "Ghost 12.0.0.11379"  Copyright 2021, Broadcom Inc.

Well, I just had to take a look!
It came as an ISO, which I downloaded and burned to a 32GB Flash Drive.
It booted up my PC just fine, but came up with a screen with the bright Blue Windows in the center of an all black screen.
I sat there staring at that for a moment, wondering if my PC was booting up in Windows, or just what.
Then came up a screen like I've never seen before.  There was the old familiar Ghost 11.5 window, inside a blue frame, centered in a light blue screen.  It looked like Ghost was running in a Windows shell, or some such.  Weird!  But on the first screen of Ghost, it had all the ownership info as I noted in my opening paragraph.

So what gives?  Did Broadcom buy the rights to Ghost from Symantec?  Did they HiJack it?  Eh?

Well, it runs exactly like Ghost 11.5, and is workable with a mouse.  And is also customizable, just like the old Ghost, as long as it was run from a writable media.

So, I'm just wondering, if anyone else has seen this new Ghost yet?
RSVP!

I was under the impression that most people, including Symantec, had forgotten about Ghost but obviously not. I myself switched to TeraByte when I upgraded (?) Windows 7 to Windows 10.

RSVP?

I know I must have missed a few, but I've tried 'Almost' every backup program that has come down the road since 1997, when I was first introduced to Ghost.
Before 1997, I used the backup routines in "PC Tools".

And, I've never found one that will do what Ghost will do, and so simply too.
I've used it to back up every version of Windows since '98.  It also backs up Linux and 'Server'.
It even backs up a data drive, with no OS at all.

I did have to upgrade from Ghost 2003 to Ghost 11.5 to accommodate the NTFS drives.
And, since then I've picked up "Ghost Explorer" and "Ghost for Windows".

Now, after all these years, I have a revised version of Ghost, from Broadcom.com
It's exactly like Ghost 11.5, but in a different wrapper.

I don't know if it was supposed to be a Retail Software, because where I found it, I downloaded it and installed it for FREE.

I can't imagine that I'm not in a pretty good-sized Group, of Ghost users.

Cool

Maybe I'm the one who doesn't get around too much, testing different software and versions but I went from Ghost 2003, running from a floppy to Terabyte, running from a USB-stick.

What do you meen by RSVP?

Do you have a link to the Broadcom page?

This is a Yo Ho Ho version of ghost64.exe in a WinPE, extracted from Ghost Solution Suite 3.3. An Enterprise product.

Ghost 12 has been in GSS for about 6 years. And updated. It's not related to "Ghost 12" the home product. Ghost64.exe doesn't run in DOS.

Christer,
This might be what you asked for. 

OldCasper  Cool

Yes, thanks for the link. I assume that you need a valid license to run the software downloaded from there. Since I currently have a licence at Terabyte, these questions are mostly out of curiosity.

One last attemnpt - what do you mean by RSVP?

I have to guess--never know for sure--but this seems a likely interpretation:

Quote:
The abbreviation R.S.V.P. comes from the French phrase répondez s'il vous plaît, which means "please reply."


https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/RSVP

I think Old Casper was requesting a response to his posted information.

I think the more common usage of RSVP is  *to respond to an invitation*.

License?  What license?  Are you kidding, or just wanting to start a fight?

Just kidding.  I do have a lifetime lic. for Windows Utilities.  And, one for Super Anti-Spyware.
Two great programs that I don't like to be without, when running any OS.
Other than that, I do like using software that I can get and use for FREE.

And, it never ceases to amaze me, just how much software is out there, that is available for FREE.

Y'all have a great day now, Y'hear?

Casper Cool

PS:  My RSVP which I thought you would surely understand, was just an invitation for you to "Please respond to my post".  Originally RSVP was FRENCH, but has become in common use in the United States for longer than I've been alive.  Pardon moi!
