It's now April of 2023, and I'm still using Ghost to do my weekly backups, on all my Windows 11 PC's.

With a few improvements, it still works as good as the first time I tried it back in 1997, when I worked in a small PC shop, where we used Ghost on a 3.5" floppy disk to clone small and slow HD's to larger and faster HD's.  Cloning, is the first thing I ever did with Ghost.

On most of the computer forums, Macrium Reflect is just about the only program mentioned in regards to backing up hard drives.  But people seem to be having all sorts of problems with that program.
Anytime I mention Ghost, and how simple it is, I get Booed Down by the MR fanboys.

So, they just keep having their problems and I keep having my success.

Ain't life great?

Thanks for the update!

I myself abandonded Ghost a few years ago and started using TeraByte Image for Linux. It's operating system is Linux but it works fine on Windows installations.

Last week, I had a SSD-crash on my LapTop. Disconnected from the internet, I restored my clone (disk-to-disk) to the new SSD and was up and running within a couple of hours. The backup had been created in 2019 (version 1909 if memory serves me). I had the update to 22H2 downloaded as a preparation and it  updated the computer to current without a hitch. When I connected to the internet, a few other updates were automatically downloaded and I also had to update a few installed programs.

I don't understand all that nonsense about having to be fully updated to go from one version (in this case 1909) to the next. I took a shortcut to 22H2 and I believe that staying disconnected from the internet when doing the job is the key. Microsoft has no chance interfering ...  Roll Eyes ... until the deed is done.
