I'm not very sure of Norton Ghost with SATA ... one of my friends had a bad experience using Ghost on his SATA drive

He now uses True image http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/trueimage

it is said to be compatible with SATA

give it a try buddy
palavra
thanks
i will try it
but i am very anxious

because when the last time i used norton

it broke the windows

and left the computer in MS-DOS mode

i took the hard disk

connected to another computer

made re-partition

i don't want to do all this things again

i prefer this kind of programs to save time
each time i don't want to waste my time installing windows and other programs


i started to use acronis

i think it is better than the norton ghost

no problem with SATA

thanks to all friends

thanks for queueing me in about Acronis TrueImage -
i've been using Norton Ghost (no problems on my SATA Raid) -
but if you all agree that TrueImage is better, i think i'll give it a shot.

has anyone compared the two speed-wise? what about size of image (if compression is set to "fast")?
also, does TrueImage break up the image in 2Gb portions like Ghost does?

i couln't see a remarkable speed-diffrence

but acronis is a little bit faster than norton ghost


Acronis does not break up image

it is a full and one file

my image:
acronis:5.5 gb
norton:2+2+1.5

There are many versions of Norton Ghost. Try using the "professional" one, that doesn't have an "easy to use" interface. That's the one I use, as if you need to send the same file to many computers, it lets you do that, and automatically configures each one differently (IP, etc.) so there's no collisioins.
Cheers.

thanks, palavra, for answering my questions.
i'm always on the lookout for something better.
i don't agree with the saying "if it aint broke, don't fix it" -
sure, ghost has been working for me the past two to three years, but if there's something better out there, i'm not the one to hesitate to try it out.

i had been use norton ghost into my SATA HardDisk,
i want to create a backup, and it restarted my computer into dos, after some boot screen,,, the program become hanged, that took me to install my computer again,. T_T"
JoseRizal
just tried trueimage, as per the recommendation of the good people of this thread.
took a while to get a boot cd - i was encountering errors like "drive in use", etc.
then once i got the boot cd, the two "full versions(?)" options wouldn't work on my sata raid0. i ended up using the "safe mode version" and everything worked well.
i like the "single file output".
thanks once again to everyone!

never encoutered any problem with my SATA drives so far. But i prefer creating images using a norton bootup ghost disk. Just do it all through DOS.

In the later versions of ghost, all the backup can be done through Windows directly. If i am not mistaken, norton 2005 upwards make image backups via windows without having to boot into DOS anymore.

Razz I've use norton ghost always, no problem

yeah... it is really working with SATA HDD, i am using Norton ghost 2003, u can clone hard disk or one partion....
holan
I'm using Acronis true image too.
It's very good
JoseRizal
the one advantage i readily saw that trueimage has over norton is that norton ghost would break up the image into 2Gb files (unless there's a way to configure it to not do that?)

trueimage allows you to set the break up point, as well, so you can fit the image on multiple dvdrs.

i haven't tried a restore using truimage yet, but for now i can say that it's my image-maker of choice.

I have been using Norton Ghost for several years now.

I am sure TrueImage must have some real good features to attract so many positive feedbacks.

Here are some features I use Norton Ghost for

1. I can boot from a CD-ROM on my NB (also my 2 other PCs) to connect to my LAN server, and Ghost my partitions image into my LAN server disk.

2. I can do this using a DOS batch file, which automates the deletion of old image files and then create the new images.

3. I can then take my time to burn bootable DVD with the images, even for spanning multiple DVDs (All my images are segmented for 640 MB, as prior to DVD, I use CD-RW for restoration).

4. I have restore on several occasions using the bootable DVD/CD.

This is possible only if you have a Win Server to save the Ghost image files and to burn the DVDs.

Hope this will trigger some new innovation ideas.
