to get any meaningful technical information from press releases. These are written by Sales Dept. hacks and, as Dilbert has frequently pointed out, may be unrelated to the true technical aspects of the program.
The following is from the Ghost 10.0 manual, and is essentially the full text of the section What?s new in Norton Ghost (my underlining):
?Norton Ghost 10 includes many enhancements and new features.
?If you are familiar with earlier versions of Norton Ghost, review the readme file for information about changes in product terminology. For example, image files are now referred to as recovery points.?
So, all they have done is change terminology and advertise it as a great new feature. If I were to ghost my F partition to a DVD today, how would I label it? D Image 050919 of course ? that is what it is, not a Go Back type recovery point.
I have not thoroughly perused the new readme file, but from the above quote, it sounds as if most new features are mainly renamed old features. One exception may be that incremental backups can now be continued for a baseline image even after an unexpected shutdown, as in case of a power failure or hard reboot. I haven?t analyzed this feature yet.
At this time, I am still planning on True Image for my next installation.
Hope this helps
