Some love it....some hate it.
Might want to drop over to NEWEGG and read buyer comments.
Personally I've used GHOST 2003 for years and to say it's served me well is an understatment. I also have True Image 9.0, an earlier version of True Image 6.0 (?) and Drive Image by Powerquest. I prefer hard disk to hard disk backup as it's fast, easy and I do it...then I back that up to an external HDD. True Image 9.0 and Drive Image 6.0 seemed slow compared to Ghost. The one thing Ghost 2003 didn't do was incremental backups. I'm also going to take a good look at NovaBackup from NovaStor which appears to do it all ... including incrementals and restores to clean hard disks and that's what I really look for ...getting back up and running from a crash or disk failure in the least amount of time. No searching for CDs, product keys and serial numbers for yours truly. Believe NovaBackup 7.3 has a trial version too so it might be worth looking at. I used it years ago with a tape drive and it worked great. Only thing is it didn't have the restore from scratch feature at that time and now it does.
Good Luck and let us know how it goes.
I downloaded the free trial of the 9.0. What I wish to use this for, is a complete backup of my hard drive, as I have read that Acronis True Image 9.0 is the one to use. When trying the free trial for acomplete backup of my hard drive, I ran into this problem, and have tried to perform the task four times with the same outcome. I hope you can help me with this problem, as I do wish to use the product. But, if I can not get it to work, it is no good to me. The build trial version 9.0 (build 2,337).
At pick a task, I select backup entire hard drive - create (the entire disk) - my C: Win XP - first time backup - entered name for full backup -
backup going to CD-RW drive E LITE-ON LTR-24102M 4DS7 - Backup Wizard create new full backup archive - use default options (I have also tried
the manually) - inserted blank Memorex CD-RW 700 mb (also have tried Imation and Maxell) goes to around 13%, then I receive Error (operation completed with errors, please see log for more details) Log details are, error module 1, code 502 (0x101F6), message = operation with partition ''C''
was terminated. Details: write error (ox70004) error writing the file. (0x40003). Below this is a other error, 100 - 5(0x640005) operation has
completed with errors. Also listed is, warning 100-11 (0x64000B) priority changed to low priority.
If you can help me resolve this problem, and I can perform the the task I require, I will purchase the product.
