    Best backup and restore software!

    Greetings,

    Can anyone recommend me good and reliable backup and restore application to do daily tasks like:

    1) Incremental backup, daily backup, full backup
    2) Backup whole system (Windows).
    3) Restore Windows when it's not loading.

    I found Norton Ghost. Is it any good?

    Thanks!

    Acronis is decent if hardware compatible, or Symantec LiveState.

    I use Norton Ghost to periodically take a snap shot of my hard drive, and use Pico Backup (and a modified version I run for remote backups).

    Norton ghost can run from bootable floppy, bootable CD, even a bootable USB memory stick. So yes it is easy to restore a "snapshot" provided its on the same hardware. Using drive images can become tricky if you need to restore onto a new machine and its hardware is different from the original.

    I use IBM's rescue and recovery, not sure if you can buy it or if it's only for IBM systems.

    I've also used Norton Ghost and definitely recommend it.
