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.

Ghost really works well, has never failed me, simple to use.
