1 out of 5 eggsDon't get it

Pros: I really like most Norton products and use NIS and their Utility program. This program doesn't cut it.

Cons: It does not work in Windows 8. I will not accept the license code, and it doubles the boot time . It messes up the Metro by pass programs too. Win 8 has been out for 8 months at this point which means developers have had it for well over a year! Hello.
The program is not supported, check their web site. Do you realize version 15 has been out for 3 years.
Come on now.

4 out of 5 eggsNice software but old and with some glitches

Pros: Works for making backups of a single computer. I have it making backups to a networked NAS device and it does that just fine. Compresses and encrypts (password protected) the data.

Cons: I've had to re-install the software a few times because it somehow loses a driver or something, making it unable to browse through the backup volumes. Reinstalling it makes it work.

The drive clone feature is clunky.
The rescue discs are old and missing many drivers needed for newer computers.

"Automatic" backup management based on storage space limits doesn't seem to work all the time so I have to manually manage the backups sometimes.

Other Thoughts: It works so I keep using it, but it's not the easiest to use.

1 out of 5 eggsNorton Ghost 15

Pros: Somehow my review was misplaced as a review of a free item that was included with this purchase, so I've recreated it here.
I've used Ghost 15 for 'Image Copies' on all of my Win 7 systems since it first came out and it's fast and does the job. My only problem is that 'Automatic Update' won't work. I commented on that in a review way back when I got my first copy.

I never use the 'Clone' nor 'File Backup' functions so I can't speak to those functions.

Cons: Unfortunantly I purchased this copy for use with Win 8 and as mentioned in other reviews, it won't work in Win 8.
Typically big name vendors have updates for their products for new OS releases immediately upon the release of the OS if there are incompatibilities. It appears that Symantec is'nt concerned that those of us that use their software are left on our own to come up with an alternant solution. Personally if I wanted to use another product for my backups I wouldn't have purchased Ghost to start with.

Other Thoughts: I have no dilusions that Symantec will ever offer a fix. In fact I doubt if they even offer a new version that will work with Win 8. I decided that after I noticed the way they treat this product on their Web Site, practically as if it's non-existant.

1 out of 5 eggsWill NOT CLONE Windows 7

Pros: Didn't find a Pro

Cons: Purchased because Symantec claimed they worked the bugs out of cloning Windows 7 over version 14, They DID NOT. I read the other comments on how to do the clone and they did not work. I called Symantec played with them for a wasted 2 hours, read 20 different Google results on Cloning Windows 7 with
Norton Ghost, they did not work - system still boots to MBR not found error.

Other Thoughts: Software that doesn't work as claimed should be refundable regardless of wether or not it is opened. How else am I going to find out if it works unless I open it. Wasted $50 on software that doesn't work.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat stuff!

Pros: Works very well with Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. The cold backup function is great to capture a non-booting system and retrieve data.

Cons: Will not run in Windows 8. It installs, but it won't accept the license key, and other errors prevent it from running.

Other Thoughts: Anxiously awaiting the next version of Norton Ghost that is Windows 8 compatible.

5 out of 5 eggsRecommended

Pros: Dependable. You can't go wrong with Ghost.

1 out of 5 eggsThis SW sucks

Pros: None

Cons: I bought a Samsung SSD drive and it came with Ghost. When I tried to copy my existing drive 500GB total with 200 GB used to a 256GB SSD drive ghost wouldn't let me do it. I contacted Symantec and their reply was to get a larger drive.

Other Thoughts: Symantec really has their head placed somewhere most of us don't like to go!!!!
