Symantec Ghost Solution Suite Review

Good consumer product. Easy backup solution.

Valuable Features:

This is a good deployment or backup solution. It does a good job at imaging your computer for backup. Basically the consumer version of backup exec. It is easy to use for people who don't want to pay for carbonite. Restores are easy.

Room for Improvement:

It doesn't offer scripting or drive-spanning. Sometimes admins like myself need advanced tools for the few users who use this solution for their mobile computers.

Other Advice:

Great for personal use. Great value. Easy to use and schedule backups. Remote restore is useful, but not always successful.

Ghost is a very nice tool that helped me save large amounts of time in setting up new computers. From my point of view, Ghost is easy to use, reliable, stable and very useful. But compared with other similar products, for example Acronis and Clonezilla, it is more expensive and complicated.
