    Symantec Ghost... Help

    hey, I am trying to get into using Ghost to create images of my drive so i can reformat every couple months without it being a pain. I am having a very difficult time figuring out ghost. It is probably the least user friendly program i have ever used.

    if anyone knows of any tutorials on getting it going or can help me i would really appreciate it.....

    We used Ghost 9.0 @ my workplace and found that the older version were a lot more intuitive and a lot more productive.

    We had some 35 machines that needed to be formatted and WinXP pro needed to be installed. I took Acronis TrueImage and installed the OS on all those machines in less than 3 hours, it took about 40 mins to create the image, and then about 5 mins to deploy the image to all the PC's. It took so long only b/c I had a 8 port KVM, and switching computers constantly.

    TrueImage is by far the best imaging software on the market. I now use it at home to do EXACTLY what you want to do... install windows every so often. I reinstall my OS every 2 months or so. It keeps my PC clean and smooth. you can get the trial at their site http://www.acronis.com
