Ghost or Drive Image 7

  MIKE 15:34 10 Dec 2003

Hi Guys this may seem a rather foolish question but considering both these programes are sold by Symantec. Could anyone tell me the difference between the two and is one better than the other, as they seem to to be very similar in what they do.

Symantec makes Ghost; I think that PowerQuest makes Drive Image (or used to...).

I use Ghost a lot and like it a lot - others swear by DriveImage... one is much the same as another I believe.

Diodorus Siculus thanks for your prompt reply I used Ghost while doing an A+ course found it vey good. But I was following a thread on this site regarding burning CDR's to do a back up and Drive Image was mentioned as a prefered choice. I think I will stick to Ghost. Again many thanks

I use Drive Image and hae used Ghost.

But Driveimage is much easier for home users, although as a back-up methord for my customers I use Norton Ghost.

Thanks Gaz for your help. Don't worry about any spelling mistakes I can't read any way.

Symantec bought Powerquest about 6 weeks ago or more - from what I read PM and DI might in future figure in their Utilities packages.

leo49 - I am not sure if that is good or bad news! Powerquest seemed to do things pretty well on their own - but symantec have a good reputation too. I consider both Partition Magic and Ghost as essential pieces of software - I hope that they both continue to be stand alone packages rather than become integrated into some form of all singing, all dancing Norton SystemWorks.
