Help. I have been having a dilema. I have used Ghost for a long time. But now my ext USB HDD isn't working in the Ghost mode, although Ghost sees it fine in Windows. In the course of trying to resolve this, I learned a bit about Acronis. I d/l and installed 15 day trial of ATI 10. One thing I really like about Acronis is the creating a System Recovery Bootable CD. Did it quick and easy, that has always been a big frustration with Ghost. Also, the Recovery Partition sees my Ext USB HDD just fine. I did a backup and the image was created much quicker and also was much smaller than Ghost images. So I'm almost sold. Except, I am worried about reliability of the image. If push comes to shove, will the image REALLY restore properly. Some comments on the Ghost forum I was working on, (Radified), indicated that ATI may not be reliable. And people there felt they could trust Ghost more, and bottom line, that is what is most important. I'd welcome any comments to help me decide which one to trust my systems to.
