    Watch out Acronis TI 9.0.0.2270 Beta...


    Symantec on Tuesday launched Ghost 10.0, the next edition of its end-user image-based backup and restore software.
    Norton Ghost 10.0 debuts a Windows System Restore-esque recovery point capability that lets users set event-triggered recovery points -- backups that are a snapshot of the drive at a particular time -- and also reconcile recovery points to save storage space.

    In addition, Ghost's new reconciliation function lets users continue to make incremental backups -- available in previous versions of the software -- even when the PC's status has changed because of an unexpected hard boot or power failure.

    Ghost 10.0 supports 128-, 192- and 256-bit AES encryption strengths, shows the backup and recovery status for all drives on a system, and works with CDR/RW and DVD+R/RW drives, USB- and FireWire-connected backup, and Iomega Zip and Jaz drives.

    The software will release later in September, and sell for $70; current users of Ghost will be able to upgrade to version 10.0 for $50.

    Hi dscrap, I removed your thread from the Acronis support forum. Please use this forum for further discussion.

    Comparing a release version of a product against anothers beta version is not to be recommended.

    Thanks. Pilli

    Acronis TI 9.x feels like beta indeed. It is sold to customers though. Anyway, i bought Acronis TI 9.0 and i deeply regret it. New (beta) builds are coming out daily/weekly and atm i do not really how i can back up my data. Maybe Ghost 10.0 is the solution? Do you have any suggestions for backing up data?

    Cheers,

    Technic

    Well, I'm gonna find out. I sprung for Norton Ghost 10 last night (will get the $20 rebate). I have two other machines for the wife and the kids, so I can put Ghost 10 onto one of them if my TI9 ever gets up to speed where it's useful on my own machine.
