    Softpedia has it a week before its official release, Softpedia brings you Norton Ghost 14! 30-Day Trial.

    Ever since Norton Ghost 10 (I believe), Symantec in their 'infinite wisdom' decided that the Ghost Boot CD should be strictly for Recovery, without Backup provisions! So as far as I'm concerned there are quite a few better disk-imaging programs than Norton Ghost (and that includes its latest v14 incarnation).

    Yup, I noticed that (after buying v12). Very short-sighted on their part! :doubt:

    Yes, Norton Ghost 14 is out. I have it on my computer right now. Really great software. Works great, and it's very easy program to navigate in. I haven't tested the other Norton Ghost version, so I can't say how this are compared.

    No, you can't back up with the Recovery CD. Why would you want to? The image created in Windows is perfectly acceptable as a backup.

    Not always! Some of us run instant system restore programs, such as GoBack EAZ-Fix, Rollback Rx, etc., which save their system snapshots in a hidden partition. The only way to back those up is by using a disk-imaging program from outside of Windows XP/Vista. That's also a more reliable way to backup your entire system.

    I agree with that. I used to be a big fan of Norton Ghost until a few versions ago. Nowadays I use different programs to make my images.
