    Anyone try before this software? Does it come with WinPE?

    GSL,

    It's the big brother of Ghost 15. It does a few more things such as HIR.

    The CD is a recovery CD and is WinPE based.

    Ok, my final question will be how long does it take to backup/restore entire PC(C:\ drive)?

    This depends on your hardware. Count on roughly 1 to 2 GB per minute.

    BESR has been "superseded". It's now called Symantec System Recovery 2011.

    The WinPE is Vista based. Not Win7 based.

    It has a solid history...it was the old PowerQuest V2i Protector (which got me into imaging in the first place back in the NT 4.0 days). Symantec bought them out, and it because LiveState Recovery. Not a Symantec fan myself, and I haven't used it. I think the founders of the V2i snapshot technology went on to work at StorageCraft.
