"So Far, So Good"4.0 starson by 2Rivers96
Pros: Easy Installation, Easy Back-up
Cons: None so far
Summary: After reading the reviews on this and other websites, I was a little concerned about purchasing Ghost 10, but I did anyway. I have to say that my experience is quite the opposite of the majority of the reviewers.
After reading the manual, I loaded the program on my Compaq Presario (649MHz – 740MB Ram – 32G Memory with 19G free) and saved the back-up to a Seagate 160G external drive (USB connection) with no problem. I was able to activate the product with the provided key code during the installation process. I was also able to boot my machine from the supplied disk – a step recommended by Symantec. I have not experienced slowed response time in any of my applications due to Ghost running in the background. I can run Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator, as well as Outlook Calendar in conjunction with one another, access the internet, including Yahoo IM, piece of cake.
I must admit, that when I loaded the software, my system was stable (and still is), all of my software was registered, and I loaded from a disk, not an internet download. I highly recommend reading the manual prior to installation, as some of the problems that I have read about on this site and others are addressed.
