"Norton save and restore (NSR) sucks! Rating is 0!"1.0 starson by wamacher
Pros: It has nothing to recommend it! It does more harm that good!
Cons: It is hopelessly bad!
Summary: I bought Norton system works and installed save and restore. I finally realized that my computer had s--l-o-w-e-d down badly whenever NSR was runing. So I reset the scheduling in NSR and ran an initial backup again. That backup had run for about seven hours when I chatted with Norton (Case Number 491926484, followed by case number whoops they did'nt give me one). Jose at Norton confirmed that what I was seeing was nothing unusual. That's the way it works. Wow!!!! I let the backup continue running all night. It had completed the next morning. It trashed all the previous backups in my backup file and DID NOT create a new backup! I uninstalled NSR and installed my old copy of Norton Ghost 9.0 which I had been very happy with. It would not work because it was no longer registered! When I chatted with Norton the second time with all my woes they could not help me with Ghost 9.0 because they no longer supported it.
I had already turned off Norton Go-Back in System Works because it was more of a pain in the neck than anything else. Other vendor's programs seem to do the rest of the System Works features better. so I asked Norton to cancel my subscription to System works and give me a refund. They agreed!
I am going to avoid Symantec and Norton products from now on. I think that they have lost their edge. Putting out a product like NSR and having the gall to charge for it is unconsionable!!!!
