Getting the most out of Ghost 10

1) I have just purchased Ghost 10 which I would like to use with Windows XP.
2) I have 5 basic patitions.

I have just installed all my software on my C: drive (my data is stored on a different partition) and I would like to take a copy so that I can restore all my software on a formatted clean partition periodically as I do now one application at a time.

Ghost seems to give you two options 1) to create a restore point and 2) to copy drive to another disc. I do not have a free partition to copy my C: drive to and I am concerned that a restore point only takes you back to a specific point in time but doesn't necessarily get rid of all the files I understand Windows generates as we go about our daily business, deleted files etc.

How can I take a copy or image of my C: drive ONLY that I can restore at a later time?

Please take a look at: http://www.symantec.com/home_homeoffice/products/overview.jsp?pcid=br&pvid=ghost10

The restore point is not windows related, but it's norton related, just think about an incremental backup.

Norton ghost gives you the opportunity to save the backup to a CDROM / DVD but doesn't recommend it because in most cases especially during full backup you need to swap the target media several times.

Instead they suggest network stores or USB drives. (For maximum data protection) Page 59 in the manual.

So I suggest you should check how many DVDs you need to backup drive C, best would be to get all files on just one DVD, saves you the disk swaping.

The general procedure of disk backup is described on page 45...

Thankyou.

Can I create a backup for one partition only when ever I try to define a new backup the setting includes all my drives and won't allow me to change it?

Nope, I think you can setup a backup plan anytime, even for just one partition. Just take a look at the manual link, I posted above.
