Norton Ghost: 2003 or 10.0?

Hi all,

I have a copy of both Norton Ghost 2003 and 10.0 at my disposal (both shipped in Ghost box when purchased) and was wondering which version I should use.

I hear 2003 is a DOS based version; so will that make it more difficult for a noob like me to use?

For those who have used both, which one should I install and why? (what are the pros and cons of each version?)

If it is of any consequence, I will be using either version with an external hard drive.

Thanks for your help

ghost 2003 is a good version, easy to install and use. But i suggest, before running it to run the live update.

Does 2003 have the 'auto-back up' feature?

By this I mean first doing a big, total backup - then setting ghost to 'top-up' or 'update' this image/backup daily or weekly.

I have both versions, Ghost 2003 and Ghost 10.  Personally, I like using Norton Ghost 2003 because it seems like it boots faster, where as the Ghost 10 boot disc take a long time to load.  It is a matter of taste, the really big benefit for using Ghost 10 is that the USB drivers are a lot better than Ghost 2003.  

***Real Important, if you have an Intel Motherboard that is fairly new, make sure you run the Symantec Live Update with Norton Ghost 2003.  There was a critical bug that would hose the data on your hard drive when creating a Ghost image.

Good Luck!
