Hi all,

I am looking for a software product that can help me to backup harddisk by image them, I have norton ghost, it works well with IDE drives and very few of the SCSI, I also tried drive image, same as Norton.

Please advise if there is any better software that can help me to do imaging and works on majority of the SCSI and SATA drives.


Thanks in advance.

Live state is $700 bucks and made for servers.
Ghost 9 is about $59 bucks as is Acronis made for workstations.
