Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery 7.0 VS Backup Exec 11D

Posted on 2007-07-23
Last Modified: 2013-12-01

I understand that Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery 7.0 enables complete system recovery including  full bare metal recovery to dissimilar hardware.

So I can make my laptop EXACTLY like my desktop with ALL the same applications.

My question is if Symantec Backup Exec 11D ALSO offers this functionality.

Can I do this with 11D or ONLY 7.0?

I want all my applications to run exactly the same on my laptop as my desktop.  They both run Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 (32 bit).
