Hi,
Does anybody recommend any ghosting software for Windows PC's other than Symantec.

Customer does not have a server so something that is USB software based?

Thanks

Supporting cwstad2's statement, Acronis True Image was simple but effective to use.

FWIW, also used Macrium Reflect Free, but liked Acronis True Image better.

Cloning and many other options are available from:
http://www.disk-image.net/

Their software creates a bootable CD/DVD/USB for loading.  The tools can be run from an active OS.

I like IMAGEX as a cloning option.  It doesn't have a slick GUI that I am aware of, but with a little command-line scripting it can do the job.

Norton Ghost is a Symantec Product that doesn't need a server and can clone a computer hard drive happily.

If you want image backup, Acronis is a good option.   A trial can be downloaded from the Western Digital web support pages.

There is three software that work great, there Norton ghost, Acronis True Image, and Macrium Reflect, there is trial version for all three, now if cloning is going to be use in a non production there is a free version of it, in my personal option I have found that acronis is very good option, but, with Macrium Reflect you can pick and chose the part.. that you wish to copy were acronis you have to copy the whole disk.....
