Hi All,

I have been using Norton ghost 7.5 on a bootable diskett for years.
I would like to get something as simple to do the same job.
I would like it to be able to ghost larger drives like 2-4 TB.
Do any of you know what I could use. I don't mind buying the
software as I am in the business.

Thanks, Randy

Did you try latest versions of Clonezilla ? It's a Linux based distro for imaging such as Acronis or Norton Ghost.

It can be run as live distro from USB pen drive (but I reccomend to use in conjuction with a USB external drive where download images, due to USB boot negotiate at 1.1).

I've used to reinstall XPSP3 workstations (but identical hardware) on a large network (> 500 wks).

If are requiring speed I can suggest Acronis, it's the most reliable and faster imaging tool.
(IMHO, of course).
