    Hello everyone,

    Recently we purchased Symantec Ghost Solution 2.5. Finally after 8 years of using symantec ghost 7.5 we decided to upgrade. It was one of my tasks to look at the new software and see if it's going to benefit us. So I did and my boss approved it. Today I received the licenses and registered with symantec so that I could download the software. I probably spent a good half of the day figuring it out and seeing how it works etc.

    Symantec website has a visual tutorial that is pretty limited in a way where there are questions that I would like to see answered but I can't really find any complete answers anywhere. I will probably figure it out on my own over a period of time by using it but I was wondering if there's any here who uses the same software at their company and who might know where I could find some books, etc on the Symantec ghost solution.

    Thanks.

    This software is pretty good once you get everything setup. I maybe spent a good 1 1/2 days setting it up and configuring and learning how things work. It's a bit tricky at the beginning but then when you really start using it it gets pretty simple and very efficient.

    Thanks for the feedback. Just curious, but did either of you consider Acronis? For, against - please post!

    I've never tried Acronis but I know my friend uses it and he really likes it. We picked ghost because we were familiar with it and got a good price for licenses.

    Yep! we're currently using ghost enterprise edition 7.5 and hence we thought the next logical step would be to go with ghost solution suite 2.5. Our trust company also getting a good deal lincense wise.

    I have heard of Acronis but don't much else than that.
