Norton Ghost creates full system and file backups, restores from system failures, enables convenient, secure offsite backup, backs up on schedules and events. Norton Ghost protects PCs, including all applications, settings, folders, and files-with advanced backup and recovery. It provides powerful protection with new features such as offsite backups and Symantec ThreatCon integration, as well as enhanced performance, one-to-one remote management, LightsOut Restore capability, and more. With Norton Ghost you have a choice of backup types: full system (disk image) or specific files and folders. Backups include encryption and error checking to help keep your data safe, while compression, incremental backups, and automatic backup file management minimize storage space. Plus, you can now copy recovery points to a FTP site for easier offsite backup management.
Norton Ghost is ready whenever you need to recover, whether that involves restoring individual files or an entire system. The Software Recovery Disk allows you to start your computer, scan for viruses or hard disk errors, and start the recovery process even if your operating system won’t start.
With the advanced tools included in Norton Ghost, you can take data protection to the next level. One-to-one remote management backs up other computers on your network that have Norton Ghost 12.0 or higher installed, and LightsOut Restore lets you install the Software Recovery Environment on your hard disk so you’ll always be ready to recover. And now you can also take advantage of up-to-the-minute intelligence from Symantec’s industry-leading Internet security research organization by having your backups automatically triggered whenever ThreatCon reaches a specified threat level.
Your PC drive now contains more than text files. There are contacts, financial documents, pictures, and (valuable) music and video downloads. They aren’t as safe as you think. A glitch may accidentally occur to corrupt and even delete your files. That’s where Norton Ghost comes in. It helps you backup your precious data automatically. Prompt it or let it work in the background like a ghost – quietly protecting your files, transferring them to backup drives, and even optimizing the performance of your PC’s drives. There may be a ghost of a chance that you’ll ever need Ghost but it’s far better to have Ghost fighting on your side. After all, your PC contains key aspects of your life. Protect them with Ghost.
