Norton Ghost 10.0 is a full system backup application. It will back up all data that are stored on your computer‘s hard drive or drive partition. Version 10.0 was the first to include support for information stored on CD-R/RW and DVD-R/RW drives, as well as USB, Firewire and other portable media-storage devices. Norton Ghost is also able to back up information to a remote server to free the network administrator from having to physically be present when the computer is being backed up. A common task for Norton Ghost 10.0 is creating a boot disk for your computer.
