View Full Version : Norton Ghost
Bought Norton Ghost 2002 from ebay and not been able to use it as it needs a floppy drive and i dont have or use one.
Looking at NG 9.0 on the symantec website and there is an upgrade and full version whats the difference because both have the same size ISO whats the difference?
id imagine you pay more for the full version, if you have a lower one i think you might be able to get the cheaper upgrade, but i aint certain...
The full version and the upgrade are the same size, because they're one and the same thing :D The only difference between the two is that you need to own a previous version of Norton Ghost to qualify for the upgrade.
It'll tell you on the website what the minimum version you need to own already to qualify for the upgrade (2002 almost certainly will), but you'll need to have either the earlier version installed on your system, or the licence code of the earlier version handy when you install 9.0 ;)
As a matter of interest... the retail boxed Norton Ghost 9.0 has a full version of Norton Ghost 2003 supplied on CD as well, to cater for users still using Windows 9x, ME or NT Workstation 4.0! That's damned decent of them I'd say :cool:
Norton Ghost 2003 is a damn life saver.
Me an my old boos managed to make a ghost boot disk on a CD, we needed it when we were ghosting a hard drive image onto about 20 laptops.
I can't remember how he did it, but it's definatly do able.
He may have had 2004, but I'm not sure.
I used that very guide meself when I first started using Ghost Stephen! And I've kept the site bookmarked ever since, just in case I encounter a problem I haven't come across before ;)
It's a wealth of knowledge, and quite simply the best there is :cool:
I knew I had something else... somewhere! And I've found it... eventually :D
It ain't in the same league as Ratified's, but there's another decent guide to using Norton Ghost 9.0 on TweakHound (http://www.tweakhound.com/xp/backup/diskimage3.htm) ;)
