Giving "The Ghost" Another Try

Giving Symantec's Norton Ghost another try. First time I tried to do a backup of my entire MyDocuments, Music and Video. Big mistake! The estimated time is between 37 to 41 hrs. Geez !!! So, am changing my tactic. I'm going to do separate backups of certain folders, one at a time.

This program does look like it's feature rich but clunky. I'm trying to cancel my backup and even the Cancel seems to be taking forever. Why? It's probably trying to erase all the folders it created. I dont have the patience to wait 41 hours to do a backup. There must be a simpler way!!!


Lesson learned: never start a backup late in the day
