15.0.1 (See all)
Create backups of your partitions are use them to restore your system in case something happens. Additional features include remote control capabilities, file encryption, and Google desktop integration.

Without a doubt, Symantec has always been a developer with good PcTools, and they just keep getting better and better. In this new 14.0 version of Norton Ghost, besides the already known features such as backups and complete partition restoration, Symantec has included network functions, recovery points, ftp backup that copies the recovery points to an outer ftp server or an intranet NAS (Network-Attached Storage).

Symantec ThreatCon integration, which is a feature that triggers incremental backups automatically whenerver a threat is detected, works great in systems that are greatly exposed to viruses and worms and which don’t have a virus protection. Remote management is another feature that is now included in this version. Backups can be run from other computers inside the network. This feature will work even with computers running Norton Ghost 12.0. A new compression and encryption algorithm that saves more information in less space is also included. This feature will make companies save money on hard drives. Another interesting feature is the Google desktop integration, which enables data recovery faster with searchable backup indexes. As stated in prior reviews, this program is a very useful tool for big and small businesses.
