Windows 8 and Ghost 15
You can use these together. The images are created and restored quickly using the "cold" technique. There is no need to install Ghost 15.
For those who aren't familiar with creating a "cold" Ghost 15 backup image, I'll describe how to backup the Win8 partition...
Boot using the Ghost 15 CD
Backup My Computer
Enter your license key
Select the Win8 partition
Browse to your destination folder
Compression Standard (recommended)
Put a tick in Verify recovery point afyer creation
You can create images of other partitions (if you desire) after the current process has completed.
Cold imaging is a manual procedure but it only takes a few minutes of your time. Are there advantages over "hot" imaging? Yes, speed. In my test computer a cold image takes only half the time to be created compared with creating a hot image.
It's true you can't do Copy Drive from the Ghost 15 CD, but no problem, you can do image/restore instead. I prefer cloning drives with image/restore.
