I would like to know if Ghost can properly restore a backup of 7. Thank you.
After you installed it I can only suggest to try it... Nobody knows how it works on win7.

It is specified that Win7 is not officially supported, and that for Ghost 14 there isn't a plan for an update. However, it is not said if those compatibility warnings DO actually point to a known issues or if it's just Windows' conclusion when it realizes the app was designed for Vista/XP. I've had countless other programs saying that on install but all work absolutely fine. The reason why I'm so specifically concerned about Ghost is because of the different partition layout, and Ghost's potential of causing partition corruption.
A response with known issues about Ghost and Win7 so far(if any) would be helpful.

Go ahead, take a chance. Your OS can only be a few weeks old and if it is destroyed you have the opportunity to reinstall Win7 without having that System Reserved partition. I wouldn't want it on my computer under any circumstances. And I don't have it. What happens if you have a HD failure and that partition isn't backed up? I don't know.

Window 7 RTM 64-bits on Asus P5E3 Premium x48 RAID0 3 partities.
Norton Ghost 14 Give's warnings to be not compatible but installs fine if you ignore it.
Update works also and after it fine no warnings.
One Time backup works and Recovery with recover CD does Also works with Windows 7 RTM.
Did restore image's without one problem..
To me it seems the Install software only must be updated.
I'm glad it works.
