Restore Anywhere Option in Ghost 15
I notice that the "restore anywhere" option option in Ghost 15 always seems to be grayed out. Does anyone know if there is a seperate license that can be purchased to enable this capability?
I will have a need coming up soon for this capability.
NOTE: I'm aware of a potential workaround, namely, doing a conversion to a vitual disk format, then restoring that virtual disk and choosing the option to run mini setup. Unfortunately, in my case I will have a need to do this with a Win7 system that has a System Recovery Partition. In all my testing this workaround works fine EXCEPT when I have a SRP present. It always yields a non-booting system for me.
In digging further I found that Symantec has another product, Backup Exec System Recovery Desktop Edition, that appears to be almost exactly the same product as Ghost but it clearly does have the Restore Anywhere option. However, system requirements indicate that it only works with Win7 Pro, Ultimate, and Enterprise (I need it for Home Premium) and requires purchase of 5 licenses minimum. My need is for only 2 systems.
I seem to be in some crazy middle ground where I can't get this capability.
Surely, there must be a way to purchase a license to enable this in ghost (if not, why even show the option in the program?). I plan on calling Symantec, just thought someone here might be familiar with this already.
