Are you tired of installing all your software and design tool all over again, and again when you have to re-install your windows ? May you got a nasty virus, and have to re-install. Nothing is worst than this, been a web designer and having A LOT of software installed on your PC, the windows re-installation is your nightmare :)
I’m using Norton Ghost for a while, and it helped me a lot, at least I’m satisfied that every time I need to re-install I know I have made a backup of my C: partition and when I want everything back to the place I saved that backup I just have to run Norton Ghost and everything will be back to normal.
Why Norton 2003 and not 2007 ?
I’ve experimented Norton ghost 2007… and I still think that 2003 version is the best available in date backup, windows backup and more. The 2007 version has TO MANY unnecessary features that I, honestly, don’t need. I just want a windows backup program. That’s all.
If this is what you are looking for you’ll find a download available here for the Norton Ghost 2003 version. Just install, run Norton ghost and then backup your desired partition. The computer will reboot and Norton ghost will start backing up your files (windows).
After that It will reboot again and you can continue your work. Remember that you can always do another backup, if you want, when you have installed a lot more programs and software, and would like to have your computer restored in that point, after windows re-installation.
