Symantec Ghost drew raves from our readers, garnering the Best Disk Imaging Software award with an overwhelming 65 percent of the total votes. Representative reader comments about the software include, "Solid performance, reliable, inexpensive," from a reader in Orange County, California, and "The corporate edition is remarkable for rollouts," from a reader in Charleston, South Carolina.

Symantec Ghost deploys, recovers, clones, and migrates PCs. From a central management console, you can deploy or restore an OS image or application onto a PC and migrate user settings and profiles. You can deploy entire OSs, application packages, network configuration settings, and incremental backups. By using the Ghost Client, administrators don't need to visit target PCs for routine deployment or maintenance. Symantec Ghost is backward-compatible and can restore images made with the same or earlier Ghost versions.
