Absolutely slaying the competition, including--in second place--another Symantec product, Symantec Ghost is easily our readers' choice for Best Disk Imaging Software. Repeating the feat for the second straight year, Symantec Ghost has ardent supporters, many of whom happily cite the product's "incredible ease of use."

Symantec Ghost is a comprehensive enterprise tool that provides OS deployment, software distribution, and client migration. You can deploy or restore an OS image or application onto a PC in minutes, and you can easily migrate user settings and profiles to customize PCs. You can choose to deploy whole OSs, application packages, user personalities, security hotfixes, or incremental backups. You can use Symantec Ghost's central management console to quickly deploy specific PC changes such as registry changes or desktop settings. You can also remotely clone multiple workstations, then quickly configure crucial workstation data such as TCP/IP settings and machine, workgroup, and domain names. The Ghost Client lets you perform routine deployment and maintenance on remote machines.
