Default Looking for good backup tool.

I'm looking for a good backup tool. I heard that Acronis True Image is good, but anyone have any suggestions for backup tools? I heard Norton Ghost is bad, but any suggestions are appreciated.

I have used both Acronis True Image 9 and Norton Ghost 9 both work AWESOME. Both of them worked good with SATA and RAID.

Smile Looking for good backup

I recently cloned my computer using Nortons Ghost 10, onto a Seagate Barracuda 160GB internal (removable) hard drive. I would highly recommend this way to backup your entire system.
There are numerous settings you can customise for your personal use of your clone within Ghost 10. I hope this post helps with your enquiry.
