I need some advice on backup software that is either paid for or freeware.

 

I have for many years used PowerQuest drive image, then when Norton acquired it, Norton Ghost.

 

Currently, 15 does not work properly in windows 8.

 

Reasons I need a replacement, that must work on Wndows 8.1, is because my sons PC is near dead, system errors, crashing and a real pain, it's probably

 

the mobo, it is pretty old now, (7 years) and settings don't work properly in it.

 

So I don't have time to build him one, found an above entry level one at ASDA, however comes with 8.1 pre-installed, (hangs head in shame).

 

So I need a backup utility that works just like Ghost.

 

So I can burn a backup, then if need be insert a disk created for the backup reboot and then pick backup to restore.

 

So just like Ghost.

 

I want to be able to do incremental backups (small ones) with just changes.

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello and thanks for the reply, I did consider this before, but read, it was not for 8.1.

 

I think the poster was wrong so will investigate.

I think this update fixes it and makes it supported under Windows 8.1

No problem.

It is a shame having to answer all the questions and/or register for a trial...
