Search and restore tops the possibilities offered by normal backup software.Not only can you chose to create backups from just certain parts of your data (as opposed to only entire harddisks or at least partitions), you are also free to decide where to store these, or when updates should be performed.It is possible to run updates in the background or start them just prior to shutting down the PC.
A worthwhile update from Ghost. Added to the reliability and performance you get the possibility to let updates perform even more flexible - choosing source files, destination paths and schedules like never before.It is possible to have backups triggered by system events or create encrypted files for added security.A perfect solution for private or soho users,whatever their backup strategy may require.
I just upgraded from Norton Ghost to Save & Restore and it's been the best upgrade I ever got my money.The extended features of Norton Save & Restore turn your harddisk backup program into a tool to save and manage any kind of backup from any kind of data on your system.From regular backups to hourly copies of your most critical files to a separate network drive: Norton has the answer.
Norton Search and Restore provides users with the option to create a (or several!) backup strategies tailored exactly to their needs.
In short, it is possible to chose *what* should be copied *where* *when* and *how* under very specific conditions.
Chose either an entire harddisk for a full image, or select individual files and folders to be stored. It is even possible to use file-filters to dynamically create the collection of files that should be backed up.
Norton lets you store the backups anywhere you chose. Locally, on networked drives, CD / DVD or USB drives, the choice is all yours.
Backups can be timed and restricted to certain days if you so desire.
Full backups are possible as much as incremental ones; either version can be encrypted.
Backups can be event-triggered and will perform e.g. before a new piece of software is installed. Also, if timed backups are carried out, the system will know how to handle backups that were due with the PC turned off.
Almost needless to say, all of these features can be freely combined, and parallel backup schedules are possible, too.
