I made two backups of my hard drive using v2i protector with a removable hard drive. The problem was when trying to restore a game,Links 2003, after the restore the game wouldn't start. Someone on their forum said that the game won't work from a restore, only a reinstall from the cd. I suppose drive image software is good for restoring winxp without having to go through activation but I wonder how many other programs won't work from the restore. Now I see v2i was bought by symantec and they're pushing ghost 9.0. Would it be worth buying this?

I cannot see why it shouldn't work from a restore - providing it is a full restore (including the registry) and not just the particular program folder.
Ghost was good, but it doesn't do anything that the others don't do. A lot of people are moving away from Ghost since Symantec started mucking around with it. I now use Paragon drive backup as well as an OLD version of Ghost.
