    Running Windows XP Home with Norton Ghost.

    Had to do a full recovery today. Had to go back through several backup dates because Symantics Norton Ghost failed to recognize backup discs it had previously passed with flying colors on the Integrity Check.

    Fortunately, it finally recognized a backup from two weeks back. This is not acceptable and I'm now looking for a better backup software package. Any suggestions?

    I'm not sure I'd dump GHOST because you have one corrupted image. It's one of the most popular image backup utilities, and I've used it in a number of accounts with 100% success. OTOH, I had Acronis True Image install trash a system to the point I needed the GHOST backup I had for it. :) I don't think Acronis True Image is trash because of that one incident, but it can happen to any application, and might not even be connected to the specific application.

    Any of the major brand image backups would probably do the trick...
