What are the benefits of using Norton Ghost 15?




Norton Ghost 15 is a tool for creating backups of your entire hard drive or selected files and folders that can be recovered at any time, for example in case of moving to a new system or a hardware failure. Here are some of the benefits of using this software:


  • Backup and restore your entire hard drive or selected files and folders: You can choose to backup your entire hard drive, including the operating system, applications, settings, and data, or only backup specific files and folders that you want to protect. You can also restore your backup to the same or different hardware, or to a virtual machine.



  • Create bootable recovery media from ISO images: You can create a bootable USB flash drive or external hard drive from an ISO image that contains Norton Ghost 15 and your backup files. This way, you can boot from the USB device and access your backup without installing anything on your PC.
