Drive Clone Pro vs. Ghost

bjulias
I have been using ghost for many years and recently found that its license states that it is not to be used to clone drives to be installed in multiple computers. This is a shame because it's so good at doing just that. Does Drive Clone Pro have any similar restrictions?

    you will find they are refering to using a non-volume license to clone many machines i.e. an OEM or Retail version of the operating system. They are basically saying please don't use this program to pirate software.

    Which version of Ghost are you using? The license has changed of the years. The most recent version (12, I believe) requires a client license for every system imaged. Unless you buy maintenance or the client licenses you can throw away an old system and then use it's Ghost license on a new system.

    Whatever it takes to turn a profit, eh?

    I haven't found anything that works as well as Ghost, but I am hoping to move to Vista soon and be able to use WDS and BDD. This also elimates the need for multiple images due to HAL incompatibilities, which I hate.
