Has anyone had success in creating a task to do the following:

Backup specified user data, image/clone a new image to the same hd, and then restore the data?

I can get it to backup the data and image the PC but when it comes back up, it does not restore any data. [:@] It appears that the virtual partition is still there though.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Not sure what you mean by backup/restore the data - how are you doing this and where are you storing the backup?

I'm using Ghost 8.0 along with the Ghost console.

I have setup a single automated "task" within the console to do the following:

1.) Grab the user data and save to the ghost server
2.) Image the PC
3.) Restore the user data (with PC name and files)

The problem is that after the imaging process is complete, the data is never restored.

Do I need to have the Symantec Client INSTALLED on my master image or should the virtual partition remain after it's ghosted?

Why is it not coming up and "remembering" it's PC name/client name and restoring the data to it from the server?

Yes, you do need to have the Ghost client installed on the master image. The virtual partition is just used for DOS level operations. Once in Windows, the client needs to be there to communicate with the console, and complete your task.

It would be useful there was an option to install the client after imaging, as part of the task, but there doesn't seem to be a way.
