No doubt Ghosting is a better process than re-installing Windows as it not only saves our precious time but also saves our effort.
Ghost is a process of backing up or creating the Image of Hard Disk so that we can restore the contents of the disk easily to another or the same drive. This comes very handy especially when you want to copy the entire disk content to another disk.
It will take you ages if you install Windows and manually update the content but Ghost software can do the same thing in minutes.
Norton Ghost is the best tool to clone the disk but the problem with this is that it is not free and everyone can not afford buying it. So here is free Ghost software to backup your data.
