Symantec ghost trial only images up not down

20 February, 2008 (19:14) | software | No comments

I’m working on some fun Symantec Ghost stuff. One thing I learned- if you get symantec ghost solution 2.0 or whatever as the trial copy you CAN’T image down. Only up. How stupid is that to test the process? You can only do 10 machines, the images don’t work with another license. They have it […]
