I am trying to find the 'right' software that will allow me to backup my system and allow me to restore it exactly as it was before a crash, like partitions, data, OS, etc.

I have Norton SW 2005 and Windows XP.

Thanks.

I just recently bought a PC with XP home and i had the option to make a system recovery . Of course that will restore the computer to like it came out of the box.

You also have restore points. Start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Sorry if i have insulted your intelligence.

Good suggestions but I recommend not using Ghost. Try using a simpler backup program such as Acronis True Image or Genie Backup Manager. Thats just my opinion though because I personally don't like Ghost.
