Hi everybody. After 1,5 years using my pc, it's working really slow so I'm planning to make a restore of the whole system. I don't want to lose all the softwares and files so my idea is to make a system restore using Ghost. Is this possible or that software it's only for create backup copies?
Thanks

If you mean Symantec Ghost, then it will recover your computer to preset factory conditions with your Recovery disks. I would suggest backing up everything before you do so though..

Is this "Ghost" your talking about a program or a set of disks that came with the computer?
Who said I couldn't have everything?

you can do that for files
but for programs then it will cause problems(programs will say their not installed or freeze)
so just get a usb and keep your files on that
