Ghost 9 or Acronis True Image 8?

Ghost 9 or Acronis True Image 8?

Tried True Image 8 to backup under W2K Pro.

C: W2K OS drive - worked,
D: fat32 data drive - worked
E: 3rd drive having 1 fat 32 , 1 Suse 92 Swap, and 1 reiser fs partiions.
Did full disk backup of 3rd drive and restore - worked.
Did 3rd drive fat32 partition backup and restore - Worked.
Did 3rd drive resiserfs partiton backup and restore - worked.
Tried file/folder restore in fat32 partitions - worked.

Can not do file/folder restore for reiserfs. Knew this constraint. Can do only partition backup and restore.

Also tried backup/restore partitions using rescue CD - worked. Can not do file/folder restore - Knew the constraint.

All of the above created backup as an image file.
Have options for compression. I tried Normal.
Backsup only used space and uses compression.

Speed - good. Usability - good. Reliability - good.
Price - Good value for W2k and Resiserfs/ext2/ext3 environment backup/restore.

I like it as far as I have tested.

I think ghost does not do reiserfs backup/restore.
