R61- maintaining a ghosted disk image- must be Lenovo brand?

2008-03-04, 1:24 AM
Hi,
 
I want to maintain a ghosted disk image. In the case of disk failure, I'd like to simply swap the failed active disk for my backup disk.
 
Will the ThinkVantage software allow me to maintain a *ghosted image* via *incremental* backups?
 
Will I have to purchase a Lenovo-branded disk for my backup, or can I use any SATA disk?
 
TIA,
jsdn

Ghost does not work incrementally. It does an image of the drive in it's current condition. You can have multiple images made at different dates. They will restore you back to the condition on the day the image was made.

You can use any SATA drive. Lenovo branding does not matter.
