The essence of Ghost is image the system in well-installed operating system. It is used to restore the system when Windows cannot boot normally.

With agility properties in Ghost, it also has overt flaw:
Lengthy backup and restore process. With the increase of hard drive capacity, the C drive in Windows could reach to 15 GB, and some green hands even place 40-60 GB onto C drive. If users backup and restore C drive with Ghost, which mat take 40 minutes or even longer.
Ghost has bad system compatibility for Windows 7/8/10 since it only backup one partition at a time while aforementioned operating systems has two partitions for system running: system partition and system reserved partition.

However, Ghost needs to do system backup in Dos, and users cannot operate computer for daily use.
