Q:
Clayton asked, "How does SVS work with a recovery solution on a personal computing level, such as Norton Ghost?"

A:
No difference, Clayton. Since the SVS redirect areas are stored in the regular Windows file system and registry, imaging technology like Ghost just handles data in SVS layers like it's any other data.

This means that when I produce a full ghost image and update the ghost image I need to include all Windows file system and registry. So that I can reproduce exactly the same initial computer environment. But in case of a cloning the same computer in two different images ?

That means that if you include SVS and any app layers, it will be all included in the image. Just run sysprep afterwards and its good to go to the customer...

SVS works with Norton Ghost but how about with Norton GoBack?

RDeploy is so much more robust than Norton Ghost! I would suggest using RDeploy for your imaging.
