Hi,

 

Nope...strictly files and folders only.

You would want to look at Symantec System Recovery for this.

Thanks!

Furthermore, DLO 7 is now a separate product.  BE 2012 does not include DLO.

Currenlty I have Symantec DLO 7.0, will this version restore to bare-metal? The Symantec Rep told me it would.

Like I said, look at SSR Desktop Edition. The guy is completely wrong and should go read the DLO 7 Admin Guide.

DLO 7 is only for user files and folders. It does not protect hardware at all...
