Product Use Rights

Terms of Use: A license is required for each PC benefiting from the Symantec Ghost Solution Suite software, not simply the number of host PC’s driving the imaging process. You may: (i) use the Software on one computer to clone, or apply an image of, a hard drive on that computer, or a portion thereof, to another hard drive on the same computer. You may make and use that number of copies of the Software licensed to you by Symantec as provided in your License Module on an equal number of individual computers pursuant to the terms of this license; (ii) use the Software on that same computer to create an image file of a hard drive on that computer and store the image file on removable media for disaster recovery purposes; (iii) use the Software to create a boot disk as described in the documentation for reapplying the hard drive image that was created for disaster recovery purposes to the hard drive on that same computer; or (iv) use the Software to clone a hard drive from that same computer to a replacement computer, in the manner described in the software documentation, and to use the Software on the replacement computer provided that the Software has been removed from the original computer.
