i cant see it having any issues with Ghost and Vista, seing as its almost identically the same as Windows XP. Ghost doesnt care about what you OS you have on your HDD, as long as its FAT32, NTFS etc, something it can recognize, it will copy without any problems.

^^ If it's booting off of a CD, I belive that's true. But some versions install onto the computer (like 10.0) and they do not work in vista.

IS acronis free?

true, ghost 10 installed on a vista machine might have its problems but if he's cloning a HDD, then the only way to achieve that is to boot from the CD.

Symantec are working on a version of ghost that is compatible with Vista at the moment but if you have the Ultimate version of Vista its got its own imaging back up tool
