Image versus backup file.


Rex Imperator


Can you please tell me the difference between an Image file, written by
say, Norton Ghost, and a backup file, written by say Nero BackItUp?

Which type is safer (meaning you will not lose data and the file will
not be corrupted) for the purpose of saving it for future restoration?
Which type is easier to restore when say a hard disk drive has failed,
but you can still boot into windows?
Which type is easier to restore in case of being unable to boot the
computer into windows?
Which type produces the smaller file?
Which type is easier to use?

Many thanks
