Acronis True Image 2013 vs Norton Ghost 15
You need a backup solution for your home or business, and you don't want to only have file and folder backups. You want the ability to get a complete backup of your computer, including your operating system and other configuration options. When you want that kind of backup, you need a disk imaging software. This creates an exact backup of your system as it was when you created the image. Because of this, the backup does end up being quite large, and its best if you store it on a separate physical disk or drive in case there's a hardware failure.

Norton Ghost 15 Advantages
Norton Ghost 15 is created for professional and business users, and is the latest in a long line of Norton imaging software. It has an automatic backup function, scheduled image creations, automatic backup when new viruses are going around, a hidden boot partition to help with recovery, support for disc backup, external hard drive, and network attached storage, and it also compresses your images so you aren't taking up as much space.

Norton Ghost 15 Disadvantages
Norton Ghost 15 is obviously designed for business and enterprise situations. This is not the type of software that you usually have sitting around on your home PC, and the feature list makes that apparent. It's going to be incredibly overwhelming to pick and choose between the options if you just want a backup once a month or so for personal use, so you need to keep in mind just how much of a backup solution you really need. It also does not push your files between devices or sync to a cloud like True Image 2013 does. Finally, it's more expensive of the two options.
