Why? I have found Autopsy to be useless. I have had a driver error on start up since my system shipped (or rather since the maintenance that was done on arrival) which Autopsy acknowledges on each start up and sends off an error message. Not only has no help been forthcoming on the issue (or non-issue as other than the annoying message it doesn’t seem to cause any trouble) but I have never even received any form of acknowledgement from AW about it.
Respawn is just Norton ghost, at a higher price. Ghost was being sold last week for ~$10 after rebate, can’t remember off the top of my head what deal site was linking it. In my case, where my computer arrived with the drives in a wrong configuration, my Respawn disc is actually useless. As it was being included for free at the time I ordered I consider it another non-issue but certainly nothing I would pay the price they are asking for it.
