Norton's canned their "Ghost" backup product and I'm looking for recommendations for a new backup solution for my windows boxes. I've got ~1.5T of data to backup so I'm only doing backups to a USB drive or NAS.
(Advice to apply the Linux patch will be summarily ignored. :) )

Are you looking for local backup or cloud? If the latter, you could look at Carbonite (carbonite.com). For a fixed rate it backs up everything on a PC to the cloud.
What OS is on these "Windows boxes"?
Local only for now.
Either windows 7 or 10.
Cloudberry Backup. Been using it for years. Can backup locally or to any cloud provider. Probably both.
@Jeff - either windows 7 or 10.

FWIW, I used to backup "local only for now", until my house got robbed and they stole my USB backup drives along with everything else. Then I started rotating USB drives, leaving one at my Mom's house.Not exactly an "enterprise" backup solution.
What I like about Cloudberry Labs is that it can do all kinds of things like versioning and encryption and you only pay Amazon (or whichever cloud provider) for the disk space that you use. That's $0.03/GB-month for S3 and $0.015/GB-month for Glacier. Peanuts.
Another option is to use Google Drive. The latest version mounts your Google drive as a network drive on your Windows PC, so you can effectively work directly out of there, both offline and online. Google Drive unlimited storage is $10/month.
"Another option is to use Google Drive.."
Until Google decides you have offensive content and blocks your access.
@Paul - which version do you use?
