    Hi all, I'm using acronis true image and am wondering if programs such as this one and norton ghost, which use compression for their backups can be at all detrimental to the audio quality contained in the backups. thank you.

    I highly doubt it.
    Because it compresses data, it must employ lossless compression (the data has to be bit-exact when it comes out of the other end) and as such, your audio will remain unaffected assuming the process is done correctly.

    Unless, of course, Norton has decided to go wonky on us and make everything within the backup into a 32Kbps mp3...
