Whats the earliest version of Acronis that will work on W7, without any updates down loaded, cause I am on dial up?
Thanks David

I'm using ATI 11 with W7. Seems fine.

I haveAcronis TI 10 and it would not work on our Win7 Starter netbook, but I have run Macrium Reflect free on the netbook and it WILL work.

I've also heard that ATI 10 won't work with W7.

I should also add to my comment above that I've never had occasion to restore my computer from the ATI 11 image. So I can't absolutely guarantee its effectiveness.

However, David, if you want to be belt-and-braces about this, are you aware that Windows 7 includes its own system imaging function? I'm not sure whether it's available in all versions of W7, but I certainly have it in my Home Premium.

You can find it in Control Panel>System and Security>Backup and Restore.

If you make the Acronis bootable CD on an XP machine and boot to it to create or restore your backup on the Windows 7 machine in most cases even the older versions of Acronis work well

the downside is you are unable to mount backup images or schedule backups

I have twice successfully restored a windows 7 image made with Acronis 11 using the bootable CD

you can use any as long as you use it in DOS mode after booting with the CD

It will not work in windows, and only good for creating Images and Restoring them

I use ATI 2010 on a W7 64 bit Windows Home Premium PC and it works well. The ATI box says it is compatible with all versions of W7.

Yes I concur ATI 2010 works fine with Windows 7.
