Windows 7 Back Up

Pine Man

Likes # 0

I am running W7 32bit Home Premium.

For some time now I have been using Acronis True Image 2009 and it always seems to work ok with W7 as far as making back ups and validating them goes BUT when I tried to do a restore it wouldn't work. I think there might be compatibility problems at the moment according to their forum.

Has anybody tried the W7 back up facility which also makes an image like Acronis?

If the various versions that work for some and not for others are so variable.....Then anything other than TI 2010 cannot be called truly "compatible"as you rightly say!
This looks like one of those Windows "quirks" that no one seems to have an answer for .Acronis Tech support themselves gave me conflicting answers on this this issue...and Microsoft have appended a "?" too!
So ..the only thing I can think of is that its a conflict that obviosly does not become apparent on all the many various machines it could possibly run on..!!
I guess I and others have been lucky..Having said that..I'm a big fan of TI ..and I think I'll upgrade to 2010 to be 100% sure...Who knows ..I may just install some software later that will" break it" !!
