Is anyone using Acronis True Image v. 10 with Windows 7? I have used TI 10 for a long time with XP computers and found it satisfactory. However I read postings that suggets TI may not work with Windows 7.

I have used, at the weekend,EasusToDo, to copy my C drive from one SSD to another larger SSD. It went extremely smoothly without any problems. I do not used Acronis as it has become far to bloated with functions I neither wanted nor needed.I have never used Windows 7 back up as I am not particularly confident in Microsoft's ability to produce certain types of software. They never seem to work quite as smoothly or easily as others.

I find this most worrying. Just bought Home 11 to do Windows 7 OS backup but I think I will also do my option 2 - copy partition to external HHD - )(using Acronis Disk Director 11 Home of course - oops)

Just had a response from Acronis who of couser state that my Version 10 is not compatible with W7 64bit. They recommend 2010 version onwards but will only offer support for 2012. They do offer an upgrade with is £14.95 (1 PC) but they have gone to this rip-off license system either 1 PC or 3. So if one changes the PC or buys an extra one, they want more money!

Have a read of this posting in the Acronis forums. There do seem to be problems with using version 10, in particular a restored image in Windows 7 may not boot due to the first partition starting at the wrong sector.

I like True Image 10 but having read about the later versions, they seem to have unneccessary features. Has anyone used a later version successfully and restored an image with Windows 7 and if so which version of TI have you used? What about the Windows 7 backup image program - is it any good, have you used it to restore and how does it compare with TI?

I stopped buying Acronis after 9 as it seemed to have ever more features that I neither wanted or needed, I tend to use Easus ToDo if I need this sort of program. But as I use a small SSD (60GB) for my OS and program's I find it is just as easy to reinstall Windows etc as everything else is on a larger HDD.

I have just rebuilt my Windows 7 x64 PC, that took me about 16 hours what with all the updates and service packs and other programs I wanted on there. Full build size is 53gb.

I then installed Acronis TI Home 10 which I had not used in a while. I took an image of the disk and recovered it using the Acronis Startup Recovery Manager,(just press F11 whilst the PC boots)and the full image was recovered in 15 mins. I know what will be doing all the work for me the next time I rebuild this PC.

So, the latest build 'TrueImage2010.7160suk' works well on Win 7 x64.

Original poster is referring to True Image Version 10, which isn't True Image 2010

I'm using Version 11, which again isn't 2011, and although I've backed up and restored images of my Windows 7 64-bit "C" drive, I haven't restored the actual partition from which Windows 7 boots. I don't know how similar versions 10 and 11 are.
