    Can anyone tell me if Acronis True Image TrueImage11 supports 64-bit versions of Windows Vista? I see on their web site it says the only 64-bit version of windows that v2009 supports is XP Pro v2009.

    Dazed and Confused: this may not exactly be the answer for which you are looking, since I cannot speak directly to True Image 2009.

    Rather, I have just about completed a very elaborate Vista 64-bit system and have been using True Image Echo Workstation with the Universal Restore plugin to back it up at each crucial step in its evolution. That is, I imaged the OS partition before the installation of each new (x64) driver and each (x64) utility.

    When my crisis came — due to the insufferable and devastating uninstall routine of Nero 7 that hosed the system — Echo flawlessly restored Vista 64-bit to pre-Nero bliss in about 15 minutes.

    Echo is an 'Enterprise' product and with Universal Restore will cost you more that the Home version. I believe its fewer 'bells and whistles' produce fewer bugs and headaches overall. Acronis will allow you to do a trial of the complete package per email request; and this a wise move to confirm that it is really compatible with the chipsets and drive array of your motherboard.

    If you do go ahead with Echo, and if you are technically proficient, purchase Mustang's script for Echo on Vista PE and attempt to build yourself a Vista PE rescue disc. Then you'll possess a backup/restore/rescue system surpassed by none. I cannot sufficiently extol eSATA external drives for backups. Just remember that eSATA is hot-switchable only when Vista has been originally setup in AHCI mode and that this option must be set in BIOS prior to running the Vista installation. Otherwise, the eSATA drive must running at the time Vista boots.

    Best of luck!

    Yes, Ti11 works with Vista64.

    I have installed Ti11 under Vista 64bit and the tasks work without an issue.
    Until now :)
