sood i stay with build 859 or 826
if i go back to 826 can i install over 859
I reverted to 826, 859 is too crippled for me to use in earnest. In my case, I just used System Restore to go back.
Rik Bean thanks for reply
Cant go back that far with my system restore, but ether i uninstall 859
which would be safer or over write with 826 and take a chance.
I think the over write is if your upgradeing from a lower build. not sure!!!
Anyway im happy so far with acronis true image its just what ive been reading on this fourum about 859............................
I'd tend to uninstall and then re-install going backwards. As you say, it's much easier upgrading.
If you're happy with 859, stick with it. I am not, because I can no longer explore my images correctly - and I regard that as a vital security measure in testing that they are good. It's a bit late discovering a bad image when you need it, and I'm very disappointed with Acronis for letting such an obvious bug out - it doesn't say much for their testing procedures.
Try and mount a drive from your backup and find a file that works! can't be done with 859!
I uninstalled 859 and re-installed 826.
Best result is to uninstall build 859 from Control Panel > Add/Remove programs, *reboot*, and then install 826. Required for some, others have had success just doing a Repair/"Upgrade" of 826 over 859.
859 image is OK, it's only the 859 mounter that is faulty. See this post today by Acronis: http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=486946&postcount=1
Well I restored 826 over 859 and if I restore ANY file from a mounted drive they are still all corrupt so going to do a full uninstall/reinstall of 826, 859 seems to goose something badly!
Yes, uninstalling 859 before installing 826 is definitely the way to go. There are some 859 files that aren't always overwritten by the older versions if you just use the Repair/Upgrade option. After uninstalling 859, and during the 826 install, you will be prompted to overwrite the newer files. Just select "Yes" and all will be well.
