    Hi All,

    As a free download, I was given Acronis 10.0 since I purchased Vs.9.0 in
    in September. I downloaded and received two files both over 100mb. one for 10.0 and the other for 10.01. I installed the 10.01 over vs. 9.0 and attempting to clone my hard drive the program became corrupted and dropped the NTLDR on both drives. I had to reload my original hdd and recover the second drive.
    I loaded Acronis 9.0 and cloned my hard drive sweetly with no difficulty.
    I received no instructions with 10.0 and 10.01 how to load, I used the 10.01 without installing the 10.0 and now am not sure how to proceed.
    I do not wish to corrupt anymore drives and on downloading the PDF for 10. there is nothing new from 9.0 for installing. What would cause the corruption and does anyone have correct installation instructions for updates to version of Acronis True Home? Only real difference I see in 10. is they say it will work with the new Vista from M/S.
    Can anyone direct me or others to proper instructions.?? Edwh
