I'd like to let you all know about my experience having these applications installed on my computer. I've recently bought Acronis TI home v9 build 3,677 as i had too many problems with Ghost 9. ATI seemed to work properly except that after verifying the newly created backup, my OS would either freeze or end up with a BSOD. I had been in contact with Acronis support for weeks, and I must say they were very keen to help. No solution was found, even after uninstalling almost every security application, the BSOD was inevitable. I thought well, I'll wait for the next ATI build and if the BSOD persists I'll try another company. In the mean time I was upgrading my PG from 3.405 to 3.410 and uninstalled PG 3.405 completely (in safe mode). Before installing the new version of PG, I thought I'll give another try to Acronis, and after creating and verifying the new backup, guess what: NO BSOD! PG was responsible even disabled, and this is confirmed by this review: http://www.techsupportalert.com/drive-imaging-reviews.htm I like PG, but it really seems to interfere with some applications. If I install the new version of PG, is it going to affect a real recovery of my system in case of disaster? I know the only way is to try, but then again if it fails i'll have to reinstall everything from scratch. Now my dilemma: Should I dump Acronis or PG?
