    I realise there are a few posts on this topic already but none of them seem to conclude what the problem was.

    I am loathed to have to enter into the support process if it is possible not to. I have already spent two hours trying to sort this and am now without v8 and any ability to back anything up as a result of this so called upgrade. Entering into the support process which looks like a 48 hours and some, plus the weekend is something I would prefer to avoid if possible.

    If anyone out there knows why I might get the error message "The installation was interrupted before Acronis True Image Home could be installed. You need to restart the installer to try again" when installing V9 build 3633 I would be very grateful for your comments.

    - I am running XP Sp2 with latest updates.
    - I did have V8 installed, but removed it prior to trying to installing the v9 home upgrade
    - I have run checkdisk across all my partitions without any problems.
    - I have 3.5 GB free on the C: (installation drive)
    - I downloaded the installable again from the latest updates site, (this was the same build 3633) and was identical in size to the original. Both files give an MD5 hash of 85CDFC4187D155FD8069F943B03BF7DA.

    Acronis really know how to frustrate their user base. An installation program just aint rocket science - and if it does run into a problem, it should make it clear to the user what the problem is.
