Currently running TI-7.0 on Win2K, and will soon be migrating PCs to XP Pro AND POSSIBLY LATER XP-64bit. 1. If I want to switch from TI-7 (which is now a "Home" product) to Workstation, can I buy the Workstation *UPGRADE*, or must I buy the full version? 2. I'm confused by the TI-WS pricing for support. -- Is there *NO* support without the "Maintenance and Priority Support subscription", even right out of the box? -- What support do I get if I just buy an upgrade to TI-Home-9.0? 3. My TI-7 User’s Guide says that DVD can be used DIRECTLY both for backup (page 20), and for restore when booting from a TI boot disk (page 60). So why do the latest versions say that using DVD is a *new* feature? What specifically is new about DVD in versions after TI-7? Some of Acronis.com's pages mention "no need to use third-party drivers" -- but Acronis' own site publishes multiple examples of magazine reviews of TI-9 which say that you DO need to acquire UDF drivers which aren't provided by Acronis. 4. On page 59 of my TI-7 User’s Guide, it explains "How can I prepare Windows XP, NT or 2000 for cloning or transferring to a PC with different hardware?". If I *DON'T* buy Universal Restore, then does TI-WS have any capabilities for "transferring to a PC with different hardware" that are different from TI-Home? 5. TI-WS can "Boot from an image, using Acronis Snap Restore". But TI-Home also has something called "Snap Restore", although it doesn't specifically mention "Boot from an image". Is TI-Home any different in this respect? 6. The "Version comparison" chart at http://www.acronis.com/enterprise/products/ATICW/comparison.html only compares corporate products. Except for the ability to support Universal Restore, the only difference I see between TI-WS and TI-Home is (a) modifying images in read-write mode, and (b) using corporate resources like centralized servers, Remote Administration, Microsoft VSS, and big-metal hardware. Is there anything else? 7. The "Version comparison" chart says that TI-WS doesn't support Windows Server or Linux. I thought that the TI boot-disk boots linux, and can be used to perform a sector-by-sector backup and restore of ANY locally-attached drive and file-system, without booting a specific customer OS. What am I misunderstanding? 8. Does TI-Home *run* under XP-64? And even if not, can't I still backup and restore an XP-64 system using a TI boot-disk? Thanks!
