    If a backup is done with a non Universal restore version of TI, can one go back with a UR version and perform a UR on the restored image.

    Yes, I've seen this done. During the Restore process, the UR gives you the option to add drivers pertaining to the "new" machine. It doesn't matter if a non-UR version of True Image was used to make the backup.

    Let me get this straight: One can make ATI-11 archives of a Vista system that True Image Echo Workstation + Universal Restore Add-on "Bootable Media" will correctly read and restore to differing hardware, for example a new motherboard?

    I understand that TIEW/UR supports restoration to differing hardware, but I am interested to confirm archive [file] compatibility.

    Hello Acronis! — can you verify this?

    Hello True Image Echo Workstation + Universal Restore users! Does this combo work well with Vista?

    Hello fesee, atitlan and everyone interested,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Software.

    Please be aware that Acronis Universal Restore is only used during the restore process. Therefore, it doesn't matter if the version of Acronis True Image that created the image included Acronis Universal Restore or not.

    Acronis guarantees backup compatibility for different Acronis True Image products within the same version number. E.g., Acronis True Image Echo Workstation will work with backups created by Acronis True Image Echo Server for Windows.

    Compatibility between different branches of Acronis True Image products (i.e. Acronis True Image Home and Acronis True Image Echo), however, is not guaranteed (though it is still often possible to restore).

    Thank you.
