    For Acronis True Image 2009 Home, the bootable media tab under my licenses at the website has an .iso file labeled "Product native bootable media." I know what bootable media is, but what does that file represent or is it for? I can't find any information about it anywhere. Thanks.

    This is a file you can download and create a start-up CD with. It allows you to boot into a scaled down version of ATI and perform backups and restores in the event of a disaster and you can't start your computer. You could also create a rescue CD from within the ATI2009 program itself. I created the rescue CD from within ATI as I had problems with the ISO file. I'm sure others will chime in here and add more information.

    Thanks. That was my hunch, but it's apparently not documented.

    The only benefit would be if the TI CD you bought or created with TI didn't have the necessary drivers for your computer and the downloaded version did.
