    I still have version 8.0 build 937; should I upgrade or not? I'm still seeing too many complaints about the latest version. :blink:

    I upgraded from V8 to V9 and it was a nightmare. Could not plug an image to look at, explore just use to fall over, it was so slow that it was un-usable. I reported the faults and tech support responded with suggestions.
    However I was also having problems with Internet Explorer 6 and could not use the Windows Update facility through it. FireFox is my default browser. Downloaded IE7 which would not even load. So I decided that I had a problem with my PC. I backed up the system to a DVD and re-formatted the Hard Disc and re-installed Windows XP (Home Edition) and all the software I needed. I initially went back to True Image V8 but today I installed V9 over the top of it. True Image version 9 works fine, it loads ok, it is not slow and there are more features over version 8 and it all works.
    Initially I thought that I had wasted my money but now I am pleased with the upgrade.

    Hope this helps.

    Lots of problems posted about V8 too. Nature of a support forum.

    You don't have a reason to upgrade if V8 does everything you want it to and there is no new feature in V9 you want. However, the reality is sooner or later you'll get some new hardware and you'll have to upgrade.

    If you want a reason to upgrade, V9 does Files and Folders backup, V8 doesn't. I don't use Files and Folders backup but it is a reason if you are looking for one (to have the latest version).:D
