    I have been a happy user of TI since version 1.0 and am currently using v9.0.

    Can anyone give me a compare and constrast of v9.0(home) and v9.1 (workstation). I was unable to find this info on the web site.

    In other words, what is in 9.1 that isn't in 9.0.

    Thanks

    well ATI 9.0 Home is for the consumer market and ATI 9.1 Workstation is for corporate clients.

    the main reason to use ATI Workstation is for its ability to perform remote back up and restore over a network. It also supports the Acronis Universal Restore add-on.

    Thanks for your reply.

    And additionally it supports SMTP notifications ? Is that right? This is something which would have been nice in 9.0 Home, but I'm not sure the price differential justifies that one feature.

    yea. the user guide mentions nothing of email notifications, so it must be for their ATI corporate products only.

    Hello foghorne,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Remote Workstation Disk Backup Software.

    We are very sorry for the delay with the response.

    Please be aware that, as WSFuser has already mentioned above, the main difference between Acronis True Image 9.0 Home and Acronis True Image 9.1 Workstation is that the latter provides you with the ability to manage backup\recovery process remotely.
