After using Acronis 6 and 7 for a number of years which has done the job for me, I decided to purchase ATI 2009 several weeks ago. Plan to purchase Windows 7 when it hits the market. Presently running XP Home SP3. Installed 2009 and then updated to latest . this thing has corrupted Xp to the point of wiping drive and reinstalling XP. I cannot believe Acronis would put out a piece of software as quirky as 2009. Backup software is one of the most important programs a person can have on their PC. Maybe---just maybe Acronis will build a new version and send to all who have purchased it. If not Acronis may not be around much longer.
