Hello, As i am a new user of TI and this forum (aprox 3 months) , and am aware that there is no "shortage" of complaints from "TI" users. That being said, i would like to share my TI story. First my pc/system is pretty much a plain jane HP pavilon a6167c desk top, with two internal hard drives (hitachi sata) and two cd/dvd -RW optical drives (HP). The "OS" is Vista home premium SP-1.(nuff said) Due to my own "fooling" with "Nero-7 trial" that came with my second CD/DVD RW optical drive i could not remove "bits and pieces" of it no matter how much deleting /unlocking etc. that i did (really ticked me off). in a moment of exasperation i decided to do a "full system restore" I selected the "image" that i wanted, clicked through, and let Acronis do its thing. A short time later.... done back up and running, no "Nero" (just had to do some program updating) Then i selected some "files" from another backup in the "ASZ" ran that, and it worked perfectly also. The bottom Line. With so many different "PC's and software " combos" i'm truly amazed that "TI" works at all. All i can say is with the aforementioned system is Acronis TI-11 8101 WORKS! YEE-HA! Regards Plain Fred.
