    Tried the trial version of ATI 8.0.
    Tried to create a backup of the "C" partition, output size would have been
    around 2.3 gig. The program errored when it tried to write to my HLDS 16X
    Double-Layer Multi-Format drive. I was using a DVD+R CD.

    I have Ahead but it needed updating (done).
    I didnt see anything in Ahead about formatting a cd so didnt bother.
    I tried the image creation again and it worked with a CD-RW also verified it,
    its OK. Will try a backup of partition "C" onto a DVD+R since i updated Ahead.

    Now, This was using the Demo version of ATI. so if i buy it, will i have to buy
    the version due out this fall for 64-bit addressing or is it an update/upgrade?

    Thanks for the help,
    savagcl

    Hello savagcl,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Please be aware that the current version of Acronis True Image doesn’t write to DVD directly, instead it utilizes third party UDF packet DVD writing software.

    Please make sure that you have an appropriate UDF packet DVD writing software installed and all of your DVDs are properly UDF formatted according to this FAQ article.

    Let me know if the problem still persists.

    Thank you.

    I have it working (?) or at least verifying as OK.

    What about the upgrade vs buy part? (sorry, i know you're not sales).

    thank you,

    I would be very surprised if a Windows 64bit compatible True Image (Version ?) didn't come out as an upgrade rather than an update.

    Regards

    Hello savagcl,

    I'm sorry for misunderstanding your question. Let' blame it on the fact that I'm not a sales person :)

    Well, since the support for the 64-bit editions of Windows will be implemented in the next version of Acronis True Image (as well as many other new features), which is most likely will be called Acronis True Image 9.0, I'm afraid that everyone who ownes version 8.0 at the moment will need to purchase the upgrade to the newer version 9.0.

    Thank you.
