After reading of the problems with Ti 9 it appears that Acronis does not have a Beta testing group of users who probably would have highlighted most of the problems so Acronis could fix them before releasing the new version. There are some very knowledgable users posting on this forum who would volunteer for such an effort and would be very helpful. Payment could be a "FREE" copy of the new version once it is released. What say you Acronis? Phil B.
