I just bought Version 10 of both True Image and Disk Director. There are some issues with both when run from the installation on the hard drive, but they are relatively minor. Then, through True Image, I made a bootable CD with everything but the stuff related to different OSs, since I use only XP Pro. To test it, I rebooted and sure enough it booted and I chose Disk Director Full. It did not find the system hard drive, only my external USB backup drive. Makes it pretty useless for partioning a new drive for cloning, but OK. Here's the big issue. Shutting down Disk Director and rebooting gave a blank black screen. Nothing short of pulling the battery to clear the CMOS would fix it. Needless to say, I'm a little gun shy about Acronis's bootable recovery abilities. I didn't try the bootable True Image since I'm sure it won't find the system hard drive either. (I had a similar problem of losing the system hard drive from BOTH programs when connecting the external USB drive while XP was running.) Anyone else running into problems like this? The hard drive is a Western Digital SATA.
