ok now ive been using true image for quite sometime now. its a great software so good infact that when i upgraded to ti 10 i purchased 2 copies (one for my current system and another for a system i plan on building in the near future). now this is where the problem comes in. the system im currently building (its a work in progress). i plan on using sata drives exclusively as well as use vista when its released. my question is first and formost can i use ti with sata drives. ive heard rumors around a few boards that if all your hdd's are sata you can restore properly and sometimes not at all. is there any truth to this? 2 points that may be of importance to anybody that reads this is: 1: i always use dvd as my backup media. and 2: the drives i am going to be using are wd raptor sata drives. second question i noticed ti 10 now is vista capable (thats the reason for me getting the second copy). could somebody please clarify some? is it fully supported or are there still problems? the reason i ask that is ive seen it more often than not where softwares say "this" is caple or "that" is supported when its not totally true. any help would be greatly appreciated. thankx in advance. the c.e.o. p.s. in case its of any importance the ti builds i have are ti 10 home build 4871. and the modo im using for this system is an asus mobo im not sure of the model right of hand though but it does have onboard sata controller.
