Quote from Acronis e-mail: Dear Acronis True Image Customer, Happy Holidays from all of us at Acronis! Haven't upgraded to the new Acronis True Image 10 Home yet? Upgrade today and get a FREE 1-year Upgrade Protection plan! If you buy the Upgrade from this e-mail during the Holiday Season (limited time offer) you will receive all future major product upgrades for one year from the date of the purchase FOR FREE! Save $29.99 on the next Upgrade and stay updated! I'm a ATI 8 and 9 owner and regard it as my most basic defense against anything (even my own stupidity). What are the chances of acronis making the "backup to DVD" a smoothe no brainer? I have no new hardware and both TI 8 and 9 work fine except for the DVD thing which i haven't even tried due to the many laborious posts. Anyway I'm pondering the purchase due to the year of free upgrades (TI 11 ?). I don't throw out cash for the fun of it but TI is my most basic defense (go back in time!) tool. Worth it or not?
