    I have been happily using TI 8 and would like to change to TI 9 if its reliability issues have been addressed. Have I waited long enough? Think of it as a poll. Thanks!

    Yes - change to TI 9
    or
    No - stay with TI 8

    I am useing TI9-3666 and it has worked flawlessly so far. It backed up to DVD with no problem.

    bigc

    but everyones experiences are bound to vary a bit because of the difference in the setup of the different computers. software/hardware. But it is working well here.

    mu30286,

    Thanks for the pointer. Looks like the current version of TI 9 still has some problems. On the plus side, TI 8 is solid. I see no reason to use an old version of TI 9 on the hopes that it is better than the current version of TI 9. I will just stay with TI 8. Moan!

    I can't go back to TI 8,not because I don't want to. I bought Acronis TI 9 build 2337 in January 2006, TI 9 still has a lot of problems. I am tolally new to backup software, I Think since there is SO many problems they should come out with a entirely new build number after they overhaul TI 9, not just a refreshed version.

    Same as bigc73542 - no problems with 9 (3666) which I have tried on 4 different set ups.

    Versions following 2323 made restoring very slow on one machine but this was resolved by 3666.

    If 8 works ( and I still have one machine using 8 and one using 7) then make a system image and try 9. If it works then use 9 - if there are serious issues then go back to 8 or 7 and wait for the next build of 9.

    I have only been using TI since version 6 but every so often Acronis issue a build which has issues for me but these issues are normally resolved in the next build or the one after that.

    There should be a new build soon so that, at a minimum, the Task editor can be fixed so that it can edit image tasks.
    Other than that, 3666 seems better than previous versions, even improving DVD backup, at least for some.

    Haven't tried TI9, I have had no problems with TI8. I figure if it aint broke don't fix it.

    After Acronis tests TI 9 making sure is works solidly, then they can issue a new build to clear the air (so to speak)

    The rescue media disc I created with 3666 worked very well when I booted with it to make sure it worked :thumb:

    I had restoration problems with Version 8 and 9 (trial). I really like the program and as soon as it runs properly, I will buy it again.
