    I just downloaded and installed the Acronis 9 update.

    1) Now all I have to do is make a boot disc, is that right?

    2) Will the updated Acronis 9 read an image made by an older version?

    If that's two "yeses" coming, I'm in good shape.

    I would say that creating a bootable rescue CD is mandatory. If the image was of the system partition/disk, or the OS/system disk went tits up, then there would be no way of restoring the image without the boot rescue CD.

    Regards

    Thanks a lot for the info. I see the reason for the bootable CD and am happy to know that my updated TI9 will restore a TI8 image.

    Hello mens_sana,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    We are sorry for the delayed response.

    Please note that we recommend you to create a new Acronis True Image Bootable Rescue Media, because each new build brings such improvements as better hardware support etc.

    Also please note that the latest version Acronis True Image 9.0 Home is able to restore all the images created using any previous version of the product. However, since the new version is based on a new "engine" the opposite operation is not possible.

    Thank you.
