    I am going to get True Image 9 Workstation for work use, but will it be OK to use it on my home PC or would True Image Home 10 be better, forgetting about the cost (I will be backing up to an Integral USB drive at home). Is there much difference apart from the networking and is the workstaion as easy to use.

    If I back up my C drive which is about 20g, what size roughly will the backup file be as I need to know how much space I will need on the USB drive or will TI tell me if there is not enough room

    Estimate the backup file to be about 60% of the used space on the 20 gig drive.

    For your home use, if you not running RAID or anything, I would go with the new True Image Home 10 instead. Of course with the 9.1 you also have the universal restore option you can get which would allow you to restore your image to a different hardware configuration in addition to the same one it was made from.
