    Hi there,
    I bought TI8 on CD a few months ago, it was Build 768. I then updated using the download for Build 826. I have since made a few backup Images.

    My question is, if I boot from the TI8 CD (Build 76:cool:, will it be able to restore images made with the newer version (Build 826)?

    The same question goes for the latest build (I have not yet downloaded it).

    There's probably 2 general questions here for Acronis:
    a) which versions and builds are compatible?
    - that is, for images made by any particular version/build, which previous versions/builds can use those images?

    b) should we always make a new boot CD when we update TI to a newer build?

    IIRC, the "quick" answers are:

    a) New builds of TI version 8 are backward compatible with previously created version 8 images. I'm not sure about version 8 backward compatibility with images created with version 7.

    b) Recommendation has been to make a new boot CD for each new build.

    ...other forum members may weigh in with the "hard and fast" answers :)
