I'm currently using Novastor InstantRecovery to provide partition level backups on my WinXP Home SP2 system. Unfortunately it does not support SATA HDs and, as I am about to upgrade my drives to SATA, I'm looking for an alternative. I have read the spec on 'Acronis True Image 9 Home' which looks ideal so I have downloaded the trial version to check it out before buying. Unfortunately every time I try to install it I get the error "Failed to register the product. Please try again later". Looking through some of the threads on this forum I have tried all the suggestions (I have no proxies set in IE6 and I've turned off WinXP's firewall. Still no joy. Does anyone have a solution to this problem? Thanks in advance.
