Hello, I've had Acronis True Image for 1-2 months. I have used the software for the disk clone feature when using the same hardware, and for creating back up images. Seems to work okay for these purposes. The primary image and subsequent images that I have verified have tested okay, thus far. My concern is that in the event of hardware failure requiring a new system (hardware), is True Image the best best solution? My understanding is that when restoring/cloning a hard drive in a new system, you either need to do a disk repair after the restore/clone or need to run the Sysprep feature prior to the image creation/clone. I am running Win2000 and the repair feature was not accessible when booting from the Win2000 install disc. The OS "could not be found" and I was instructed to repair from a bootable floppy. I didn't have my repair floppy and gave up at this point. I did not run Sysprep on my "old" machine prior to the cloning. What does everyone else use TI for? Simply precaution for hard drive ONLY failure? Or are people using TI for installation of new hardware, with the Sysprep preparation? Can I get some opinions of using the Sysprep feature and does it really work when restore/cloning to new hardware? Will the Sysprep feature do any damage to the "old" machine? Thank you!
