    I have been using computers equipped with PATA hard disks. I am very happy with the performance of Acronis TI. Now, I am planning to buy a computer. All Dell computers (XP Pro) are sold with SATA hard disks. I am wondering how Acronis works on SATA HD for backup and restore.

    My SATA drives work very well. Issues with TI and drives depend more on the motherboard chipset and the Linux support for it than the type of drive. SATA drives have been around roughly since XP SP1 release or longer.

    I use TI 11 regularly with my IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad T-60, and all it has is a SATA drive. I clone that drive to an external SATA drive through an eSATA PCMCIA link - never a problem. You just have to get used to SATA drives being called "SCSI" by Acronis. :)

    CorkyG: Read one of your posts "I, as a cloner and not a backer-upper". I would like to become a cloner instead of a backer-upper also but need to educate myself about image files etc. Could you suggest some good sites with good reading about learning cloning?
