    Have tried versions 9 & 10 and each are buggy
    10 wont restore 8 images, and 9 wont burn direct to dvd

    Question:
    Will version 10 restore from an image copied to dvd (via Nero) as opposed to a direct creation using INCD (packet writing)??

    What build of TI 9 were you trying? The later versions can burn directly to dvd unless there is a specific hardware problem.

    TI 9 & 10 should be able to restore backup images burned by Nero. A lot of people do this because it's faster to backup to a hard drive and then burn the files on dvd with Nero than it is to let TI burn directly. Also they generally get a more controlled burn (you can set the speed, etc.) so it tends to be more reliable. For some, it's the only way they can get the backup on dvd. Then to restore quickly, they just copy the files from the dvd(s) back to the hard drive and restore from there.

    INCD and other packet writing program often conflict with TI. I don't think TI supports packet writing, but I'm not sure. A regular ISO or UDF cd is better and accessible on any standard computer.

    TI 9. 3677 ver
    and it would NOT bu direct to DVD's (tried 3)

    TI 10 latest build would NOT restore images written from TI 8 (on a HD)

    My question was: will TU restore from images copied to DVD using nero?

    As I said in the previous post, TI should be able to restore backup images burned with Nero.

    Also, TI 10 should restore TI 8 images. As far as I know, the later versions are backwards compatible with the prior ones. You may want to send a support request to Acronis if it's not working for you.

    If you're getting any specific error messages it would help if you posted them. Also your computer specifications would be helpful (CPU, RAM, motherboard brand/model, OS, etc.)

    @naddude

    I have owned every version since v. 6, you can use any program you want to burn your image to DVD. If acronis restore can SEE the image, and you are restoring with the same or later version that created the image it will work just fine. I've done it for years. TI 9.1 b3887 and above WILL burn directly to DVD without packet writing software. I've never tried it with any earlier versions of TI so I can't speak from personal knowledge there.

    Workstation is the corporate version. Look at the product page for each and it will list the features acordingly.

    My setup restores an INCD/TI10 DVD but so far only by using the XP repair console ("bootcfg /rebuild" does the job). This INCD/TI10 DVD can be placed in any equal sized or bigger partition but only using the Stand Alone Version of TI10. So perhaps TI10/INCD is incompatible on many (most or all?) machines, as MudCrab noted.

    EDIT: After looking over my notes TI10/INCD DOES restore from WITHIN Windows when restoring to the EXACT same partition the image was created from, on my machine (a repair console visit was still needed to recover the partition).

    From my expectations of TI10 a repair console visit is an "incompatibility", but an operation that I have learned to accept from using it so often using DD10.

    Hello everyone,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    We are sorry for the delayed response.

    Would like to correct bwana's reply.

    Please be aware that the old builds of Acronis True Image 9.0 Home (3567 and lower) doesn’t write to DVD directly, instead it utilizes third party UDF packet DVD writing software. Starting with the build 3625 Acronis True Image (both Home and Corporate versions) includes direct DVD writing ability (no third party software needed). You can find more information on how to write your images to DVD in this FAQ article.

    Would also like to mention that as MudCrab said, the current version of Acronis True Image support image archives created with older or special editions of the program. However, please keep in mind that the backups created by the later program version may be incompatible with the previous program versions.

    As for the differences between Acronis True Image 10.0 Home (the new version of Acronis True Image Home) and Acronis True Image 9.1 Workstation, the main difference is that the latter provides you with the ability to manage backup\recovery process remotely. Generally, Acronis True Image 9.1 Workstation is meant for use in business and networked environments allowing IT staff to manage backup tasks and protect employee laptops and desktops throughout the organization from one central location. In addition, you can find this version comparison page useful.

    Should you experience a problem with using Acronis True Image, please feel free to post any of them on this forum or submit a request for technical support. Describe the actions taken before the problem appears step-by-step, let us know about error messages you have received (if any) and we will do our best in order to provide you with a possible solution.

    Thank you.
