    While I even think that this question may sound crazy :rolleyes: , there are questions rolling around my noggin ! Me being absolutely new to all the Acronis Software Programs dose not help one bit - I figure !

    Is there or could there be a side by side comparison, why would I be escorted to the True Image 10 Software not 4 days before 11's release ?

    Is or will there be anymore updates for 10 now that 11 is released (ie. is 10 useful or really walked over by Version 11) ?

    I purchased the Special offer :cool: for True Image and Disk Director Suite, and used the Disk Director, and let me tell you I was blown away at the programs proficiency absolutely blown away :eek: !!!!!!

    I hate when this happens ( a total upgrade/ this Prog. or another ) and know I am not alone in these field of thoughts, should I do it - should I wait and see if it causes Havoc or goes smoothly - whats the dif - is it that much better ? ( just look at all the Vista compatability issues that arose when it was released )
    What am I talkin about, I paid, good money too - I should want the upgrade hmmmm (and I did submit a Support inquirey after not hearing back from Customer Support), let me go to the Forum and see if there posts about problems or wrinkles where now an 'update' is or has to be implemented . {='S Yup not alone, just like I had thought}

    One thing I know is these are specialty programs , in disk management, and if this or these mess up - there we go again wit the full recovery - from scratch !!! I'm not tryin ta sound like I'm putting the Program down - nope/nothing like that - far from that - but would like sound advice so these thoughts in my search to do whats best for My Computer are put to rest !

    Say Everyone , Dah , forgot to introduce myself as a new member here, forgive Me and Hello to all, I'm R_D , new to the Forum !

    You'll have to read the Forum messages and decide for yourself if the problems being encountered in Version 11 are going to affect you. There is a Try & Decide feature.

    Why they changed the name from simply Trial version as it was in version 10 and earlier is typical of Acronis.

    If you have purchased TI 10 within 30 days prior to the release of TI 11 you are entitled to a free upgrade to TI 11, if this is the case I would claim the free upgrade to TI 11, search this forum for similar threads and you will find exactly how to claim the upgrade. Register TI 11 on the Acronis site (you have registered TI 10?) and wait for the next build of TI 11 to be released. If you want to install TI 11 (present build) make a image of your system disk prior to installing TI 11 just in case and keep the TI 10 rescue disk for future use should TI 11 not work as expected.

    I don't know if we are on the same wavelength but Try and Decide is not the replacement name for the Trial version. The TI Home page still says "Download Trial version".

    Try and Decide is:
    Test new software or browse the web in a protected, safe environment. At the end of the session, you decide whether to keep or discard the changes made to your system.

    ATI 10 is pretty stable and reliably but, like all software has some probs on some systems.

    ATI 11 is another matter but presumably a fixed build will be released jsut as ATI build 4292 was released about 3 or 4 months after the bothersome first release fo ATI 10. Generally, first breleased builds of ATI are things to avoid.

    There is some indication the another release of ATI 10 might be forthcoming. If so, I'd bet that it would be the last update.

    Personally, I don't see the added features in ATI 11 being of much value -- there are either other ways to accomplish the same thing or they way they aare implemented in ATI 11 isn't very useful -- for example, the try and decide feature only works for programs that don't require a reboot to be installed.

    Anyway, it's a very personal decision you will have to make.
