    I am a very happy and contented user of True Image 10 and 11 (Home Version).

    They seem to work great for my needs.

    I am wondering if there are any issues with TI 2009 versus the tried and true TI 11 Home?

    I see that they are both available on Amazon at the moment. :)

    Just becasue one verson works on your hardware does not mean that a subsequent versin will. So yo should definitely take advantage of the free trial.

    ATI 12/2009 works osmewhat diff than prior versions, especially with regard to automation so moveing to 12/2009 might not be worthwhile. Of the three version 10, 11, and 12/2009, 11 had the most (never fixed or yet-to-be-fixed) bugs followed by 12/2009. So test before you hand over any money.

    I certainly agree with this. I've purchased ATI 9, 10, and 11. (Never did use 11 at all because of the bugs).

    All I use is the just the Boot CD to make FULL Images with. After I make the Boot-CD's, I usually just remove the program. So in reality, all I've paid for... is the .ISO File. I wish I could just purchase the .ISO file to make the Boot-CD for ATI 2009. :cautious:

    Hello starsfan09,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis True Image

    If you want to use only the standalone version of Acronis program, you should be an owner of the license in any case.

    Thank you.

    I don't think I understand how you use the Boot-CDs...

    I use ATI 10,11 and Echo work station and I make a "Rescue CD" that I can boot from, but I still need to use my "*.tib" archive file on my USB drive to actually restore the image.

    Aren't there ways to make a bootable CD without actually purchasing ATI? :)
