    I currently use Norton's Ghost and want to switch to Acronis True Image. I have a trial version of True Image 8 and have several questions.

    1. Ghost will allow for automatic verification of the daily backup image file that I create...I do not see a way to automate that with True there a way?

    2. I create a full image at noon each day and then one incremental image at 6:00pm each day. I thus have one full and one incremental file on my external backup drive. Each day at noon when the next full image is created, Ghost will automatically delete the previous days full and incremental image and replace them with the new current days full image file. True image seems to leave the incremental image file from the previous days backup when the new full image is created (it does delete the previous days full image). It only deletes the previous days incremental backup image when the next incremental backup image is run. Since the incremental image is associated with the full image, why wouldn't True Image delete it when it creates the next full image?

    3. Ghost has a viewer that allows you to view and then cut and paste lost or corrupted files back to your internal harddrive. Acronis seems to want you to create a virtual harddrive first before allowing you to do the same thing. Is there a simpler way to view the contents of an Acronis True Image file?
    Thanks for your quick response.
