I bought True Image Home 2009 and have been making images and it works great. However, I now learned I can't restore them on new hardware if I ever have to change motherboards. I understand that to do that requires True Image Echo Workstation with Universal Restore. My question is, if and when I need to restore to new hardware, can I use an image created in True Image Home 2009 but use True Image Echo Workstation and Universal Restore to restore it? Or does the image have to be actually created in Echo Workstation to work? I'm hoping that I can keep making images with Home 2009 and if and when I need to restore to new hardware, I could purchase Echo Workstation and Universal Restore at that time and restore the image made in Home 2009 to the new hardware? This would allow me to continue backing up as I am, secure that I won't have to do a clean install and try to get back all my little tweaks and settings if I ever suddenly need a new motherboard. Or do I have to actually start making my images now in Echo Workstation? I have talked to support people about this before and got two different answers. One said it doesn't matter what program the image is made with, only which one it is restored with. The other said I have to actually make the image in Echo Workstation for it to be usable with Universal Restore. Can you please clarify this?
