    If ATI 11 works on your hardware and you can work around the bugs then stay with 11 and save the money. But version 11 is widely regarded at Acronis's most buggy version, see numerous threads here.

    ATI 2009 cures lots of bugs see link. This link lists the bugs that Acronis CLAIM to have fixed.

    http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/support/updates/release-notes/trueimage.html

    BUT it introduces new bugs and drops some features.

    So there is no perfect version. Users with newer harder have been forced to go with the newer versions so that their hardware is supported.

    Download the trial and try it for yourself.

    I don't think you can get better advice on this question that what jehosophat has offered.

    Having said that, I will add as a footnote that, if ATI 11 and 12 present problems for you and your hardware was not first issued in the last couple of years, then try version 10 if you can find it -- alas this last relativley unbuggy version of ATI is no longer in release from Acronis but you can still find vendors here and there that still offer it.

    Note that this is on the site where you sign up:
    "Please be aware that the product installation package is not published on Acronis Web Site. It can only be obtained from a CD included in your copy of Personal Computer World magazine.

    Please also note that support for Acronis True Image 10 Personal Edition is provided only through Acronis Knowledge Base and public forums."

    That makes it less useful unless you already have the disk that came with the magazine.
