    Hi,

    I have been using 2012/13 b&r Free for a while and haven't installed it yet (recently purchased). Hoping I don't have any issues recovering files/image from this version to the new full blown version (as well as being able to do an image restore to new hardware from existing 2013 image version. I didn't see any thread on this just yet.

    Thanks in advance,

    Mike

    I have ran into problems once or twice when restoring with a different year. I'm not sure if it was my fault or what. Those couple of times I was able to restore successfully when I used the same year restore disk from when the archive year was created. I had to reinstall the old program and make a restore disk at the time. I now keep a restore boot disk from each year upgrade just in case. I'm sure it is all supposed to be backward compatible but having a few extra CD's from past years takes up no room at all. I also make duplicates on DVD's and CD's. I never know if the laptop I am working on is so old that is only reads CD's.
