Windows 7: Acronis Disk Director 11 Home Upgrade

Acronis Disk Director 11 Home Upgrade

I'm considering buying this upgrade, because I liked version 10 on XP. Unfortunately, that is not compatible with Windows 7. Two questions comes to mind...1. Will it be installed totally separate from the previous version, or must the old version be used also? 2. Does this truly work as well on Windows 7 x64 as it did before?

I have been using Acronis on my windows 7 64bit ultimate machine and have restored a few times from the image.

I like version 10 but have upgraded to version 11 on a couple of other machines.

Some like it, some don't.

I don't believe that you can have both versions on the same machine to be able
to use either..

When you speak of backing up from an image, you are talking about True Image, not Disk Director, which I'm asking about.

My experience with Acronis product upgrades has been that the upgrade is a complete, stand-alone version of the product. The version being upgraded from does not need to be installed.

I haven't tried the new version of Disk Director yet so I don't know if it fully supports Win 7 x64.

TI Disk Director 11 is a very nice upgrade and you do not need to have the prior version installed; when you install version 11 it will ask you for the serial, when you input the version 11 serial the installer will then ask you for the serial of the prior version. Input that serial and then it is off to the races.

Hope this helped answer your question
