Did you use Revo , or system restore?

Have fun with the install.

Windows 7 Professional x86

I used system restore in the end because Revo was running the Acronis uninstaller which was what was being difficult .

All sorted now though. Installed the iso but just sorting out my files between partitions now before I have a play with it . Hopefully it will all run smoothly!

Thanks for all your help!

So, aside from Acronis OS Selector, is it safe/ok to use the suite software (disk director or true image for example) within the Windows 7 environment or would we be better off using some of the other software suggested above.

Currently I am triple booting, primarily I started out with XP and all the Acronis software. Now I want to make the switch to make 7 my primary OS and perhaps get rid of XP in the near future.

Win 7 RTM 7600 Ultimate 64-bit

I text chatted with an Acronis rep since I have Disk Director on my XP image. I asked about a Win7 version; but one does not exist yet. He indicated that I should be able to install the XP version and it should work.

After reading this thread I am pretty hesitant to do so!

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional X64

Anyone know if or when Acronis will issue an update for this software? Or are they going to abandon it? I just bought it about two months ago and have had major issues with the Windows 7 64 bit build. Even trying to wipe a USB drive from Windows 7 is a no no. I have checked their site for information and they are absolutely quiet about what they are doing or where they are going with Acronis Disk Director. I should have tried the trial first I guess.

Disk director suite has not been updated since 2007. Surely they will be releasing a new suite to work with 7. I hope so anyways.

Acronis True Image has just been updated to Home 2010.
It now supports Windows 7 and some other features have been added.
One I think might be interesting is the ability to Boot from a backup image.

I usually Partition my Drives with Acronis True Image as I build them up from a backup Image.
Haven't used Disc Director in a long time.

Speaking of Acronis maybe someone can answer this.

I am triple booting 7, XP, & Leopard.

I started out initially with XP and have been using Acronis products to do all my partitioning and HD tuning plus the included OS selector for bootup.

My question is will I have a problem if I use Acronis within XP to resize my partition for 7?

My current partitions are in this order from the beginning of the disc:

'XP' 150GB Primary --> '7' 50GB Primary --> 'Leopard' 50GB Primary --> Data 750GB Logical

I want to shrink the 'XP' partition and add the excess over to the '7' partition. As you can see they are side by side.
