This is interesting ...
But I wonder what will happen if you boot to an archive that has a nasty Virus in it ???

And .. Can you boot to an Archive made in a different computer ??

Windows 7 Professional (final) x64

@toyo: Sorry, I didn't mean the TI Home Edition!! I said "B&R", meaning the "Backup & Restore Workstation 10" business edition! That is what interests me in terms of differences.

@noyb: As far as I know you can't use/boot an archive from a different (in hardware) computer until you use the TI Workstation 9 / Backup & Restore Workstation (10) version with Universal Restore 10. Because without Universal Restore even the B&R WS edition won't help. That is why I paid a lot of money for the TI 9 Workstation + UR 9 in the past! Because I wanted to have this feature...while I still haven't implemented it all. *omg* (And now I have insoluble problems again. )

At best you try to get a sales agent on the phone if you need a specific solution!
That is also what I did at one point (and might do again now as the v.10 is out).

Concerning the virus issue, I'm not sure what would happen, but expect the worst case! Although it is hard, what was said to me: "If you've got that problem, you have the wrong (/none?) backup strategy, dude!" That is what we have to admit then - and think again! :) So if anyone wants to collaboratively develop a best practice backup strategy...

Nah, my mistake, was too tired to see all text :)
I never used the Business edition, was too damn pricey and didn't bring improvements as i only need it for my 2 to 4 computers Homegroup.
Still, the technology in ATI Home should exist in better form in Business&Enterprise editions (although I can't spot Online Backup in the feats, but hey, if it's a damn network it's gotta have a speedy NAS).
But you gotta admit, compared to the kinda stuff today apps push as improvements from version to version, ATI managed to bring a lot of useful new features from 2009 to 2010.

Windows 7 Professional (final) x64

toyo, no problem at all, indeed your comment is very important to me! :)
I'm in the same setting as you and I'll think twice if I'll spend another $69 on upgrading for Acronis "B&R" + UR although I think it is great! Only now just there is some problem with the backup source although there shouldn't be and in general I'm totally unsure about their strange licencing! How do they define server and why is there no real S(M)B solution?

Why's your comment so valuable to me? As I also have only four machines (1 NAS, 1 desktop, 1 laptop (will stay with one even if I've got more money) and soon 1 small-size shuttle "server"). Are there any usable, valuable network feature in the Home Edition that would suffice for sparing me the investment into the upgrades?
Additionally for me I see a lot of reason to even upgrade to the advanced version for I think $20-30 more, just I won't do this any further year whatsoever!
I'll just to put it in place this time properly and will have it running some years.

Thanks - and if you like I'd love to talk with you about a proper backup strategy! :)

Acronis users - Upgrade to Acronis Home 2011
Hi there For current Acronis users the upgrade to 2011 IMO is well worth the small price (approx 25 EUR). New USB 3.0 support, direct conversion of .tib into .vhd files (great for P2V and V2P conversions of Virtual Machines) plus all the other stuff you would expect from a robust backup...
