Windows 7: Upgrade Advisor and acronis true image11 issue

There is an upgrade for Acronis; it's Acronis TIH 2010. Runs fabulously on W7. I love it both for making clones and scheduled compressed full and incremental image backups. 2010 has a lot of new features and the old ones are improved.

I understand there is an upgrade to the 2010 :but that means i'll have to pod out £24, I could understand if it was an early addition of ATI ;but the 11 version is not that old

Most companies work hard to make their products compatible with new OS and some drag their feet, maybe deliberately to gain more sales i don't know. I have emailed ATI and await there response.

You are correct ATI 11 isn't that old. You know what's a drag? ATI 2010 wasn't the next one released after 11, ATI Home 2009 snuck in there. So Acronis has released two versions since ATI 11 came out and, although you can get an upgrade discount, they aren't free upgrades for ATI 11 owners. That sucks IMHO.

I, too, emailed ATI a few weeks ago and since I had just purchased Home 2009 upgrade from ATI 11, they gave me ATI Home 2010 for around $20. I took the deal because I need ATI for a couple people who frequently come to me to get their system imaged back to the copy I keep for them.

I've had good success with ATI 11 but the main thing that bugs me is the 4 processes they run in the background. Very low resource use but they bug me. Three out of 4 can be disabled with something like CCleaner (or msconfig). For that (quirky) reason, I mainly use Acronis from a bootable flash drive and don't even install it.

@SIW2, I installed the Paragon 10 free and don't see where it runs anything in the backgound. Only launcher.exe and it's child plauncher_s.exe when you launch the program. I like that.

I enthusiastically concur with the Macrium suggestion. I tested both its create image and its restore image under Win7 a month ago and was duly impressed with its feature sets and ease of use.

In my case I created the system image on an external hard drive and Macrium's included Linux restore disc was able to locate and use both an external hard drive and a USB flash drive as its restore source. My previous experience with Acronis was that it did not include drivers able to see USB flash drives or external hard drives, thus mandating a need to create a WinPE restore disk or opting for the extremely painful option to store the images on DVD (from what I have seen from my tests with the latest version of Acronis TI, this is still the case).

These days I am using a Windows Home Server to daily image all my network-attached computers, but if I had to return to an installed software option it would be Macrium.
