Upgrade Advisor and acronis true image11 issue

Hi my first post here, having read through this topic i think most of my concerns have been answered. I have not yet installed win7 an kinda torn between creating a partition and installing there so i have both vista and 7 , or just doing an upgrade?or a clean install.( still deciding).


Thankyou

Having run the upgrade advisor it tells me that my acronis true image11 will not work does anyone know if there is a work around for this. Bit peeved as it was i first line of defence

Regards

I was torn myself between a upgrade or clean install of 7 myself, I just used Acronis 10 and made a clone of my current Vista 64Bit Ultimate and put it on one of my 3 1TB Hds, I then decided to go ahead and do a upgrade instead of a Clean install , I really did not want to reinstall all my programs..It took about 1Hr and 30 Minutes for the upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate to take place and all my programs worked perfectly, no errors of any kind, system is very zippy, I still have vista setting on the other HD just in case there is a disaster, but for now I am glad I did the upgrade and not the clean install......

Hi rsinbad,

You could use Paragon Drive Backup and Recovery 10 - it's free and it works beautifully on 7.

Not to minimize SIW2's suggestion (because I think he's got me convinced to switch from Acronis to Paragon) but Acronis TI 11 will install in W7 so you could uninstall it before your upgrade and then reinstall it.

Yes,

I installed ATI 11 on 7. I just prefer the Paragon - it is also officially 7 compatible.

vista
 
 

Thanks guy's my initial worries were that if i had done the upgrade rather than the clean install, i would after that not be able to do the clean install.Having read through the method of clean install thats no longer a problem.

I have used acronis TI for several years and allway's given me peace of mind. Bit annoyed that acronis have not offered an update for this (maybe they will?)

I have made full backups of my existing vista just incase Will i be able to mount these images in win7 to retreive data?

If i reinstall ATI onto win7 will it fully function as i would want to make an initial backup of win7?

I would like to keep ATI ;but only if i can be sure it works, if there is then perhaps paragon is the way to go

I am using Paragon 10 and its working good. Question to You...after you installed ATI11 on your Win7 could you then run it?

It runs OK. I hardly use it though.

Paragon is less resource intensive and is a better app. imo.

I also have Macrium (free Edition). If I want to make an image really quickly - I use Macrium . On highest priority it the fastest you can get - and considering the speed, cpu usage is low - lower than Acronis and considerably faster.

Both of those are more "efficient" than Acronis. The Paragon doesn't have a way of increasing priority/speed. I use Paragon mostly - just use Macrium if I want a backup image really fast. It's also tiny.

Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download

The Paragon Drive Backup and Recovery 10 is also free of course - and has a lot more features than Macrium free edition.
