I'm still at v2009. Skipped 2010, but am pondering 2011. Any caveats? What do you miss?

Not familiar with cloneHD.

Did you only have one HD to begin with?

Could be the disk ID.
If so , running startup repair from 7 dvd should fix it.

Paragon's free program looks pretty decent, and even has a scheduler. Which one of these do you use?

I use this, it's not cheap, tho. Paragon Hard Disk Manager for Virtual Server - Overview

The clone function is on other ( less esoteric ) Pargon apps, too - dunno if it's on the free one.

I've been using Acronis TI since 2004. It really serves my purposes, but they're just so hit and miss. Skipped 2010 since it was so buggy. Investigating 2011.

Yes, it's on the free version, but the free version is missing some features (of course), of which one is 64 bit support, but that can be found in the 'Personal version', which is only $10 (but, as one might expect for that price, still missing some features). 'Pro' version is $80.

Did you try plugging in only the cloned HD and running startup repir?

Might take 2 or 3 runs.

The performance of 2011 is a little better, I am just adjusting to a new menu layout is all. Another new feature is the Acronis tab in the disk properties window

I'd installed windows XP about 3 months ago because of a faulty RAM, and now would like to switch back to Windows 7. And now I have only 512 MB of RAM left. So, my question is that will windows 7 handle 512 MB perfectly or will it run slowly?
