Windows 7: Buying A New Hard Drive

Windows Vista Home Premium -> Windows 7 Home Premium
 
 

^^^ That's the one! I believe it will only work if you have a WD drive hooked up on your system. By the way, if you have a Seagate drive, the Acronis True Image software is available free from them also.

The WD version of Acronis has no time limitations.

It does have cloning, but can't do scheduled or incremental images, which might be important to some people (not me).

The primary limitation is that you can restore ONLY to WD drives.

You can make an image of any brand drive--but you can restore ONLY to WD.

I assume the Seagate version has a similar limitation.

Seven is supported.
