I believe that only the Acronis True Image Home v10 is Vista compatible.
Yes - and it should be Build 4942 (Released Mar 12, 2007) or higher, too.
i downloaded it from Acronis on April 28, 2007, but don't know the build (should've been the latest) since i'm done with Acronis. After True Image 10 made the image...to a partition on the HD, it rebooted and my computer said 'no' after BIOS ran. It never offered to put the image on a CD or DVD, just the HD. The HD was not bootable after that, which took time to correct. Maybe it had something to do with the SATA HD, but i don't care any more since Vista Ultimate solved the problem of restoring my HD if ever needed (from a DVD
). Acronis gave my money back, but at first their support only offered a choice of other products (their 'Home Products'...of which i had already bought the 3-Pak special, which left 2 to choose from) as a fix for Disk Director not working...no solutions, just an offer. i was nuts to even try True Image 10 after that, but was searching for a way to re-install my entire computer, so gambled.
Anyway, Vista Ultimate was well worth the $399, and solved the problems involved in doing re-installs - of DATA, settings, and programs like Virus Protection, Diskeepers, Adobe, Office, Roxio, PC-Doctor, wireless 'stuff', printers, etc. - after doing a re-install of the OS. i'm sure Acronis will fix any problems that they are having under Vista, but i didn't want to wait. Software companies are looking for ways to stop piracy, even if it means 'questioning' or stopping you about a re-install or a new install. Diskeeper Corp. recently stopped my last install of it...don't ask me how they knew?!? i downloaded PC-Doctor from Lenovo support, and tried to install it on my eMachine...it 'sorta' installed, but the program spotted that it wasn't a Lenovo, and basically did a uninstall...don't ask me?!? i installed Vista Ultimate the same day that i bought it, and the 'Product Key' didn't work...from there i was sent to some 'Voice' phone number that said the new numbers on my computer screen were wrong (9-groups of five or six numbers each) and from there to a real human (in India probably), who gave me another 9-group of five or six numbers to punch in...it worked after that. Only 1 of the two computers with Vista on them came with a disk...Vista Basic. i did several re-installs with it, and the 'Product Key' didn't work (see above steps that followed)...did a downgrade to Basic from the Vista Premium on the Lenovo, just to get rid of Lenovo Care and their Rescue & Recovery. Microsoft, if you are watching...is a downgrade or re-install considered piracy?
The Vista Ultimate's DVD image restored my whole computer, on a new HD, but didn't allow the restore to restore the activation part. How did they do THAT?!?
