Acronis and Vista

Posted: 08-28-2008, 04:51 PM
My 100Gb laptop drive is getting crowded and I am going to upgrade to a 250.

Previously with my desktop, I used Acronis to do a full backup to a USB
drive, made a bootable CD rom with USB drivers, replaced the existing
drive with the 250, and booted up from the CD. At that point I was able
to do a full restore from the USB connected drive and have had zero
problems.

I would like to follow the same procedure with my laptop and wondered if
anyone has followed this procedure with success. Is Acronis 10
compatable with Vista?

TIA

You really want TrueImage HOME 11 (latest version please).

Version 10 had a few issues as far as I can remember.

Also, just do a disk copy (clone disk - in disk utilities) from your present
hard drive to the new drive. Then swap out the drives. Vista will find the
new drive and you will likely have to reboot. From there it should be OK.

There are those of us who had bad experiences with Acronis 11 on Vista.
Do your homework and choose wisely.

Acronis 10 works fine for this, as long as you use the last update. The
original release had a few issues. My Acronis is Build 4942. I haven't
looked lately so there may or may not be a later one, but this is fine for
Vista.
