While you can use the emergency rescue CD to backup/recover a Vista partition, TrueImage 9.x has known compatibility issues with Vista that cause significant instability.
My Granddaughter got the program, Acronis true Image 9.0 from one of her collage class mates and asked me if I wanted it as she will never use it. It is new still in the package with the key code.
I have looked on the net and can't seem to find if that program will work with Vista.
I see where version 11 will.
Has anyone tried using the 9.0 version on Vista?
