Has anyone had experience of this? Amazon says it is the latest. Latest is not always best!! Should I go for TI 11 or what?

I haven't tried the new one, but TI 11 is fine and you can probably get it cheaper now there is a new one out. Try Amazon

Acronis offered me a free upgrade to TI12 (2009) which I felt obliged to accept!
The user interface is entirely different from the earlier versions and they have added even more bells and whistles which I feel are un-necessary.
All I want is for the program to create a backup and restore same when required - no more no less - and as TI 11 did that with total success I would certainly have been more than happy to stick with that version had my freebie upgrade not come along.

Thank you, rawprawn & cocteau48

I'l go for TI 11. yes, Amazon is cheap @ £20.48.

I have just noticed that the Amazon price for TI 11 is not £20.48 but £25.26 after VAT!!

I got a download of TI 2009 from Acronis for £23.79 as follows.

Following JYPX's post on "Drive image software - which is best?" in the forum who said:-

"Don't forget that if you have a Maxtor or Seagate external drive, you can have a copy of Acronis True Image Home 10, free of charge.
I have tried it out - it works perfectly, and I have neither of the drives mentioned....!"

I downloaded the Maxtor version and was offered a discounted upgrade to 2009 by Acronis at the above price and am now well pleased (again) with the forum and its knowledgeable members.

I got a e-mail from TI about the new home. What I like in the new one is the ability to try software etc and if you do not like or it is a problem TI takes it back to as it was before. Works a bit like System Restore but better as this also works to remove all the file that was added and clears out the registry by putting the old one back
