P.S. It's cheaper from Amazon at £25. You may be able to find it cheaper still.

I thought the trial version would have been free?Do you have to pay for the trial version?

No, the trial version is free but limited to 15 days use. I assumed you may want to buy it after testing it.

Oh thanks.I will be buying it.I thought you meant you have to pay for the trial.Thanks.

I've installed acronis true image.I've selected to back up my computer as I wish to back up my whole C:drive which is an 80gb drive with 41gb free space.It's showing "size to back up" 34.45GB and asking if I want to do it sector by sector and back up unallocated space?Could anyone please tell me the best way to back up my C:drive to dvd's as I've never used this program before.Thanks.Ps how long should it take?

All you need choose is Full Backup and Create a Image

It's saying the back up location will be my documents/back ups.Will it create an image that I will then burn to dvd(s)with nero or something?
