Acronis TrueImage is a first class program and has never let me down. If you buy it in CD format be sure to register on their website and download the latest build which will contain updated drivers and fixes for any discovered bugs. (Remember to make a new Boot disk at the same time) Also when making an image never choose to have it verified as part of the creation process. This is usually unsuccessful. Far better to create an image then run the program again and choose the option to check the image. At the moment you can get Version 8 from Amazon for £17.97 including delivery. (Latest build for this version is 937). For an additional £12 you can buy Version 9. I upgraded to V8 in August when I got my new Dell and it works perfectly (I downloaded build 937 (free) from Acronis and saved it on CD for the future.
