Vista Ultimate - "Back-up & Restore Image"

  six-h 15:47 28 Aug 2008

I have been holding off buying Acronis True Image 11 because I'm confused by this option in Vista Ultimate.

Can someone confirm my suspicion that it is not possible to "Image" the entire Operating system from within that system, therefore the "Back-up & Restore Image" feature would only cover Programes, Data and Settings, at best?

Complete PC Backup completely replaces the current contents of the disc. It in effect formats the disc and replaces the contents with the image, system files and all.

Put more simply, you do not need Acronis unless there is some feature within it you want or like.
