"i just dumped acronis, it does not work with vista,"

That is a sweeping statement which is not valid, It works for me and many others no problem.

we just bought a new vista laptop and I installed an older version of Acronis TI without a problem and used it to copy all our docs and settings from a backup of the old desktop pc. Once I have loaded everything else we need I will do a full backup of the laptop onto the external usb HDD.

Seems to work for me.

murphyman The whole point of my link was for you to use the Acronis forum to try and solve your problem. There are a lot of very experienced Acronis users who contribute to that forum and may be able to help you solve your problem.

thank you all for your response, your right rawprawn,it was a sweeping statement, it was made out of frustration, no doubt it works for some people but not for me.i found a copy of macrium reflect, and it backed up my system, and restored it without a problem so once again all is well. again thank you all for your responce.
