I have True Image 2011 with the Plus Pack. I have a backup of an old PC that was created with True Image v11. The PC has died and I was wondering if I could restored the backup onto a new PC using my 2011 bootable CD with the Plus Pack. Will universal restore work with backups created with older versions of True Image (v11 in this case)?

In theory it will work. The image itself is not linked to the Universal Restore function. Universal Restore is a bit like slipstreaming drivers into an OS install. As long ATI 2011 can restore the image, you can try.

BTW, you can actually try. Do a first restore without activation Universal Restore. If the restore completes, your computer might not boot without a BSOD, but you know that the image is OK.
