Acronis True Image Home 2010
I have the Acronis True Image Home 2010 Retail software I purchased a while back when I was using Window 7.
The only part of the product I really use is the bootable part of the Product. I have never installed the product on my Windows computer. I used the Boot CD to create Images of the Win7 installation so that I can recover from it if there was any problems.
So I set the BIOS to boot from CD, then place the CD in the PC and it boots up to the Acronis Boot OperatingSystem, This allows me to create a Image of the Hard Disk and save the File (a .tib) file to another Hard Disk.
I have now upgrade to Windows 10. The Acronis Website states that Acronis True Image Home 2010 is not compatible with Windows 10. But I cant find out if the incompatibilty is for the Windows installtion version of Aconis True Image 2010 or for the entire product (including the bootable CD).
I was thinking that that the bootable CD that I have does not install itself in Windows & (or 10 for that metter). It boots before Windows boots and then creates the image from the contents of the HDD and saves the image on another HDD. So does it matter what the actual OS that is installed. It should work for any Windows OS installtion.
If this is the case then, can I use the Bootable CD version of ATI Home 2010 to create the image (.tib file) of a Windows 10 installtion, and then use it to recover the installtion at another date (if needed) - the same way I used it for the Win7 PC.
If anyone coudl provide me the answer to this then that would be great.
