My Acronis True Image 2009 failed. I didn't know that it was incompatible with Windows 7. I made a complete backup (which I presume is an image of drive C using the Windows 7 inbuilt backup. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the Acronis system, but is the built-in system as reliable as comparable paid-for products? If so, it may save me buying Acronis' latest system.
