    Hello to all!

    I'm a newbie here and I want to know your opinion about backup software. I can't choose between two utilities:

    Acronis True Image 8.0
    http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/trueimage/

    and

    Backup Wolf 3.13
    http://www.lonewolf-software.com/BackupWolfDownload.htm

    Nevertheless I heard, Acronis has much more features but is more expensive. But generally I'm ready to pay more to get really good product. So have you ever used these programs and what would your recommendations be?

    The only tool I've ever used for disk imaging is Norton Ghost. It works pretty well, and seemed speedy enough. I've never used either of the tools you were looking at, but the key features that you want to look for are exact disk imaging, rather than a simple copy, and support for backing up to a variety of media (hidden partition, CD-R series, network). It's also really nice if they let you create a boot disk to restore the image from the network or a CD-R series.

    U're really a bit late, but
    1) As a True Image user I completely agree with you, it's a really best soft.
    2) better late than never
    3) thanks anyway.
