Acronis True Image Home 2011 Backup Software verified on T20

2013-10-20, 1:13 AM

Acronis True Image Home 2011 Backup Software is a commercially available backup software.  It has been verified to back and restore successfully on at least one attempt so far.  What occurred was XP HOME with SP2 is installed on the IBM Thinkpad T20 (year 2000 model).  Then Acronis True Image 2011 backup onto a secure separate partition on the same hard drive.  After finding out the machine could not handle the additional new added miscellaneous softwares, an attempt to restore to the plain XP on the secure zone is made through Acronis.  Then after reboot, it started and everything is working fine. Therefore, this post is to inform anyone interested of an alternative verified backup software for IBM Thinkpad T20 and XP HOME with SP2. -best regards and happy computing

Hello,

 

No specific recommendation as to disk imaging software, but I wrote a document on various backup strategies that you might find of interest:  Options for backing up your computer [PDF]

 

By the way, you might want to consider installing Microsoft Windows XP SP3 and all post-SP3 updates on the T20, just to get it up to date with all of the security and reliability updates Microsoft has made since SP2 was released.

 

Regards,
