    Ok so I installed Drive Image and rebooted ... then I check for patches like I do w/ everything and found one to update it from 7.0x to 7.0.3 and it seemed to go ok. Only now when I go help -> about it still says 7.0 instead of 7.0.3 or something so now I'm wondering if it really updated or what. :p Anyhoo if any of you got this program maybe you can see what yours says ...

    ps - including a pic of my about screen.

    -Edit- here is patch I used here

    The only choice your given is 7.0x so I guess its same update for both? Also file name includes pro in the name "vpro203_personalupdate_esd.zip".

    I do believe it is the same....

    I have a vague memory of doing just the same as you - then for some reason I really cannot remember I had to check with their tech helpline on something and it turns out they are one and the same - probably confusion crept in with the Powerquest/Symantec buyout. That's my guess anyway.

    My confusion stems from the version number not changing anyplace I can see so I'm not sure the update even updated anything. :(

    Well a few moons ago they released a first update which was an iso. I updated o.k.

    Still says 7, but I think it has changed. Now with 2.0.3.4002.

    Ok I just had a look at the "Backup Image Broswer" included w/ Drive Image and it has the following info in its about. So I guess the latest patch did take and they just don't update the version # in the program?

    yeah - the 402 (4002?) is the thing, you got it - mind you with symantec thing it may be the last update we ever get?!

    Obviously the extra zero was a slip, never tried ghost, just goback or drive image.

    Hmm...I'm still using DriveImage 2002 that I bought some time ago, but I'm thinking of moving over to Acronis TrueImage. It seems to have support for more filesystems (especially ReiserFS, which I use for my Slackware partition).
