Yes, I tried the Acronis free version first and it gave me a message to upgrade to the Retail version for GPT support.
I then made the mistake of purchasing the Retail version which requires you to create the Recovery and Boot disks in order to clone the HD. This was too much for a notebook that does not have a DVD drive.
And to top it off Acronis then tells you that you need to upgrade one more time to the 'Home Plus Pack"
for full GPT support - What a Racket!!!
In other words Acronis turns what should be a Simple/Easy upgrade into an ordeal that I wasn't about to go through.
Luckily, I found HDClone which was free and had full GPT support.
Now that made it Simple and Easy which this upgrade should be for our Customers.
