Conclusion: This program's ability not just to perform drive imaging but also to back up and restore specific folders and settings makes it the most flexible backup utility I know. But users with complex systems should watch out for potential problems with the emergency restore CD.
Pros: Backs up folders, settings, and e-mail as well as creating drive images. Supports experimenting with new software before committing changes to hard drive. Includes disk cleanup and security software.
Cons: Linux-based emergency CD gets confused by complex systems. So-called "Secure Zone" isn't secure if hard drive fails.
Summary: Acronis has steadily improved True Image's usability, and the 2011 version is much friendlier than earlier iterations. The program is rock solid, though the new features aren't as compelling as last year's additions, so if you own True Image Home 2010 you might want to wait for the next go-round before purchasing an upgrade.
Summary: Over the years I have has the opportunity to try out various versions of Acronis software developed to provide backup and restore facilities. Now it is the turn of the latest version which goes by the title of Acronis True Image Home 2011 .
