Summary: Got a combo deal on it so for the money I spent cloning my hard drive I am fine with it. I didn't spend a whole bunch of time reloading OS and copying files.
Pros: Cloned perfectly. That's really why I purchased it.
Cons: I use the daily backup as well, but I have no idea if it is backing up what I want backed up and where it is going. I backup multiple drives to an external usb harddrive. I try a manual backup and it looks like it is only backing up my C: I need to dig a little deeper.
Summary: Actually it is serving my purpose very well because I wanted a tool that would allow me to quickly move between win7 and Win 8 images. This allows me to do this very well. Perhaps there is a solution for the recovery option via recovery media (will contact Acronis support) but at least I have the...
Pros: 1)Restoration process is quick and painless---assuming you are in Windows so see cons 2)Like the UI update coming from the 2009 release 3)Allows UI to convert Windows based images to Acronis ones
Cons: Afraid I must dock two eggs here, but on occasion when you elect to start a restore in Windows and the program requests a reboot, it will sometimes hang at the point it is supposed to start the restore (this is right after POST on the reboot). Usually a reboot and another go at the restoration wo...
Summary: I think this software is designed by computer nerds who are trying to make it user friendly and for home users but they are not able to get it right.
Pros: Bought for a customer who needed the encrypted backup. My first choice backup software is BackupAssist but the price tag is $250. This was a quick choice only based on the product advertised encryption which was there (though difficult to find how to use).
Cons: To clunky of an interface. Made for people who don't know much about computers but don't mind graphically trying to figure out how to backup properly.
