I received my copy of Acronis True Image Home 2010 a couple of days ago, I have been using True Image for a number of years but due to an upgrade to Windows 7 I decided to upgrade to True Image 2010. I have got to say that this software is the biggest pile of s*** I have ever come across in my life, it simply does NOT work.
After I installed the application I had a quick look at the new features I closed the application and then tried to restart it. Unfortunately there is a bug that does not allow the application to close properly so then it is impossible to restart. I then proceeded to create a backup which appeared to go smoothly, however, when I attempted to restore the backup the program kept asking for volume one of the backup and then the program would stop responding. This program is about as much use as a life jacket that dissolves in water. It is now on the way back to Amazon for a refund. I suggest that if anyone is considering buying this software that they download the trial version first and read all of the complaints on the acronis forums especially when using with Windows 7.
Even though I posted this deal I would vote cold if I could, even if it was free I would still vote cold.
