You get a free of Acronis True Image (£24.99) with a IOMEGA 500GB USB hard drive which is £44.99.

Don't need a disk, why pay for what I won't use?
#3
This is a good piece of software that works very reliably...as long as you set it up correctly - I recommend it to all my customers.

Currently £39.95 from Acronis off their Uk website.

Buy it use it and make a recovery CD you won't regret it.

I've used this on XP, Vista and Win 7 (32 and 64 bit)

Its a very good product, but for home users Windows 7 has pretty good built in back-up capabilities. I have used acronis for years, but can't see why a home user would need it on Windows 7? In any case a very good price so hot.

BTW if you have a WD or Seagate (I think) HDD you can get a slightly cut-down version of Acronis TI gratis, from their respective websites. More aimed at disk cloning but worth it for nowt.

Most PCs come with a backup of the system software. If you backup your whole hdd inclusive your files, how do you know that a virus is not included?

I personally prefer to backup system and files separately and re-install everything from scratch when I get a virus or trojan (using the original system software which came with my computer).

But everyone to their own. If you want to backup your whole hdd, this is a good way to do it.

The software can be set to backup the system as a one-off, or a one-off with snapshots kept on an external disk for a number of days (system/user defined) or set portion(s) of the disk e.g. data files again with snapshots for a number of days (system/user defined). It really is a very flexible program that can accommodate most backup options.

if you had good anti-virus software you would not need to re-install all your stuff , also you can get this from western digitals website for free ,,,,

I would have bought partition magic had it not been discontinued by norton. Got Acronis simply cos its won all the awards going for what it does, it does it well. There is freeware out there that can do the same job but these are invariably beset with problems. £20 bought me supported software guaranteed to work on any brand of hard drive both now and in the future, regular updates and peace of mind knowing I didn't feel like a pirate when using it :)

Thats cheap for me!

hope its not as buggy as the 2010 version. All the backups that verified ok didnt work when I tried to recover files with that version.

personally, I prefer KARENS REPLICATOR which is free

This vein of thought is one reason why so many people end up losing important data as they think because they have a 'good' anti virus program that they won't get a virus and don't need to back up their data. No antivirus program can protect you from the gizillions of virus's out there.

I keep on looking in the mags to see if anyone is gonna give this away free,maybe even include a project guide.

No luck as yet!

Unless I've missed something Karens replicator only does data and not, like Acronis does, a system image and/or data depending on how you set it up. So you not comparing like with like.

Rather than Karens replicator, I would use Synctoy from Microsoft which is also free for data synchronisation/backup/copying.

yep - data only but windows has a full system image backup already so pointless having acronis as well. Karens replicator is far more advanced for data backup than acronis and is completely free and really easy to use.

I suspect that we could debate this forever. In my opinion for a novice user who doesn't want to do anything technical Acronis is superior as it offers full system recovery from pressing F11 at boot time to allow recovery, data and/or system, at point in time. So, lets just agree to disagree.
