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.

19.99 at play.com, do they usually deliver sooner than amazon when using the free super saver?

They are about the same.

make sure you validate and test out any archive backups you create. This version let me down twice when trying to restore 2 PC backups (i.e 100% failure rate - had to reinstall windows etc!).

Was that from using a bootable Acronis CD to backup and later restore Windows that resulted in failures?

Tempted to replace my version 10 personal edition.

both the boot time startup recovery manager (F11) and the CD failed with my backups on external HDD.

Both backups (on different PCs) stated it wanted part 3 of each backup image. Each image was all in 1 file so it got confused somewhere!

Even the secure zone backup failed. I now have a 150GB secure zone and pushed the image partition limit to the max and that worked on a subsequent image I created when testing the restore. A big bug somewhere so I suggest you thoroughly validate and restore an image immediately after creation in order to call it trustworthy.

No such problems with the 2009 version

A really poor feature is that there is no way to backup any TIB (backups) files from the secure zone to an external hard drive. You have to run the backups again with a different output path. Very poor!

i need one of these because my old version of acronis isnt compatible with w7

I've had mixed experiences with True Image..

Sometimes the archives it creates are corrupt and therefore useless if you ever need to restore them. As said above, always validate them to make sure they're not corrupt..
I've had issues restoring backups too.. TI not recognising hard drives, amongst other stuff.

Fantastic find and thank you, Hot Hot Hot.

i use Macrium Reflect .. it works and it's free.
Obviously not a feature packed as this. But if all you're looking for is a backup and restore facility ...

Only ever used Norton Ghost, which seems to work ok.

Errr, isn't that why there's a verify image option built in?

Have used this on multiple PC's ... both incremental and full back ups ... No problems at all.
Good software, good price.

EPIC FAIL! :whistling:

I've used this for years, and restored loads of backups, great program. This version shipped without ext4 support for some reason though, hopefully they will fix that.

If you have a seagate/maxtor disk its worth getting seagate discwizard from under "support and downloads" on the seagate site, its a cutdown earlier version of trueimage, and will do many of the things this will do.

Was just about to buy this, but there's some shocking reviews.

The attraction of packages like this is the peace of mind it gives you, if it doesn't do that and you end up having to do manual backups 'just in case' then it's all a bit pointless.

its only been out a few months! :w00t:

Hence why I said earlier versions worked fine but this one has serious flaws

Acronis' free support is now offered for a mere one-month period after purchase. Beyond this point you have to pay for any required support.

Now I'm worried. I've been using Acronis 2010 since I moved onto Window 7, but reading those reviews I'm sh!t scared to test out whether it actually is working as well as the previous versions!

Thats the big problem. You cant 100% test a backup cos it may be shafted.

I got around this by using windows backup utility to create a system image on an external hard drive as a failsafe.

If its just backup you want, I've been using the latest version of GFI Backup Home on Windows 7 - its free and does the job....

Thanks csiman - I'll give that a go as well, I'd rather have an extra image file that I hopefully won't need than have to re-install everything from scratch.

exactly the same for me. A brilliant example of rushing out a product and losing long term customers and years of building up a great reputation down the pan!

There is a free backup program available called Easeus Todo Backup 1.1 that works with Windows 7, it hasn't got all of the features of true image but it seems to work very well and unlike true image it does what it is advertised to do. If anyone would like to give it a try here is the link:-
