4 out of 5 eggs Clones easy to test 04/02/2012

This review is from: Acronis True Image Home 2012 (DVD)

Pros:

I use True Image only to clone my drive.

I don't trust ANY imaging software, having had problems with
images in the past, and because there's no simple, quick way to verify they work.

Hence, I always clone the entire drive to another, and then boot off the clone to verify it works. I do this about monthly.

Cons:

I also have True Image 2010.

This latest version has a few new features I don't need. Hence, it was not a good purchase for me.

But, if you don't have a recent True Image already, this is great for cloning.

Other Thoughts:

I have used EaseUS todo (download). I prefer True Image, but not by a vast margin.

I use True Image by booting off the CD. It's simpler, and does not add the clutter of another program to the hard drive.

===
For incremental backups (my work is on a second partition), I use the DOS xcopy command.

To backup the second partition (E) of the primary drive to the second partition (F) of a second hard drive:
1) Place an icon on the desktop for C:\windows\system32\command.com for XP (cmd.exe for windows 7)
2) Create batch file xcopyef.bat, containing the following:
xcopy e: f:/e/c/h/r/k/s/v/d Place in the E:\ root directory
3) Click on the icon for command.com (or cmd.exe)
4) Go to E:\
5) Type xcopyef Then hit enter.

This will update any file on F if the file on E has a later date.
And it will add to F any file on E which is not already on F.

It will not delete files on F which you have deleted on E.
It does not work for C:\

Quick and painless. Do it daily.
