3 out of 5 eggs Good program, but there are better 02/07/2014

This review is from: Acronis True Image 2014 Premium - 1 PC

Pros:

Great for backing up your system to either an image file so you can restore the whole thing at once or as individual files to restore in case of accidental deletion. Also great for moving a system from an old hard drive to a newer one, like upgrading to an SSD.

Cons:

Cannot back up to network drives very well under Windows 8 or 8.1. When trying to set it up for backing up to a network drive, it says it sets up correctly, but when it runs it doesn't authenticate to the other machine properly and the backup fails. I have not tried this under Windows 7, but Windows 8 and 8.1 totally failed. I could only back up to drives connected directly to the machine. It is probably due to UAC, but I flat out refuse to turn off one of the most vital security features of Windows 8 just to make this work. It is also very slow to start up, and I can't tell why. I have 4 SSDs in my system and no mechanical hard drives other than my backup target USB 3 drive, and yet this programs takes almost 3 minutes to start.

Other Thoughts:

I bought this to back up to a network drive, and it failed. It's not the only program to do this, though, and it is better than several others that I've tried. Currently, I am running it to back up to a USB 3 drive. That, at least, works well enough.
