Decent backup software 05/04/2014
This review is from: Acronis True Image 2014 - 1 PC
It can backup files and restore them well enough. Windows backup can do that however.
As an image creation/recovery program, it falls horribly short for me. The key to any successful imaging software is that you should be able to create and image, then restore to that image. Acronis has failed me multiple times over the years in this regard. I no longer use this product line for that reason. Acronis will let you create an image, saying everything is going well and it is completed, however the rating for that image will never be more than 3 stars, and has always failed when attempting to do a restore. Most recently a friend wanted me to use the free WD version, and to his surprise it failed in restoring the backup. I no longer use Acronis for any of my imaging needs and have moved to Miray software since their backups have worked 100% of the time. At the end of the day, a product has to work, despite any features, bells, and whistles it has.
