5 out of 5 eggs addition to my other review 05/11/2014

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

Pros: I forgot to add the following MAJOR and significant advantage of this program.

When I added USB 3.0 drives to my system, Windows 7 always saw the 3.0 externals when making an image of the startup drive. It NEVER saw the drives when trying to reimage (using System Backup and Restore) unless and until I installed the USB 3.0 drivers. Microsoft could have fixed this problem and made life easier for its customers.

Acronis handles this issue differently. It knows what drivers were used on your system and uses them when you perform a restore. I no longer need the extra steps of having the drivers available and navigating to find and install them. For this reason alone, the program is a blessing.

Cons: As mentioned in my other review.

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent 05/10/2014

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

Pros: User friendly (but it can be overwhelming for a beginner)
Universal Recovery module as explained in the following link:
It basically means that if you change your platform (OS, Video or Audio card, etc.), you can use an older image to reimage the new device.
Faster than Windows Backup/Restore and better compression (much smaller backup files).
Great price with the promo code

Cons: The only con I'm aware of is that on Windows 7, there is a 10 second delay before the Windows welcome screen appears so the new image is not exactly a true clone. I have used Norton Ghost before and there was a 45 second countdown before reaching the welcome screen. This appears to be Microsoft's way of punishing people who use 3rd party software solutions.

Other Thoughts: I hate going to the Acronis site. When the chat window appears, Acronis staff seeks to get your phone number so they can have a specialist call you back to answer your technical questions. In reality, the Acronis staff member is a sales person whose interest is to sell you a retail solution at full price.
