Acronis True Image 2013 - Download
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs True Image 2013 Doesn't work with Windows 8.1 10/28/2013

This review is from: Acronis True Image 2013 - Download

Pros: Great program for anything before Windows 8.1.

Cons: Doesn't work with Windows 8.1
After updating to Windows 8.1, and trying to backup system, system restarts after about 40 seconds.
Only able to get it to work offline.....very inconvenient.
Their official word is imcompatible with Windows 8.1

Other Thoughts: It seems that Acronis Doesn't care that it still 2013 and their program doesn't work in 2013.
No explanation no customer service.
Software Companies at their worst.

Acronis True Image 2014 - 1 PC (DVD Case)
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs Any program that doesn't work is bad. 10/28/2013

This review is from: Acronis True Image 2014 - 1 PC (DVD Case)

Pros: None

Cons: Forced to upgrade because Acronis True Image 2013/w plus pack is officially incompatible with Windows 8.1.
Well True Image 2014 still crashes my system, when trying to backup.

Other Thoughts: These companies expect us to open our wallets, but are really callous to people who have problems. ASUS; Acronis and yes Microsoft don't care.

Microsoft Windows 8.1 - Full Version (32 & 64-bit)
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs Windows 8.1 seems a step backwards 10/28/2013

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 - Full Version (32 & 64-bit)

Pros: Start button back woo-hoo. With Start 8 it is moot.
You can change the start screen with desktop image.

Cons: Any upgrade shouldn't make programs not work. Unfortunately Windows 8.1 and Acronis programs absolutely don't work on my system. They crash system, and do not give any explanation why.

Other Thoughts: Acronis and Windows 8.1 don't work together.
So why upgrade? Acronis's attitude is surprising. They actually don't care. They aren't providing an update compatible with Windows 8.1. I am speaking of True Image 2013..Oh Wait it is still I gather they don't care about the money I have already spent. I tried their Acronis True Image 2014 Trial on Windows 8.1 and same results.....crashes system restarts, and no error code.
Leaves me disgusted with Microsoft and Acronis.
