This review is from: Acronis True Image 2013


Nice GUI


Corrupt backup without warning.
Confusing log info.

Other Thoughts:

Well, it is sad to own Acronis name. I've been using Acronis for a couple of years. It has some hicups, but I still stick with it.

Now I run my own Home Server 2011 and I installed both Disk Director and True Image (called Backup and Recovery for server) server versions. No errors from installation.

First server backup. It reported some errors with backups. I did some research and found the errors from shadow file setting (VSS?). Reset the setting and backup ran ok.

Another backup problem. When I tried to set the backup compresson to high, the backup froze and would not go. So I had to stop the backup and set the compresson to normal or none. Finally backup completed.

The restore was a disaster.

I used to Disk Director Server to move a partition from one disk to another disk. The task completed with failure. The source partition was removed, but the target partition was corrupt. So I lost data.

So I called upon the software to restore from the backup. The restore failed completely with tons of errors. It reported that the backup image was corrupt and could not complete. I mounted the backup image and tried to manually copy files from the backup image. I did salvage some data, but some files were lost. Some files could not be copied.

Backup software has to be 100% reliable. Disk drives can fail and restoring is what we pay for backup software. Acronis has failed very badly.

I'll stay away from Acronis and try to find something else. I lost data.....
