    "Did not work on two different machines"

    December 20, 2013  |   By isaacicci

    Version: Acronis Disk Director Home 11

    Pros

    none - it was useless for me.

    Cons

    Bought it to merge volumes on HD, tried to do so on two Windows 7 machines, operation failed on with same error messages: " cannot copy compressed files".
    Spent house on line with tech support to no avail.

    Summary

    Since the functionality offered by the Disk Director is not indispensable, I would recommend to avoid the risk of being stuck with useless junk.

    "Support is non existant!"

    December 18, 2012  |   By GamerKing

    Version: Acronis Disk Director Home 11

    Pros

    When it works, it is fine.

    Cons

    Howeven, it frequently doesn't work. For example--it doesn't reognize my new HDD. Windows Explorer, Dir Opus, O&O Partition all see it, but Disk Director doesn't.

    I tried to send a message--but their system is programmed to advise that no more support is available for my product. So they have a bug--and there is no way to report it! It doesn't get any worse than this.

    Summary

    I was a Beta Tester for Acronis for years. They used to be very concerned about their product--today, they are simply protecting their income.

    As far as Disk Director is concerned my guess is that the Company has given up on it. There are now several much better alternative available.

    "More Junk From Acronis"

    July 20, 2012  |   By HeadMoose

    Version: Acronis Disk Director Home 11

    Pros

    None. The interface is clear and intuitive, but it tells you things which simply are not true.

    Cons

    I have tried repeatedly to re-partition my hard disk. I get no error message and I am lead to believe the job has completed successfully. But it has not. The partition remains unchanged.
    Several go-rounds with "tech support" finally resulted in their offering me a different software package (i.e., no refunds!) and you can see my review of their equally incompetent "True Image Home 2012" product for what happened.
    Again, I'd give ZERO stars if I could!

    Summary

    Acronis is not a producer of functional and competent software. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.

    "No support and no refund ..."

    March 28, 2011  |   By maxijbl

    Version: Acronis Disk Director Home 11

    Pros

    Nothing , just a lot of troubles there...

    Cons

    Didn't recognise SATA III hard-disks , i thought was better than Acronis Disk Director 10 but I was wrong...

    Summary

    If you have money to throw out of the window just buy it people...

    "beta version"

    February 18, 2011  |   By lurhesch

    Version: Acronis Disk Director Home 11

    Pros

    Can detect numerous of operating systems

    Cons

    Unable to handle several important Linux operating systems
    Limited partition management (Opensource bases solutions still offer better support and easier handling)

    Summary

    I used disk director 10 with great pleasure and great frustration.

    Pleasure because of the ease it was able to detect operating systems and frustration because it was not able to.

    I wrote the support of Acronis about this problem in the past, without any response.

    Version 10 of disk director was unable to handle for instance Sabayon and Chakra Linux (and several others) if the bootloader was installed into the partition instead of the MBR.

    So it was only able to detect Sabayon if I installed Grub into the MBR.
    If I installed the bootloader into the partition the operating system was installed to it was unable to detect it.
    I tried over 60 different Linux systems out of Distrowatch.com and this problem occured on several occasions.

    So I decided to give 11 a try as Demo in order to prevent to waiste my money, and luckely I did. version 11 still has the same decease as version 10 which is very disappointing.

    Ok, the interface had a nice upgrade but if the system is still the same I do not see why I have to upgrade. Also for partition management opensource solutions such as Gparted or Parted Magic still perform much better (which I am still using despite having bought version10).

    Still no support for OpenBSD end NetBSD (shame on you)

    You have been warned.
