"I hate this software"
It is kind of functional, it is STILL possible to backup and restore
- Buggy as hell. The U3 smart drives, in particular, cause a peculiar UI bug, sort of an endless loop as soon as the flash drive is inserted when trying to restore, making the restoration impossible. And yes, it is still there in the latest 2012 edition. A nasty surprise from Acronis. Now I am trying to actually remove the U3 from my Sandisk Backup 64G drive and convert it to regular flash to just be able to restore my system.
- The restore utilites are crude, incomplete, and if you try to do anything more than basic default restore, good luck. The UI screns look like they were written in 90s, judging by design and the look and feel of the UI components. They totally have that barbaric win95 look.
- The bootable media it creates is NOT guaranteed to work. The only reason I could do ANY restoration, is because I have another laptop which works, and can be used to re-create bootable media on a DVD, because the flash drive version would not even boot.
In short: If I were a programmer, I would be ashamed to be even associated with anything Acronis.
Shame on you, Acronis ! Your 2012 version has the same bugs as the 2011 version ! In a whole year you did nothing to improve the product, still same bugs and same crude win95 UI look!
