    "Hate this software"

    April 21, 2011  |   By miller-ck

    Version: Acronis True Image 8.0

    Pros

    There's absolutely nothing I like about this product.

    Cons

    clunky user interface
    flaky performance
    fails to write to DVDs
    fails to write to network drives
    Installing it just destroyed my laptop running vista

    Summary

    Took the package back to CPU World. Asked for my money back. Told them either way they can keep it. I'd never risk trying to restore form any of the few backups it managed to complete.

    "Wouldn't leave home without it!"

    September 7, 2005  |   By GAK1961

    Version: Acronis True Image 8.0

    Pros

    This program is the only true "SAVE YOUR DATA" backup software that is worth every penny. Easy to use, friendly user interface (GUI). Small enough to keep on your USB thumb drive with room to spare.

    Cons

    NONE!

    "I'm here reviewing Acronis because of Acronis"

    August 31, 2005  |   By Steverini88

    Version: Acronis True Image 8.0

    Pros

    This is thoroughly professional software. I take regular (USB) images of my system and sure enough, I played with my registry cleaner once too many times and goinked the whole thing up. ReBooted from the Acronis Rescue CD, pointed it to the last USB image, and 10 minutes (And I mean 10 lousy stinkin minutes) later, rebooted, cracked a beer, crossed my fingers....and low and behold...baby booted right up. No apps crashes, no missing dll's, no surprises. It was Back to Normal in every respect.

    I'm not easily impressed by anything (Ok, except Concourse showcars and babes splayed all over the hoods) but I'm flippin amazed by this software. I can't say enough about the guys and gals who developed this gem except to say "Well done, thanks, can I buy you all a beer?"

    Cons

    No cons at all...

    Worth every penny.

    Buy this and 'compute with confidence', like the trade name says. It's really true.

    "NOT ONCE HAS THIS PRODUCT FAILED!!!!!!!!!"

    August 18, 2005  |   By Superknown

    Version: Acronis True Image 8.0

    Pros

    I've been suffering through trying to find a proper backup for my computer while using incarnations of Norton Ghost(and many other product attempts). Even through the dread-dead 2003 Dos. Norton at that time was the only Backup product that "Once in a While" would survive my constant "let's see what my computer can take" Mindset attitude. I've been using Acronis now for several months and NOT ONCE has this product failed to give me only the TRUEST BACKUP. It's also fast (faster than the latest Norton and all the other expensive cheap stuff not worth the talk). So easy to use allowing us to explore through an image. Scheduling, etc. Now I make time to see what will actually make acronis take a dive. it just doesn't happen. This is my First software product review ever, feeling that it is necessary to thank the makers for standing tall. THANK YOU ACRONIS. I haven't reformated in a while. (I'm kinda missing it)

    Cons

    Leave Blank ;)

    "Image software is a must - Trueimage is nice but needs improvement"

    August 16, 2005  |   By mikeuser

    Version: Acronis True Image 8.0

    Pros

    A very nice and slick user interface. Works like a champ. The recovery CD is a life saver

    Cons

    You have to disable multithreading CPUs if you boot with recovery CD. Sometimes crashes on my IBM laptop. Image recovery is a little bit slow, a 10 GB images takes 12 minutes (have no comparison to other programs though)

    "Very Competitive Product"

    August 14, 2005  |   By newcustomer

    Version: Acronis True Image 8.0

    Pros

    True Image wins my vote for ease of use, incremental backups and no need to shutdown windows for taking backups. Probably they were the first people to come up with these features. Since then I have become their fan.

    I have almost everything (my research, financial data, personal data etc.) on my desktop. So reliability and availability are my prime concern. I have all types of protection on my system like anti-spyware (Spywall), anti-virus (AVG), firewall (Trlokom, Zonealarm, Sygate) etc. The setup I have is two hard disk and I restore the image as and when required from one to the other!

    I have used Ghost, DriveImage etc. for imaging but none that works as elegantly as True Image. We do create images at work for lab machines which are used by lots of people.

    Finally, I have hardly written reviews for products but I think I should to do justice to the product and help other people.

    "Don't waste your time or money!!"

    August 12, 2005  |   By Swimmer22

    Version: Acronis True Image 8.0

    Pros

    Main screen looked good

    Cons

    Do you own stock in a CD company since this doesn't record to DVD's unless you have some other software like Ahead InCD or Roxio DirectCD. You have to format the DVD first then back up. The other option is to back up to a hard drive then use another program to burn to a DVD. But then, when you use the Acronis emergency boot disk, it won't read the DVD's. What a disappointment especially after the great review by CNET.

    "Acronis beats Norton Ghost & Dantz, hands down."

    August 7, 2005  |   By sparky52t

    Version: Acronis True Image 8.0

    Pros

    A powerful, back up and restore program balanced with an intuitive, easy to use interface.

    Cons

    I typically trust a brand name like Norton to deliver solid software but installing and using Ghost was nearly a nightmare. I got blue screens when I first tried to use it and a scrambled registry when I tried to uninstall it. I use Dantz at work but find the interface counterintuitive and difficult to understand. Acronis delivers a superior back up utility program. Period!

    "Much Better than Norton Ghost 9 for me."

    July 31, 2005  |   By Jere L Hough

    Version: Acronis True Image 8.0

    Pros

    It works! At least on my sata raid 0 nVidia GEForce 4 AMD 64 System. No imaging product is worth anything unless it can restore the image it creates, and, compared to Ghost 9, which I've also been testing with this new raid stripe, it wins hands down.

    I bought Acronis TI when version 8 first came out over a year ago, and found it had problems working on all our home networked desktops and laptops. The restore disks didn't always work. So I bought Norton Ghost 9 and thought I worked ok until the first time I tried using it. Could NOT get it to boot my computer, and a week of tech support has failed to deliver a solution. So I went back to Acronis, updated to the latest build, and VOILA! No problem! And I didn't even have to load the special raid drivers at bootup as is often necessary with a raid stripe. I was impressed a the progress Acronis has made, and very unimpressed with the failure of Norton to deliver anything but headaches and wasted time.

    The bottom line is that imaging programs need to work with YOUR hardware and software, and so far Acronis 8 has worked for me, on all my desktops and laptops. I'm sold on Acronis TI as it's the first reliable backup system I've found to work with my new sata-raid stripe.

    Cons

    None. It works for me.

    "I am very much impressed"

    July 20, 2005  |   By Disown

    Version: Acronis True Image 8.0

    Pros

    I am a small business owner. I have several computers in my office environment and I need to be certain that every piece of information is safe and backed up. I have a mirrored RAID disk. But I always knew that it would not safe me in case of physical hard disk failure. So I bought several copies of Acronis True Image 8.0 and installed them on my office machines. I set scheduler to regularly back up my drives. It seems that I had a premonition of total system failure and it happened once.

    I have to admit, that restoration was amazing. It is as if nothing was even done to my computers. Everything is exactly the way it was before I did the restore.

    I am very much impressed
