"Tragically unfinished product"

January 31, 2015  |  By bhenchot2

 |  Version: Acronis True Image 2015 1.1

Pros

Backs up the PC. Not sure as yet if the backup works. But that's a separate issue.

Cons

Every time you try to shut down the PC, it gives an error saying "Operations are in progress ... " At first I didn't know what it was because it doesn't even say it's an Acronis thing. Then after hours of leaving it with the same message and seeing no progress, I force shut down the machine. This is clearly less than the best way to treat your machine and it turns out - it is BECAUSE OF THIS BACKUP SOFTWARE. Acronis couldn't be bothered to fix it in a patch. You as a customer are clearly not important to them.

Summary

If you have your back to the wall, buy this otherwise find another way out.

"No Support After 30 Days"

January 26, 2015  |  By SKMetz

 |  Version: Acronis True Image 2014 2014

Pros

Seemed to kind of work for a few months

Cons

After using it for a few months it simply stopped working correctly and generating error messages. Acronis "technical support" said that they only provided support for 30 days and I'd have to pay for them to tell me how to make this work again. Uninstalled it and bought a different product.

"Free-to-try for 30 days.... except if you want to clone"

January 24, 2015  |  By billyknit5150

 |  Version: Acronis True Image 2015 1.1

Pros

It's free for 30 days

Cons

You can't use some features until you buy. More specifically, the 'Clone' feature.

Summary

I was going to forgo the terrible reviews here buy if it met my 1 need: Cloning. This feature is locked unless you buy. I'll never even know if it's any good.

"Working fine"

December 21, 2014  |  By Sadsaytr

 |  Version: Acronis True Image 2015 1.0

Pros

I also have been using Acronis for years. I must be doing something wrong, as I have NEVER had issues. Not on XP, Vista, 2000 or Windows 8. I have it on 3 different PC's. I have had no problems restoring from any of my external USB drives. I avoid saving to the cloud so maybe that is where the problem is.

Cons

None in particular

Summary

It works, I don't use any features, like backing up every other day. I manually backup once every week or so.

"Save your money, this software is crap!"

November 04, 2014  |  By bobkivi

 |  Version: Acronis True Image 2015 1.0

Pros

None that I can see, it plain doesn't work!

Cons

Software doesn't work
Support is aweful and/or non-existant

Summary

Save your money, Macrium Reflect is much more reliable, easier to use. I have been a tortured user of Acronis products for over 10 years....NO MORE...too crappy. User interface changes all the time, base engine never gets fixed and Support is horrific!!!
SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!

"So bad it makes you cry"

November 01, 2014  |  By j7h

 |  Version: Acronis True Image 2015 1.0

Pros

Don't know, it won't load onto Win7 64 bit. There is *already* an unanswered case in Acronis, number 66914. It just complains that a "True Image tool is runnig" (their spelling, not mine), odd since I even uninstalled my old version.

Cons

Just as bad as other versions. It will drain your life away as you try to get it to do anything.

Summary

I have Acronis 2012, widely acknowledged as one of the worst pieces of SW ever written. Every command takes 10 minutes or more. Now it can't even find the backup files on my local server, even when I stick its nose in them.
So I thought I'd upgrade to 2015. No luck. It won't even install. I even uninstalled 2012 and it won't install.
Stay far away from this! Life is too short to spend it cursing at your PC.

"terrible software, terrible support, rude managers"

October 03, 2014  |  By jakeernest

 |  Version: Acronis True Image 2015 2015

Pros

I'm hard-pressed to find anything positive to say. There's much better, more intuitive backup software available for about the same price. I guess if I had to say something positive, I'd say the installation went smoothly (as long as you remove the previous version first).

Cons

Nonstop backup is a non-starter. It's a joke. It's impossible to recover anything using it. The incremental backup works, but even that is clunky and makes it difficult to open the vaults (or whatever they call them) to find the item I need.

The company representative love to play the game of "it's a backup problem," so they don't have to support the software after 30 days. I actually had a tech support person tell me this (out of school). He probably got fired for saying it.

None of the upper managers are worth talking to. They don't return calls or emails.

Summary

Don't bother. There's better out there. I have 20 years of experience with backup and recovery software, and this product is a loser.

"Worst software ever"

September 19, 2014  |  By trek_b

 |  Version: Acronis True Image 2014 2014

Pros

None. Full of bugs.

Cons

It is incredible that in 2014 a company can place a product in the market as buggy as this.

Bought 2014 family pack. Installed on the first computer and configured some backups. On that computer even if the backup fails, everything is green on the main dashboard.
A simple change in parameters of a backup is not possible without corrupting the other backups.
Backup from a network server does not work. TI keeps failing connecting to the server, even if when configuring the backup there is no problem accessing the server.
Backup to a network server takes an eternity. Network usage 3%...
Random crashes and backup configuration corruption.

This software is unusable. DO NOT BUY IT. Looking for alternatives...
