"Not reliable"

June 19, 2015  |  By davises

 |  Version: Acronis True Image 2015 1.1

Pros

It appears to make a good back-up.

Cons

When you try to recover from a backup you are told there is a fault!

Summary

Not worth purchasing.

"Acronis sucks"

June 17, 2015  |  By Oldoode

 |  Version: Acronis True Image Home 2011

Pros

None huge waste of time. I bought it hoping to use it to change out my hard drive to a new one. What a waste of time.

Cons

Everything, there must be something better out there, I hate to give it even one star.

"retrograde product - awful to use"

May 27, 2015  |  By jack gilliat

 |  Version: Acronis True Image 2015 1.1

Pros

not much to enjoy.

Cons

the new user interface is too simplistic. It makes trying to do anything far more difficult than previous versions. So much so that I have ditched it and gone back to 2012 version. Can you imagine trying to train a novice driver in a car in which the instrument panel has been removed together with the rear view mirror and side mirrors in the name of simplicity?? - the car would be much more difficult to drive. Well, that is what Acronis has done with its 2015 version!! It is so frustrating to use in comparison to the previous version. The pdf user manual is well over a 100 pages long which gives you some idea how unhelpful the user interface is. Horrible. Avoid at all costs.

"Horrible customer service, and software does not backup"

May 24, 2015  |  By tuppydog

 |  Version: Acronis True Image Home 2011

Pros

Cloning works great. that's it.

Cons

Customer service is worse than Time Warner Cable, you get connected to India, people ask you the same stupid questions from a script, then you get transferred to another Indian, and get asked the same stupid questions. After this, you get calls and then they ask you the same stupid questions and runaround, problem will NEVER get resolved. The "answer Forum" is a complete joke ran by a bunch of arrogant jerks.

Summary

AVOID AT ALL COST, DO NOT BUY!!!!!

Updated on May 24, 2015

HOW COULD CNET HAVE GIVEN THIS 5 STARS "SPECTACULAR"??? I BOUGHT THIS PIECE OF CRAP BASED ON CNET'S RECOMMENDATION, AND I SIGNED UP JUST TO COMMENT ON THIS. I WISH I COULD GET MY MONEY BACK, THE CUSTOMER SERVICE AND STUPID FORM FOR ACRONIS IS HORRIBLE/DON'T BUY THIS!!!!!

"outdated software"

May 21, 2015  |  By AdrianLew

 |  Version: Acronis True Image 2015 1.1

Pros

if it works then its great to do safety back ups every few weeks. But make sure pre test it works with your windows version

Cons

not easy to operate control panel.. Should be a more user friendly one, with few steps. While acronis was working great on windows 7, I was not even able to recover windows 8 once :( Just wasted my time, after recovery windows did not start up, even with support request I just wasted time and the back up was useless :(

Summary

I would not buy this software again unless the interface is improved and easy to use.. and it recovers for sure.

Took me 4 clicks and 10 minutes using, samsung software that came with new hard drive to do the same job!

"Disaster with Surface Pro 3"

May 12, 2015  |  By wjcole1945

 |  Version: Acronis True Image 2015 1.1

Pros

If you can get the snapi fix you can do a backup.

Cons

Terrible user interface on the Surface Pro 3 (view does not scale properly)
Drastic change from previous user interface. Be sure to read the fine print to get at all options.
Will not restore to SP3 unless you acquire a hub, a USB mouse, and USB keyboard, to operate with your USB drive.
Defeats the purpose of being able to do regular backups that can be restored to dead metal.

Summary

DO NOT BUY if you want to use with Surface Pro 3.

"Not happy with this version"

April 25, 2015  |  By Forsite

 |  Version: Acronis True Image 2015 1.1

Pros

Purchased ATI version 10 and used it regularly, then upgraded to 12 and also used it without much fuss.
Version 15 appears to be a bit of a jumble. maybe because the layout is totaly different from 10 and 12, but I still haven't worked out how to give my images the names I want to use (easy in 10 and 12), and MOST annoying is that, while partition imaging is easy (once you find the right button to press), they appear to be reluctan (impossible?) to reload. It just sits on "calculating" the time required and it goes on and on and on. In the previous versions, there was a list and you just clicked on the selected update and off it went, no fuss.

Cons

See above.

Summary

I'll be in no rush to upgrade to 15 from version 12.

"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.
