Windows 7: Acronis 2012

For years, I too relied on ATI to do all my backup and restores, but then, I started experiencing what so many other have recently -- first couple of releases of their "new" versions were very buggy. Visiting the (now defunct) Acronis support forum revealed that many others felt the same way -- stay away from a new version until at least the second upgrade came out. With their policy now of a new version every year, that means waiting MONTHS to upgrade.

Which is part of the reason I switched over to Macrium Reflect a while back. And yes, their new versions are buggy as well, and folks don't like THEIR UI changes, either, but at least they mostly work.

That is why I have simply stayed with Acronis True Image Home 2010. I bought it a few years ago, and it's been solid for me. I didn't see any reason to upgrade to 2011...it provided no features that I needed, and I didn't see a reason to pay for a rearranged GUI interface...especially with the complaints that it was generating on the web.

I now feel the same way about 2012. Until there is something that I cannot do with ATI 2010 that a newer version fixes, I don't see the point in paying for the upgrade.

For me personally, ATI 2010 has been solid, no problems backing up or restoring. I use Macrium Reflect Free at work and it's been troublefree for me. And I've started using EaseUs ToDoBackup v3 at work and recommending to friends and it's been fine in all of my testing as well.

My exact thoughts, if it's not broke don't fix it.

Is ATI 2010 compatible with win7, and does it support proper alignment?

I have heard of, and seen myself once, alignment issues if restoring a partition image from a mechanical HD to a new SSD. Things get wierd here sometimes for some reason.


However, restoring Images made of the SSD, partiton or full disc, have been problem free.
At least for me.

Might take a look at it.

Do you have to register to get a trial version?

Seems odd to me.

For a trial of ATI 2012? I think you just need to supply a email to get it.

I also like and use Acronis 2010. I bought several copies and I install them on my machines and client computers, has saved my banannas several times. I don't like the 2011 version. I just bought a copy of 2012 to see if it is any better than 2011 (only cost $25 from the ugr.com store) so it is not a lot of money wasted.
I will report back my results after testing it.

Acronis users - Upgrade to Acronis Home 2011
Hi there For current Acronis users the upgrade to 2011 IMO is well worth the small price (approx 25 EUR). New USB 3.0 support, direct conversion of .tib into .vhd files (great for P2V and V2P conversions of Virtual Machines) plus all the other stuff you would expect from a robust backup...
