Acronis doesn't work well for me either.

I use Paragon and Macrium - they work perfectly on my 7 x64 and Vista x64 systems.

I don't know if any of the popular 3rd party imaging apps. can be configured to immediately start backing up an external device when you plug it in - if that's what you are asking.

I had a weird desktop refresh-bug with Acronis, i always had to press F5 to see extracted folders and downloaded files on my desktop with TI installed.

The Macrium is actually pretty nice on 32bit and I ended up using it

I've used ShadowProtect and Image For Windows for a very long time.
ShadowProtect doesn't support Win7 100% and there is an issue with I4W
with the image viewer. I got a free license from Paragon so I guess I'll stick with it.
Is window 7's backup system have the function to mount the backup and copy files?

I have read in this forum that many people here use third party backup software like Macium Reflect, if so then is Windows 7 built in backup software any good? Can it produce a rescue media that can restore the hard disk if Windows won't start?

Do you really need another backup program (Acronis)
