    Acronis TI 2010 has SERIOUS Problems


    I just purchased and downloaded both True Image 2010 and Disk Director. When I tried installing them on my WinXP Pro computer it failed stating: TI2010 Does Not Support Dynamic or GPT Disks.

    I did a search on the Acronis Knowledgebase and they directed me to a Link where I could purchase the Plus Pak for True Image 2010, which would then support GPT and Dynamic Disks.

    I paid for (Another $30 !) the Plus Pak, Downloaded it and installed it.

    Guess What... IT STILL DOES NOT SUPPORT DYNAMIC DISKS... Acronis solution is to blow away your existing partition and data, reformat and create a new partition that is a Basic Disk... What a TOTAL RIP OFF!

    If I wanted to do that, I could use WINDOWS BACKUP !

    Oh, and there is NO support available for free! You have to PAY for telephone support!

    I am calling American Express and disputing the charges for vendor Fraud!

    Hi Craig,

    Sorry to hear that.

    I use Paragon - in large part because the support is astonishingly good.

    Surely Acronis do a 30 day money - back guarantee?

    When you have got your money back - you may wish to have a look :

    Paragon Drive Backup Workstation - Overview

    There is a trial version with limited fuctions.

    There will also soon be Backup and Recovery 10 Suite at a lower price point.

    Any feedback/questions are encouraged on any and all products - including the free versions - either send a support ticket, or post any questions here:

    Official Paragon Support Forum

    Hope it helps.

    I just got hold of the new B&R 10 Suite - it looks very good:

    Made an image of 7o/s partition ( 13.3gb used space)

    Paragon took 7.30 mins and image size 6.38 gb ( default settings)

    Windows System Image took 10 mins image size 9.87gb.

    Th big difference is that with Paragon you can choose which partition to image - you can also choose where to restore it.

    You can't do that with Windows System Image.
