I too use Acronis 2010 on my x64 system, and it has worked flawlessly. Never any issues whatsoever. A Guy

I originally was going to use Acronis as my imaging program but decided to stay away from it for those reasons.
I have experienced none of these problems. I use Acronis True Image 2010 and have for quite some time on a few different machines and it's been flawless for me. I've used it on Win7 64bit and Win7 32bit. It's one of the very few programs that I actually buy that I feel provides greater benefits than free versions.

Just checked and there is nothing embedded in the Control Panel Backup and Restore menu.

The only thing thats embedded, I guess you could say, is in the right click context menu.

So if you Right click a file, or folder, theres a BackUp option.

Im using ATI 2010 as well BTW.

I have used Macrium (free) in the past , when I was looking for a Imaging program.

It does not have all the features ATI does, and is quite basic, but it does the job its intended to do, and quite well. But it is also a free solution, and a far better choice than the built in Imaging IMHO.

I ended up settling with Acronis, because it was the best suited to my needs. Also, I felt it was worth the price to have those extra features.

Thats not saying by any means Macrium is a bad choice.
It all really depends on what you are looking for, and what features you want or need.

Im not very familiar at all with the other two.

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...
