That aside, installed and set it up w/ little difficulty - but you need to look a little deeper and realize you need to set up separate backup profiles to accomplish what you want to accomplish, e.g., a full sys backup and an ongoing backup. Ok, makes sense. Never trusted "do it all" backups - e.g., Seagate's proprietary setup on external drives. Don't ask....
Then, working on a totally unrelated issue involving a printer install, went to reboot my WinX PC and Acronis pops up saying it's terminating current operations - presumably the ongoing backup - and that the PC will shut down in 2 minutes. 15-20 minutes later it's still running, so went online via iPad and found numerous complaints by other users who have waited HOURS and sometimes overnight waiting for this booby trap to shut down so they could continue on with their lives. Not that patient so pushing 20 minutes with no end in sight hit the hard reset and .... and .... and .... nothing. PC wouldn't boot up. Coincidence? I think not. Been around the barn too long to believe pigs are parakeets, and after several reboot attempts went into diagnostics and system restore to turn back the clock 24 hours. (Whew! MS has it's faults, but sys restore is a cherry lifesaver!) Booted back up and took another look at Acronis and all it would do is pop up a "Hey, we crashed your computer do you want to send us a report?" dialogue box over and over and over.... Can't open the program to make any changes. Seems all it wants to do is give me more opportunities to point out that NASA is getting ready to send manned flights to Mars and that meanwhile down here on man-infected earth you can't even find a decent backup software to work the way it's supposed to ... without crashing your PC, that is.
Moral of the story: Going shopping for another backup solution.... One that actually works w/o the one hour "wait a minute" shutdown failure caused by Acronis. Children! Put an abort or pause & shutdown button in the dialogue, fer cryin' out loud! Ridiculously wasted POJ (piece of junk) for having to spend that much money on it. Once bitten, they say, and having spent the last 2+ hours trying to get past the errors and omissions caused by this software I'd be inclined to say it's indeed #1 ... a #1 royal pain in the you know what. So is it going to prevent PC shutdown and reboot every time we go to make a change to our machine? Not having it: Uninstall in progress. Can't risk it frying or corrupting PC OS or trashing drives or files.
What it does very well:
It clones disks very well. This is a valuable function for those who can't sleep at night wondering if they will survive a computer crash. A bootable clone disk is the fastest way to recover your system complete with programs. Who wants to have to reinstall programs? Not me.
It creates a full system backup and allows the user to easily schedule backups.
It creates non-stop backups, backing up everything that changes, but does not include the Documents folder (Why?).
Where it crashes and burns:
It does not recover individual files and folders easily using the process inside the program. I have never successfully got it to work. It hangs up and I only receive the message "Queued" at the bottom of the program screen. It has no other feedback than that. I have been able to go to the backup file directly on an external hard-drive and find and copy the file or folder successfully.
The interface does not work consistently and contains some interesting glitches like checkboxes that don't show check marks. There are no titles or popups to tell what icons represent. Yes, you can find your way around by clicking...if you have the time. There is a help file, but it is not very helpful in troubleshooting.
It does not allow for partial backups. Forget just backing up an important folder or folders.
More often than not it does not provide feedback to give the progress on what is happening in a process. When it does, the feedback can disappear...never to return. You just have to hope that the process will complete successfully.
The program crashes...it has done so several times in the span of several days...with the old Windows info box coming up saying that True Image has stopped working. This does not instill in me a lot of confidence in this product. Also, my computer has hung up several times and had to be restarted after installing this program. I suspect it is the non-stop backup feature. I have turned that off to see if that will help.
The upside is that I will probably continue to use this product to clone disks and do a full back up, but I will rely on my Norton backup utility for partial backups and FolderMatch for syncronizing folders and detecting duplicate files.
Would I recommend this product...no...not in its current state. Come on, Acronis, clean up this program and you might gain more confident users.
Additional comment: I wound up uninstalling this program because it would cause my computer to hang up or crash while it was backing up or performing some unexplained task. What a waste of money. I changed my rating to one star.
I reinstalled Acronis and an update message appeared. I just said yes to install the update, and now the program appears to be working properly so far. There were several changes to the interface...labels appeared next to the icons...this makes navigation so much easier. I will be testing out the program over the next few weeks a post any additional findings here. I am currently upgrading my review to three stars.
My opinion is this software is not even to the point of half backed and appears to be not formally tested. Another issue is they appear to be forcing buyers into a cloud back-up solution to get individual files because it would not work locally. My self and many others that practice safe computing cannot have internet connections due to security risks, cloud is not an option and will NEVER be considered.
Referencing your description "Restore your entire computer to its exact previous state or just restore selected files and folders" it appears the later part is not fully disclosing that you need a cloud subscription to get selected files restored. It does (did until it stopped) save what I am assuming is an "image". Their is no way I can validate that it if can actually restore from an image due to the instability of the software, just because it might not work.........At this point Acronics has been "uninstalled", they also leave their crap on your machine, you will need to regedit and remove Acronis from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, HKEY_CURRENT_USER / Software/ Acronics and other places. NOT very professional leaving a "trail" after an uninstall.
