Stay AWAY from Acronis True Image - Total GarbageWare.
Acronis True Image is Absolute GARBAGE - they used to be reasonably good/functional about 10 years ago, but ever since 2007 and up, their software continues to get worse and worse by the day... truly bug-laden, and so dysfunctional to the point of not being able to restore a machine to a bootable state (which is the primary reason for using such a product). Stay AWAY from this company and run over to a competitor like Macrium Reflect which is everything Acronis True Image *SHOULD* be, but isn't. Reflect gets things right and properly protects your OS and precious data.
Nothing to like...
... except for UNINSTALLING this product from my computer!
Acronis is simply too broken to be improved.
They need to scrap the existing code base and start over from scratch with new management and developersMore
Not as fast as advertized.. Instantly recover? It took 40 minutes for my system to recover with Acronis. Macrium free only took 30 minutes.More
TI2015 often crashes. TI2015 often crashes and you need to reinstall it again recreating backup plans. very Bed
Fast and easy for everybody, very useful..
It's very fast and easy to use and It has helped me lot of times when I have needed restore my OS's.

Try it to make and restore an image; otherwise keep far away!.
I made the error of "upgrading" to three copies of 14 premium. It refuses to make image backups! the same bugs are there, including failure to save one's settings! it's worse than the last couple of versions!! i got great results from backup of images, but have used nothing else in it (too scared to for good reason). It's worthwhile if it works (try it) but otherwise don't take the risk!
When it works it makes-restores images well.
A couple of bugs, only, seem to be fixed --- such as ultra-slow extraction of individual files.
Bugs still there after a few new versions.
Can't image backup! Complains also about 900GB being not enough for a 200GB backup!!!More
Compute with confidence they say, I do too.
After years of using of Ghost (you can store as much backup as you want... but don't wait for a recover !) discovered Acronis five years ago (a REAL saving program in an Acer computer) and ... computing is easy now.
I'm HAPPY :-)
About bugs, never found one on four differents machines, Windows XP, Vista and Seven (32 & 64 bits).
As many programs, the very last version is less clear, they try to make it more -too- simple. If you're not able to use a computer, use a toy or a mac!
The only bad point : no translationsMore
