2.0 out of 5 stars It Might Look Attractive, But Try Living With It! 16 Jun. 2013
Like some glamorous stars, this package looks good superficially, but day to day use reveals its many weaknesses.

On the plus side I was able to successfully recover files and disc images with it. However, it soon became frustrating to use and made me feel anxious, as above everything else, a recovery package must inspire confidence. Acronis True Image 2013 failed on that.

This software gets very good reviews, but I doubt whether the testers actually try it for long, or test it thoroughly. It ticks many boxes, as it can do many things, so receives a high score. In fact it is full of bugs. Like, for example, when using the recovery disc, if you move a window it does not repaint properly. Like when setting the number of incremental backups before the next full backup, and it gets it wrong. Like when I added the update patch and lost my internet connection (I restored and retried 3 times, but this happened every time).

It is also heavy on the computer's resources, and slow to respond.

I have changed now to EaseUS ToDo Backup Home 6.0, and after exhaustive testing have found it rock solid, stable and reliable. It doesn't do quite as many things as Acronis (almost though) but it does what it does reliably. I would not recommend Acronis True Image 2013.

4.0 out of 5 stars Email backup problems 15 Feb. 2013
By Derek
I received ATI 2013 as a present so I'm reviewing as a user and not the buyer.
I had previously used ATI 2010 on Windows XP and found it to be very good so was keen to have ATI 2013 on my new Windows 7 computer. My first impressions were good. The user interface is very good and intuitive to use. Unlike backups using Windows Live Backup you can access the individual files backed up. I found this very useful with ATI2010 when I had accidentally deleted some files.
I started out by doing backups of Partitions, Documents including photos, and Emails. I found it possible and easy to direct specific backup types to different hard drives, internal and external.

The problems started when I attempted Windows LiveMail backups which all failed. After trying different approaches I got onto Acronis support and then a 3 week phase of communications started with more than 40 Emails exchanged and 2 long Remote Assistance sessions. I uploaded Process Monitor Logfiles (typically 130MB zipped) and Task Manager Dump Files to aid Acronis' specialists to identify the cause.

Eventually on the second Remote Assistance session their specialist found that the failures were caused by 2 of the Windows LiveMail Inbox subfolders I had created. At this point I was happy to pinpoint the specific root cause of the backup failures. By removing various types of Emails I found that the failed backups were caused by Emails received with photo attachments. Other attachments such as Word, Excel and Powerpoint did not cause failures nor did Emails with photo attachments in the `Sent' box or .eml messages. I removed the inbox files with photo attachments and the backups were successful. I have now created an Inbox subfolder for `Email with photo attachments' and exclude these Emails from the backups.

Acronis True Image is a program I first discovered several years ago when the software I had used for a few years was quite suddenly discontinued. I have now used it for many years and find it quite indispensable. I have recommended it to many friends and relatives, several of whom have now become dedicated users.

On initial start-up you will be presented with a four-tab menu comprising Get Started, Backup and Recovery, Synchronisation and finally Tools and utilities. This simplifies the various groups of functions and mostly presents associated items together. Tools and utilities comprises a mixed bag of items that don't really fit anywhere else.

Its most obvious and probably most often-used function will be to perform backups which can either be disk-based on a complete drive or partition, or a data backup of certain directories. You can have a mixture of both, if that is what you want, schedule them to run daily, weekly or monthly at a specific time and day of the week. Provided that you use a distinctive name for the different files, you can have as many different backup series as you wish. It will allow either full (standalone and separate) backups or an incremental series where only the changes from one period to the next are backed-up after an initial full backup. Obviously, in the event of a disk failure, you can recover your data and place it back on the original drive. Although its files are in a specialised and compact format, it is possible to open them and to extract a single file, directory or several in the event that something may have been accidentally deleted.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a let down! 15 April 2013
By colin
Verified Purchase
Had purchased Acronis True Image 2010 and it was very good so I thought I could not go wrong with the new release
Wish I had not bought it, after installing I kept getting error messages about "comm stop working" and many program would not load
after I had a look on the internet I found many people had had the same problem and there was no solution I could find so I had to uninstall it, £26 for nothing!!.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly simple user interface
Makes it easy to do backups. Only 4 stars as I haven't had to actually recover anything yet, which is the most important thing, so I can't comment on how well that works.

5.0 out of 5 stars This works fine
Have used an earlier version, but, having upgraded to Windows 8 I find this easy to use, it works fine and is much faster than the old version.
