Hi - I see that it's £15.95 to upgrade my TI 11 to 13, but can anyone advise if i should a) keep 11, b) upgrade or c) use Easeus instead?

Acronis say's it supports Windows 8 (which I haven't got), has a free mobile app (which I probably wouldn't need) and also syncs stuff.

Thanks

exdragon,

I upgraded from Acronis True Image 10 Home to Acronis True Image Home 2012 a year or so ago and, to say the least, I am unimpressed. It was slower to make an image backup file (about twice as long) and I received several error messages when trying to backup and to verify the backup file.

I tried to uninstall Acronis True Image Home 2012 and reload Acronis True Image 10 Home, but was unable to reload Acronis True Image 10 Home.

I would be very careful about upgrading unless the new version provides something you really need. Have a look at the Acronis forum to see more comments and more in depth views.

Peter.

Thanks, chaps. Perhaps it's a case of, 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it'. Although I do seem to have lots of problems with Acronis ever since I upgraded from, I think, 8.

I only use it to create Image Backups, this will work all versions of windows if using Acronis CD or rescue disc to boot from, This you can Create and Restore from

I gave up on Acronis some years ago as each year I was pestered with upgrade invitations and to be honest the upgrades did not seem to be offering much I wanted. In fact I felt that Acronis was just becoming bloated with totally irrelevant functions

Since moving to an SSD I find it easier to clean install should I need to, everything personal is on other HDD's then back up both via DropBox and a NAS drive.
