Acronis True Image Comments

Do not use on mac os, or period if you can avoid it.

Negative Comment by adamlogan
about Acronis True Image Nov 2016

Whatever you do, don't use Acronis True Image at least not on the Mac. Backing up to the cloud works fine with a desktop app. But recovering files is awful. You have to login at least 3 times via redirects on Safari. Then the download happens through Safari. I was not able to get it to work with a decent download manager like leech. Downloads keep getting timed out, and won't resume even though I have a static ip on my local network. So I am having to go through the directory tree and download it folder by folder. PITA.

about Acronis True Image Nov 2015

Acronis 2016 crashed upon my very first restore attempt of an XP machine. In other words, IT DOES NOT PROTECT YOU WITH A BACKUP which is the only reason the product exists. Jesus Christ.

The box LIES. Do not buy this for an XP machine.

Then again, most I.T. people mock anyone using XP (since they don't understand what productivity is, namely with regard to interface), so good luck being taken seriously with this complaint.

Note - your mileage may vary. I have a very very vanilla 2003 Compaq Presario, 200G drive, Maybe in the 10 minutes that Acronis spent testing True Image 2016 on XP, they assembled a configuration that it actually works on. So YMMV.


Used to be one of the best, now lagging behind

about Acronis True Image Mar 2015

Many of the big name backup software providers are offering cloud backups, but only if you use their cloud storage. On top of that, there aren't any worthwhile features being added. There's no archive option, no sync option between personal devices, no failsafe for laptop backups to stop/resume as necessary and move data to intended location once connection resumes.


So many bugs here and there, thanks alternativeTo which helped me find something else for backup !

about Acronis True Image Feb 2015

A few years ago I run through comparison websites and saw so many times that Acronis True Image was supposed to be the best. Indeed, there are many usefull features that I could hardly find on other software. So I bought it, and regretted.
I faced so many bugs, more or less important, that I definitively decided to find an other software. Many thanks to alternativeTo, which made me discover and compare many software, and finally choose AOMEI Backupper. It is clean and efficient. The support team answers. The only drawback is the linux boot tool which works badly, but the Windows PE is great.
Back to Acronis TI : for some bugs I contacted the support team (I don't remember why, it's too far) and won a free upgrade. But I still face problems like unable to load an image, or very long processes, or windows that don't feet my screen, etc. I'm very disappointed.

The latest versions of Acronis True Image are terrible!

about Acronis True Image and Macrium Reflect Jul 2011

As a long time user of Acronis, the latest versions became terrible. So terrible that I had no trust in it for my computer backups. In the search for a successor I stumbled on Macrium Reflect. It's a great software and so much easier than Acronis True Image. Definitely recommended! You will find it on


Free "TI" for Seagate / Maxtor hard drives without scheduler

Acronis "True Image" for free for owners of a a Seagate / Maxtor hard drive

Owners of a a Seagate / Maxtor hard drive can download the excellent backup solution Acronis "True Image" for free. Seagate DiscWizard is a special version of "True Image", which includes the most important functions of for backups of complete hard disks, but not for backups of single files or folders and only working together with hard drives of the brands Seagate and Maxtor. I found this information on a german [1], download in german language from [1] or in many languages from [2]. The backup-images are very big single files, which you can mount. From the mounted image you can restore single files or folders.

Disadvantages of Acronis True Image / Seagate DiscWizard (ATI-SDW):

  • Biggest disadvantage: No time-scheduler for backups and no call of ATI-SDW per command-line, as it is possible with Macrium Reflect Free Edition. Because of this very important disadvantage this comment is negative and I think Macrium Reflect Free Edition is the best schedulable free System-Backup-Solution.
  • No automatic cleanup of old images, but because the images are single files, you can use my personal solution for this cleanup-task with my batch-file Del.Older.than.P2-Files.bat for the cleanup. The same method can be used with Macrium Reflect Free Edition. With this method you give the new backup in the folder "Drive:....\Backup-Folder\m0" (month 0). You always have the latest X=5 backups in the subfolders of "Drive:....\Backup-Folder" m0, m1, m2, m3, m4, m5. The name of "Drive:....\Backup-Folder\" you can freely select as command-line parameter %1 and the drive as %2.
