I have been trying to resolve the Acronis True Image 8 "Corrupt Image" problem for 6 months. Unfortunately, Acronis technical support has not replied to my many requests for assistance. The problem remains intermittent and appears to be sensitive to background processes, system speed, drive format, etc. The Acronis comments suggest this problem is related to flawed hardware such as the drive, memory, etc. This is technically unreasonable because systems are rarely the blame when only one application fails. I am also very surprised with the number of problem reports posted to this forum. I’ve been in the technology industry for 20 years…I have never seen such unreliable software released to production. The number and scope of the errors suggest code that is more closely related to beta software or freeware. I give Acronis credit for creating the forum, but also criticize their lack of customer service. ~ removed advertisment for competing product ~ (LowWaterMark) Dear Acronis: Can you explain why my defective system works perfectly with competitive software? Thank you.
