Acronis TI 10 build 4940 just came out.
worth it?worth it not?
It contains the first fixes for TI 10, so if you have 10 then I'd say it's worth it. It also contains support (or at least it muddles through) for the P965 chipset and several Vista related fixes.
The way I see it, upgrading to 10 is probably worth it. It has some cool features and the support is likely to be a lot better on 10 as well. Acronis, to their credit, has been excellent, so far, with their support on 10. They have responded in a timely manner to all my (3) private support requests and I can clearly see in this forum they are very responsive to querries.
The best approach - at least for me - to backing up whether it be selected data or full partitions is to backup first to your h/drive, then use a 3rd party burning utility (I use Nero 7) to burn that backup to dvd. I still find that even in version 10 Acronis' direct-backup-to-optical-storage is a little too dodgy for my liking; the validation check always results in error messages using the direct-to-dvd method, but the validation completes successfully if I backup to h/drive first. Maybe others have better success, but I don't find it reliable enough yet.
The most important thing is that I can positively restore backed up data or partitions to a clean, formatted drive with 100% success using the Acronis rescue cd or the program from Windows. That is, in the end, what counts. The Utility is a bit buggy but it does do its most important tasks - backing up and restoring - very well.
Well that depends on your definition of responsive. They generally have a presence in the forum, but the replies tend to be to questions which are 2 - 3 weeks old. I certainly don't think that is worth a pat on the back.
While browsing today I noticed that several of the posts from Acronis Support were replies to posts from yesterday and earlier today.
This thread and this thread.
You think one day they might get caught up?
Most are from Feb. 3rd through the 17th or so.
