I bought this software several months ago and have never been able to get it to work on any system at all. I am able to create the boot disk no problem, but thats about all that works.....LOL. Most of the time when I create a backup image and then verify it after words it fails the verification process, this happens when putting the backup image on another hard drive in the computer or when I try to put the image on a networked hard drive on another system. It will never verify. On the rare occasion I get a verified copy, my boot disks will only load in safe mode, never the full version, it just hangs at the black screen with the Acronis logo on the top left..... have let it set there for up to a couple hours and it never finishes loading. Booting in safe mode is worthless because it only shows my C: drive and nothing else....... So basically I bought a non functional program that has caused me a lot of grief. Its faster for me just to reload windows from scratch and load all my programs again than messing with Acronis for hours on end not getting anywhere. I have run multiple system tests all all my machines to ensure stability, and everything checks out fine and the systems work great. Either I have some incompatible hardware or some other thing that's going on. I find the program extremely easy to use and I love the layout, but man.... it just doesnt work as the manual and GUI says it will. My latest adventure is on a Sager Laptop that I want to upgrade to a larger hard drive. I created an image of the existing drive and it verified, but the boot disk will only load in safe mode rendering my image file on a network drive unaccessible. Honestly I give up with this program. I thought about buying version 10 but given the headaches of the past, I think I'll look elsewhere for a backup program.
