I've purchased and upgraded all versions of Acronis and have never been able to successfully use any. I allways hoped that the latest version would allow me to backup without giving me the 2-3 days backup time message. I recently downloaded and install the latest version (Trial) and when the program got to the point I always dreaded (actual backup & indicated required time) the program informed me that the trial version does not allow this operation and purchase would be required to complete the process. This is the point which is most important to me because this is where the program has always been unsuccessful to complete. Is there a way I can confirm whether this version works for me without having to purchase and possibly be disappointed again as with all past versions? And Oh yes, I have already gone through tech suppost and provided requested info with all previous versions and issue was never resolved and I have not once been able to use the program.
