Well I'm getting a little sick of this to be honest. Every year it seems Acronis marketing dept decides "we need some money" and they go and re-brand the software, leaving users of previous versions out in the cold despite the fact that they may have purchased add-ons or maintenance contracts for these. (for example, I have a 1-year agreement for True Image Echo + Universal Restore, but both are now discontinued... so they are useless). I am writing this post to find out what the real differences are between TI Echo WS and the new "Backup & Recovery" product. for which they want $66 to "upgrade". SO I guess it's safe to assume there will be no more improvements or fixes to TI Echo and unless I cough up the $66, I might as well toss the software into the bin as it won't be supported under Windows 7 etc. So disappointed, I have spent hundreds on Acronis software "upgrades" over the years and despite its popularity, they have often failed to fix long-standing bugs, instead choosing to abandon "old" products and launch flashy new marketing campaigns to attract naive new buyers.
