Since few years ago when TrueImage was in version 6.x, then 7.x and so on, I was attracted by the nice features promised by it, compared to its main concurent, PowerQuest DriveImage. Despite using normal IDE HDDs and no RAID or other odd combinations, my enthusiasm disappeared quickly after testing it and running in numerous and serious bugs. I remained devoted to PowerQuest, for its reliability and never having troubles on my pcs. From time to time I tested again newer TrueImage versions, hoping for a bug-free and 100% reliable backup options, always being attracted by the newer features added. To my disappointment, I had to stay on my PowerQuest. I migrated later to V2i Protector-successor of DriveImage Pro, and later to Symantec LiveState Recovery. It never let me in trouble, always performed secure and bug-free on my pcs. Again I wanted to try the newer TrueImage, but reading this forum, I stayed away, being afraid of troubles. I sincerely envied the new features added, but...what's the point of all these newer features and nice extras, when BASIC RELIABLE operation is not guaranteed. I'm really sorry to say, but Acronis adopted the same curious and disppointing line, like Ahead Software from Germany (Nero): the product is continously developed, improved..BUT NEVER RELIABLE! That is why I prefere a more expensive software, but RELIABLE, becuase I consider a reliable backup solution much more important than some hundreds or thousands $, the price difference. Same reason make me to adopt Sony (SonicFoundry) DVD Architect instead of Ahead Nero for DVD mastering. Same reason makes me to use LiveState Recovery instead of TrueImage. I really and sincerely admire Acronis software, but it's a pity that things which can be done 100% bug-free with 3 years old PowerQuest software, CAN NOT YET be done the same manner with Acronis! It's a real pity!
