Acronis True Image Echo Workstation would be the best backup software in the world if: 1) Shorten the length of time it takes to analyze partitions before you can use the app initially. Takes way too long. 2) Scheduled Tasks List: Last Run Time and Last Result for "Manually Later" created tasks all dissapear after you restart the computer. This information is very useful to have and should stay there even after a reboot regardless of the type of task scheduled. 3) After doing a complete restore, Full Partition Image Manually Later scheduled task gets all out of whack. When you try to run it (after doing a complete restore), you get a slew of error messages: E00640065: Cannot resolve the source path. Cannot resolve the path to the source. You should edit this task. E00640066: The task script is corrupt. The script contains incorrect or incom script otherwise click Cancel. Cannot find a partition with the path \local\hd-sign(1EC0963B) no source is selected The only way to fix this task is to click "Edit" and go through the whole process without changing anything. After that, it works just as before. 4) Shorten the time it takes to backup and restore. In my system, about 100 GB consisting of the OS. programs and other miscellaneous data, a Full Partition Image backup takes around 45 minutes and a Full Partition Image restore takes around 1 hour and 45 minutes. It would be great if both backup and restore took 45 minutes, or less. For the time being I can live with these annoyances because after dozens of restores, not one failed me. Acronis TruImage restores my system to an earlier, working configuration no matter how badly I screwed things up. And that is what's most important to me.
