    Attention Marian/Acronis-Need Previous Builds

    Marian,

    Is there any possible way to make previous builds of TI available from the update page of your website? This is and has been a major request by many people on this forum and I myself needed to "go back" at one time due to problems in the new build that had just been released.

    This could be a selectable non-warranted download. In other words "Use of previous builds would be at the user's risk".

    Something this simple could and would do a lot for morale for your loyal user base and in addition, put a shine back on the Acronis "image" (no pun intended).

    Thank you in advance for your consideration,

    Mike Wells *puppy*

    Hi, mike_wells

    They are already, and I do not mean the with any Intent. :D

    It is part of any install.

    But it should not be hard to set up as you say Mike.

    Take Care,
    TheQuest :cool:

    Hey my Brother (TheQuest),

    They (Acronis) actually will and do support each build for the current version as it is released. What I was suggesting by stating "use at your own risk" is that NO support would be offered from Acronis if a user is running a build less than the current release. I know that we all use all software at our own risk. I was just trying to provide a means of relief for Acronis. We can not expect them to support on a continuing basis every build for every version. Therefore, if a user chooses to go "back" for whatever reason they would be on their own support wise. Again, we in turn, have to play fair and not make unreasonable requests from our vendor.

    See ya... Mike *puppy*

    Ayeaye,

    mike_wells "king of the backup" was not asking for past builds for himself but then I guess you probably did not read that far!

    Not that I don't like build 627. But I liked build 613 a whole lot better :)

    Thank you, Mike, for taking this initiative :)

    Hey Bolan,

    Who cares about 613, 627 and all the others we've been through since the CD was released in Feb. We got SIX THIRTY FOUR now! Fresh off the compiler this A.M. Now, I just gotta go there. I've already taken my critical HDD image in preparation. Download rate was a tad slow earlier so will go get it here in a short! Update History says SZ fixes only! Wanna bet?

    And, thanks for the pat on the back! *puppy*

    We can upload build 613. But we recommend using the latest build.

    I care about 613 because it is the latest build I can get here.

    Dear Dennis/Acronis,

    Either you did not read the starter to this thread or you failed to understand what it is you did read. And perhaps, I did not make myself understood. What was asked for was a slectable "list" of ALL previous builds for TI7 since production release. Not everyone here wants 613 or any one other particular build. We (the forum members) would like to be able to run the build of our given choice. I also stated (indirectly) that Acronis could stipulate that NO support would be offered if a registered user chose to run a build less than current.

    Given the amount of problems we see with each build relative to machine configuration I would think it would be in Acronis's best interest to grant this more than reasonable request!

    Dennis, it has taken 7 days for Acronis to respond to my thread and the response has little to do with the original intent. Come on "guys"!

    Mike Wells

    Hi, mike_wells

    When posted #8 above as a Bump, there was somebody here logged in at this forum as Acronis Support but they ignored it.

    So do not exspect to much.

    Take Care,

    Mike,

    OK, I got the idea. Thanks for explaining :)
    Unfortunately this needs to be implemented and the implementation will take some time.
    So, we can put a specific build on the web and provide here a link, but at this moment you will not be able choose and select _any_ build to download.

    Hi, Dennis Dementiev

    Thanks you for your quick response.

    Thanks very much, that will help all those who do not for some unknown reason backup their downloads?

    Take Care,

    Thank you very much Dennis. We will looking for the forthcoming links! Either on your website or here. It really does not make any difference as long as Acronis makes them available to their customers!
