I used to be an advocate for Acronis Image Server back when it actually worked in version 8-9, but upgrading to any version after that was a HUGE mistake !!! Is there ANYTHING that actually works with the latest version of Acronis Image Server ? What happened, did Acronis get a whole new team of developers that ran the product into the ground ?? Previously, I could simply boot from the Acronis rescue disk and mount my remote NAS device to perform backup or restore without any problems. However, Acronis 2009 has been NOTHING but problems right from the start. I boot from the Acronis 2009 rescue disk and try to mount to the NAS the same way I was always able to before, BUT now I get "invalid file name" and of course can't browse the remote drives even after verifying the IP and user credentials. So I decided maybe I needed to get the latest update for 2009 and see if that would help. I created a new rescue disk and NOW I get "Connection failed, please verify username and password". I KNOW the credentials are good and this NEVER had a problem before with previous versions of Acronis. I am HIGHLY RELUCTANT to put my faith into Acronis for my backup purposes and surely WILL NOT promote Acronis as a viable backup software anymore !!!
