    First of all, I would like to say Acronis tech support really blows! What really sucks is I am to blame by my company for choosing this product. We have 30 Windows 2003 servers local and another 15 abroad. I chose this product because of its ability to image off servers. I was really hoping to make a quick come back for disaster recovery purposes.

    I needed a little support when we first bought the product so I called tech support. After talking with them for about 10 minutes the guy became so frustrated by the language barrier he hung up the phone on me. I called back really upset. The next guy was talking to me and had the same problem. I speak English by the way. He told me to use the tech support email because there was a language barrier, and that email support would be fairly quick. Wrong! Email support takes about 3 days or more! This is what I get for enterprise support.

    I shouldn’t have to post enterprise support questions on a forum, when I am paying for support. Does CA, or Symantec force people to do this? Anyway, I copied actual error logs from my backups as well as screen shots and emailed support problems I have had since. It has taken at least 3 days for them to get back to me and their response is very lame. I’ll be talking to my rep today or tomorrow.

    Re: Frusterated

    I certainly agree you shouldn't have to post on a forum if you paid for enterprise support! In the purchase contract or whatever, was a minimum response or resolution time stated? If you don't have that pinned down you are a bit further out on the limb.

    I am surprised by the number of people with similar complaints regarding the high-priced option. For a $40 home product you can't expect much but for the enterprise product being used on mission critical machines it is terrible.

    Good luck.

    Well, I'm really frusterated with the language barrier thing. This is a big problem and felt I was slapped in the face. To be told to use email support instead of calling in is an insult! Then to use email support and them dance around it makes life even worse. I'm not new to this at all and have been very detailed in my support email. Even copying and emailing Acronis the Log and build number of the product. Unfortunatley I will have to post my problems until I can get off this product. We have a year maintenance and just bought the product. The only support I really did get was from my rep who contacted an American who worked for Acronis on the East coast. Sorry for the gripe, but this is aimed at people who are thinking about buying this product for the enterprise.

    Regardless of the circumstance, unilaterally hanging up on a customer should not be an option, ever.
    If you have purchased an AMPS contract, you shouldn't have to go through these hoops. I'd suggest contacting your rep now, don't wait a day, don't wait an hour. From what you've said, this shouldn't be your problem, put the ball in their court.
