I bought TI to use with Vista, because it was claimed to be Vista compatable. I started noticing quite a few bug reports on this forum, and so I uninstalled (without using it) and have refrained from re-installing it until I felt better about it. ...but I continue to see nothing but more and more problems, even with non-Vista installs, like XP. Then it occurred to me that a lot of people never really do have to restore a corrupted system, and the software instructions, requirements, and procedures are sufficiently convoluted that any "glitch" in the process can always be blamed on some oddball hardware, odd setup, or lack of user knowledge. One could go for years with the illusion of "security" without ever actually having to use the product to fix a corrupted sytem. This would give Acronis "plausible deniability" to market a product that is filled with bugs, but cannot be proven to be an outright swindle. Most people would just get disgusted, rebuild their system from scratch, and buy some other software. ...just a paranoid thought. So help me. Is there anyone who has actually been using Acronis TI for years, and has done some sytem restores and it actually works as advertized ? Is it just the VISTA version that makes things very risky ? Has anybody really wrung the Vista version out successfully ?
