Guys we are trying to decide on a backup solution for workstations. We are currently trying acronis trueimage. We haven't had any backup failures or anything like that but you hear horror stories across the web about the reliability of acronis. The true test of a backup solution is when you actually have to recover and everything goes smoothly rather than the backups finishing successfully with no errors. Fortunately or Unfortunately, depending on your perspective we won't be able to test that part within the trial period. We require image based backups as well as file based backups so we can quickly get a machine up and going. We just don't want to chance it with acronis if they are having all kinds of reliability issues. We are also looking at Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery 2010. If you can recommend any other products then let me know. Not look for an expensive solution. Ok back to acronis like i said we haven't had any backup failures but the interface and definitely quirky and crashes sometimes. Its not that big of a deal. Not that hard to fire it back up. I can say we do like some of the features of acronis but like i said just worried about the reliability issue. Edit: Will mostly be backing up Windows x64 Machines. Also it would be REALLY nice to have a deduplication option but i think thats only available in high end products (other than windows home server).
