I have to Backup from the Boot CD because I get a corrupted backup every time I attempt to backup in Windows. Acronis does not backup from Windows as it claims to. At least not an uncorrupted backup. Those who do not Validate their Backups probably don't even know that their backups from Windows are probably corrupted. But still, Acronis makes the function optional. Not validating backups is a guarantee of a disaster when one needs to Restore that Backup. And that even Validated backups to disk can turn up corrupted without reason. I wonder how many Acronis users are going to find out the hard way - that their backups are corrupted and useless. I wonder how many Acronis users are going to be real disappointed come that day when they really need this product to do what it is suppose to, what they trusted it to do, what they paid for it to do, only to get the infamous message, Image is Corrupt. Probably most Acronis users out there are going to fall into that category, sooner or later. This seems to be of little concern to Acronis since they have still not made the Validation function integral to the Backup. Now when I backup from the Boot CD I get a corrupted backup every time. So I updated to the new version. Now I can't backup at all. Acronis doesn't recognize the SATA drive on the VIA chip. Adding the "quiet acpi=off noapic" doesn't work. That's why I bought the drive, to backup to, because backing up to DVD with Acronis still does provide an uncorrupted backup, after three versions that were touted as being able to do so. I'm not going to install anything else. I make a living with my computer and can't risk screwing it up because your company releases defective software. I'm not going to let you make your problems mine. I am not going to risk my business by screwing with my computer because Acronis can not provide a working product. Is your product going to work, or has Acronis cheated me out of $60? If you think I'm going to act as your unpaid beta tester, you're crazy. If this is an honest company, than either provide me with a version that works, or provide me with a refund. Or does this company have no shame? I'm a customer, not an unpaid beta tester.
