Just started to try Acronis True Image 9 and the new features. One of them is the differential backup. But honestly - I did not get the point. You could do the same with the Version 8 if you take a different name for each incremental backup. So what is really new? The other thing is that you can do backups of folders. I did and then I tried to have a look at the contents of the backup. I could not look at all and of course I could not restore certain files. The only thing I could do is to restore the folder. I hope that I am wrong. If not I never saw a backup like this. WinZip has a better compression and you can look at AND restore any file in the "backup". So please tell me that I am wrong and simply overlooked something in the documentation. One thing I did not test so far. True Image until version 8 had nothing to do with an image of a partition at all. It was not even able to handle a not standard cluster size - what even backup software normally can. In my case after restoring the true image I had to restore MY cluster size and defrag the whole partition again. This has nothing to do with an image at all and the name "True Image" was misleading. I hope that this changed with version 9. Otherwise every backup software could do much better. And Acronis has to change the name True Image since it is misleading the customers - like it did me with Version 8! I did not try yet - if it is in Version 9 like in Version 8 I will be busy for hours to get to a for me usable partition again. But then I will switch to Symantec and ask Acronis for a refund. And again - then Acronis really HAS TO change the name of their somehow backup product - and this from a legal point of view. But I am still full of hope. If anybody has experience with the cluster size and defragmentation in Version 9 already I am grateful for a hint. I could save hours of work to rebuild the partition after restoring the then still UNtrue ?image? again.
