As the title says a big thank you to Acronis for the latest version of True Image. I have at long last a version that truly works and appears to be without fault. As many of you will know if you have read my posts I have had a long running issue with recoveries using the Acronis Loader. With versions 9 and 10 an image recovery 60 gig had been taking 17 hours (didn’t even try it with version 11). Following Mustangs VistaPE builds thankfully that had been reduced to approximately 25 minutes. I was then very disappointed with all the negative posts I have been reading on this forum regarding True Image 2009. However, I thought nothing ventured nothing gained so downloaded the latest build trial version. I like the new GUI – very much a Vista experience and I don’t find it “dumbed down” as some people have commented. Now for performance – A full backup took 22 minutes – the initial progress bar stated it would take 42 minutes but the progress bar reached the end in 22 minutes with the progress bar still stating 22 minutes to go so that is a little buggy. Now for the acid test i.e. recovery. I didn’t have a VistaPE disk for 2009 so pressed the recovery button with some trepidation. The Acronis loader initially stated 23 hours to go and I thought “here we go again”. However, the 23 hours quickly started counting down and within the minute was now stating 35 minutes and that is how long it took an astonishing 35 minutes to restore 60 gig. I can now use this product with confidence and the plus being I don’t even need to rely on VistaPE for recoveries. For weekly full backups this is the product for me. Thanks again Acronis.
