    Does this mean that the next version of True Image will have the bloat and confusion removed from the UI and there will be less chance of it crashing?

    Works for me

    I've used Acronis True Image for several years and never had any issues with it. I think they sell a quality product, IME.

      Re: Works for me

      Oh it works for me. I rely on TI2010. I just have to accept that:

      *It will take nearly a minute after double clicking the icon before the UI is capable of responding to me.

      *Clicking on almost anything will have a half second delay minimum response time. When moving between major areas of the UI that will be a couple of seconds.

      *If I try to look at too many historic snapshots the UI will crash.

      *When restoring from USB boot(*) it will be nearly 15 minutes before I reach the 'go for it' point. It actually takes nearly as long to navigate the recovery UI as it does to restore the data.

      So yes. It works. I rely on it. But bloody hell it's like having my teeth pulled sometimes. My server is only an Atom based thing with 1GB of RAM but I don't experience this with anything else.

      (*)Something I do every couple of months with a scratch HDD I keep to hand. I like to know that my backups really will restore.

    Used to be a great product

    I think they lost their way 2 or 3 years back, though.
