Has anyone tried the latest Acronis software yet?
Not me. I bought 2011 earlier this year and apparently I have to pay for 2012. In any case I'm not sure I want to risk it. I know that TI2011 works because I've gone through a full disaster recovery scenario including resizing a disk. Unfortunately I've also seen a few crashes and got fed up waiting for the damn' UI. I think I'd rather leave well enough alone for now.
Oh but here are some rough timings to show how badly the UI performs:
* Starting TI and getting to the point where it will show available restores - about two minutes.
* Booting off the rescue disk and getting to the point where it actually starts writing to the disk - fifteen minutes.
I've no idea why it's so damn slow. I'm running it on a 1.6GHz Atom but still - it shouldn't be that clunky. Especially the recovery console.
Perhaps if TI2012 has definite reports of a faster UI and fewer bugs I might be interested but that's not the impression I've had so far. The report I read suggested it was just the addition of features I don't want and the usual bugs :-/
The best I can say for ATI is that I know it works. Beyond that I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. If Windows backup had the ability to delete backups over a certain age I'd have stuck with that.
