Testimonials and User Comments
I have just bought Acronis True Image 6.0 following diastrous experiences with Powerquest's new version of Drive Image which stopped my PC from rebooting!
I have never written to a software publisher in praise of anything but, in this instance, I find that your product has so impressed me, and in this regard I speak as a software author myself, that I simply must let you know how supremely competent Acronis True Image is.
I've already done a couple of complete system restores of an XP installation from image files on my network, one from within XP and the other by using the boot CD. In each case the restore was flawless.
I am particularly impressed by the drive mounting facility and the fact that this works at the operating system level rather than requiring the use of a special viewer applet which PowerQuest's product requires.
Quite how a utility running on a Microsoft operating system is able to lock the system drive and then bypass the API so that a disc can be read at the sector level is a mystery to me but this is exactly what Acronis True Image seems to do and with great reliability.
So well done Acronis, I shall be recommending Acronis True Image to everyone I do business with.
