Make no mistake. I'm not talking about Acronis MigrateEasy or Acronis Disk Director Suite. These 2 Acronis programs are aces with me.
I had a problem with Acronis True Image though. The problem was IT DIDN'T WORK!!! And I tried, believe me. I don't have that problem now. I threw away & deleted all my copies of ATI I could find.
Just a couple of points here. If ATI works for you fine.
And when I talk about any of these mentioned programs. I'm refering to the rescue, bootable or CD image of the programs. Not the installed, works within Windows versions. Why have it installed, when I don't have to. And also these programs work much better outside of the Windows enviroment.
I found a replacement for ATI.
Paragon Hard Disk Manager Pro/Recovery CD Image v8.0. It's easy & safe & tested (by me).
The whole program is less than 40MB.
Just did my 2nd image backup with it. Success again. The GUI makes it almost as easy as Acronis MigrateEasy.
Just an fyi. Cheers.
