    In defence of Acronis ATH 2015


    Hi there

    I've long complained that the Interface on Acronis is just getting crazier and crazier. They reached the peak level of complexity with ATH 2014. I'm please to see that with ATH 2015 the interface has been totally re-written and has gone back to a much better useability GUI.

    I've never had any trouble in the functionality of Acronis -- does what it says without any issues -- but each succeeding version seems to have got more complicated to use and navigate old backups.

    Finally some sense here -- If you are an ATH 2014 user IMO it's worth paying the 30 USD or so for the upgrade. There's a 30 day FREE trial as well so you can see if you like it without having to cough up any cash first.

    BTW working perfectly on W10 build 9926.

    Cheers
    jimbo

  3. november update problems

    Boot time

    Information 05/12/2015 04:34:12 Kernel-General
    12 None



    Acronis errors:

    Error 05/12/2015 04:37:49 Application Error
    1000 Application Crashing Events

    Error 05/12/2015 04:38:41 Application Error

    Error 05/12/2015 04:38:54 Application Error
    1000 Application Crashing Events



    Acronis version is 18.0.5539 –I think this is the Acronis True Image 2015 Media Add-on and not the main software. It does not appear to be the latest version.



    in fact sometimes i have two loading screen after boot, loading screen will appear then black screen and then loading screen again, i dont know its normal or not



    My inclination would be to uninstall and reinstall Acronis. However, the admissions in this link do not speak well for Acronis programming skills:

    Agreed, Jimbo. But like leaping from XP to Vista. A big change in the interface but, once you find your way around - superb.

  5. I was one of the users who upgraded from ATH 2014 to ATH 2015 and agree that there is a great improvement with the 2015 version however I still miss the "file shredder" & "try and decide" features of 2014.

    Also I hope that version 2015 will still be compatible with Windows 10 when it reaches RTM. I remember when I was using ATH 2013 with windows 8 it was compatible but when I upgraded to 8.1 it would not stay activated and was not fully compatible with 8.1 and no new patches available as ATH 2014 which was recently released was compatible with 8.1 forcing me to upgrade to the newest Acronis ATH.

    I got lucky, I guess?

    At this moment, I am running ATH 2013, activated, on Windows 8.1.

  7. You got lucky as mine would ask to be activated every time I restarted the computer and opened ATH 2013 for the first time once I activated ATH 2013 i had no problems with activation until the next computer restart which I do daily.

    I think every method was tried to solve this including using the ATH "removal tool" then reinstalling ATH 2013 and activating it.

    I have recalled that, very shortly after I installed it, it advised that an update of 2013 was available. This was, of course , free. It installed and removed the previous version. The activation was automatically carried forward.

    P.S Later. For info. Ok. I just uninstalled and reinstalled Acronis 2013 in Windows 8.1 Activated and remains so on reboots. The update was not, this time, installed.

    Hi there

    ATH 2015 is available for 30 days of Free trial -- I believe also if you wish to backup and restore to CLOUD sources (other than acronis's own) for example to Ms's could storage further updates are possibly being planned. However my idea of a restore I could do via Bare metal recovery would definitely be on a Local / LAN device rather than in the cloud where I probably wouldn't have Internet Access where I needed it.

    However I find some of the arguments against Cloud Storage rather disingenuous -- many people have said in the past that to be totally 100% secure you should also keep a set of backup data "Off site" to protect against Loss whether by Human causes (theft, erasure. malicious destruction etc) or by physical damage (fire, flood,etc).

    Now IMO there's totally ZERO conceptual difference between "Cloud Storage" and "Off site" storage. They are both EXACTLY THE SAME FUNCTION with the added convenience that with the CLOUD you don't have to get in your car, drive to the remote off site place, manually retrieve your data and drive it back home again.

    With faster UPLOAD speeds available now on the Internet backing up a second copy of your OS to a cloud server might make sense. The problem is that these sort of backups are around 30 - 40 GB in size and most FREE cloud servers don't give you that much storage.

    Cheers
