my experience with acronis-

a zillion people on these forums like/love acronis backup. last fall
i tried to put it on the pc, it installed fine but would not backup.
the acronis engineers spent 3 weeks trying to get it to run, and that
includes techs supervisory techs and management techs. they were on
the phone with me every day. they remote operated my pc upwards of
6hrs a day 7 days a week. they ran every test on my pc they could
come up with, the pc passed them all. it never did run. finally they
told me they could not get their product to work on my pc, and gave
me my money back. they mentioned that my pc is not the only 1 they
could not get their product to run on. i am currently running norton
save and restore which works fine.

Norton Save and Restore was preloaded on my Dell. But it did backs up in compressed format of some sort. Thats a no-no.
