Acronis True Image Home 2012 not working with Windows 8 RTM 64bit

    Fwiw. I am just trying Acronis 2013. (Try and Decide) Runs perfectly in Windows 8. It is much simplified in operation from the previous versions

    I never took to Acronis, not a fan of the intrusivenes and use of boot time drivers.

    Lot of people seem to like it- and I think it is the only one with try and decide.

    Both Macrium and Paragon are more to my taste - portable, unintrusive and and faster than Acronis.

    Upgraded Acronis to 2013 version. "Runs perfectly in Windows 8" ... and the installer only put 1 tile on the start screen!

    I have Acronis 2102 running on my Win7 portion of my dual-boot Win7/Win8 PC. I'll try to see if Acronis runs properly under Win8 this week... I'll report back here with my results.

    As I discovered this week, while it will BACK UP the server products, it will NOT restore them. That was a bummer to find out. Oh well, Macrium Reflect Free can do server products.

    Oops, that's Acronis True Image Home v2013

    I installed Acronis True Image Home 2013 (ATIH) last night and there were no problems at all. I'll test the backup/restore capabilities this weekend and report back. One icon on the Windows 8 screen and all appears well...

    Yeah, I downloaded the trial of Acronis True Image 2013 and am going to play around a bit with it. I logged into the Acronis website and it's only a $29 upgrade fee from my 2010 version. I might be willing to finally upgrade it this year.

    I believe that one of the "enhancements" made to the new version (2013) of the product is the Windows 8 compatibility...

    What version did Acronis start requiring Internet activation? I've been a paying customer of Acronis 2010 and I do use it on a couple of my home personal computers for testing and 1 is my real workstation, but during the eval of the 2013 product, i see that you have to activate the product now over the Internet.

    Unsure if I want to buy 3-5 copies of Acronis, or whether I will just flip over to Macrium Reflect free at this point for my home needs.
