Are you sure? Windows 7 seems tgo indicate I can backup individual files or
do a system image:

"Decent" is about it. There is no way to do anything except restore the
entire drive. No ability to restore files or folders.

doesn't really care about customer support or problems that has been

I guess all of the dire warnings on Amazon and elsewhere are valid.

Acronis True Image Home 2009 Review
When selecting a data backup, try choosing a specific category...but
deselect a folder or two, as shown above. For this example, I chose to
backup some website files. I continue on and create the backup
previously detailed. Then when I browse the archive in Windows
The files are not there!
This is a major bug in the system, one that causes me to rate the
category-based backup feature of Acronis True Image Home 2009 dead on
Acronis True Image Home 2009 also has issues with removable USB
drives/keys. A few times, when I was testing the backup feature using
USB stick, I would get some kind of error about sector 63 and the
would occasionally fail. A quick search about that message revealed
it is a known bug in the latest versions of Acronis True Image.
Acronis promises that a patch is on the way for the USB bug.

(!) Acronis does not guarantee that images created with a newer build
the product will be supported by older builds. This means that
an image created with Acronis True Image Build 8163 may fail with
True Image Build 8076.
Drives might not contain a valid MBR and therefore are not supported
- The software uses a 64 digit serial code. How much time do Acronis
we've got to waste?!
- Nearly all serial numbers are shipped as being faulty! This is an
ACKNOWLEDGED PROBLEM on Acronis' web site and you should register
instead of through the software itself.
More importantly, if a backup fails you get no notification! Instead it
quietly buries the evidence in the log file in the hope that one day
might browse it and see the failed backup. Come on Acronis, this is our
data we're talking about! If a backup fails I want alarm bells to ring!

digital rights management make it completely unusable
Vista Broken After Restore
It backed up fine to my USB external hard drive (Maxtor 4 Plus). But it
was unable to mount the file it had made, nor to recover with it. Their
tech support said to copy the backup file to an internal drive.
Acronis True Image Home 2009 Conflicts with USB Card Reader Drivers
Acronis True Image Universal Restore - Problems
I did research on this for days and found using search engines this
isn't so. And here I found a reoccurring theme.
1) A different build number won't restore from another one. Will
say the file is corrupt and you can't do anything with it.
2) If a backup fails, it doesn't notify you and stores it deep in the
3) Problems with 64 character serial number reverting back to trial
version at next startup.
4) Has problems with missing MBR or non-standard MBR drives.
5) Has problems with some USB Card Readers.
6) Emailing support takes 5 to 6 weeks for an answer, which usually has
nothing with the problem you are having.
7) Can't restore Digital Rights Management correctly.
