Does anyone else find the directions "impossible" to follow? It is needlessly confusing to be "sure" exactly what is being restored.
Yes, needlessly confusing.
That is a minor annoyance; I spent good money on this pgm., only to have it error on me more than once. If you google acronis error, you will get a boatload of hits. Their website has continual patches & fixes, almost as bad as M$oft.
My feelings are, if you spend all the time learning this program, updating/patching, researching error messages, & then in the end, the backup doesn't work anyway, why bother?
Instead of all that needless hassle, I simply try my best to keep the system "clean"; Back up my critical files regulary; If I get into trouble, system restore is always an option, & if that doesn't work, then I will reformat as a last resort. It would be nice if there was a "Rock Solid" backup option, but not with this software, IMHO...
