While it is true that Acronis True image appears to garner all the praise on the planet for a backup program, it does have it's detractors, I am one of them. I had used Acronis 10 Home for some time, but got errors during backup and restores because the scheduler and other parts clogged up my PC, causing it to hang, or wreck the image file I was trying to use.
Macrium does not have these faults and works THE FASTEST I have seen in comparison to Acronis WD or Seagate products.
In fairness, though, Paragon Backup 10, does have a list of features on it's plate and in it's Linux bootable CD, that make others envious - But is Very slow and daunting to others IMHO since many may not use all that jazz.
