How is Acronis 2013? (Windows xp, vista, win8)

How is this program?  I had problems with a previous version; it was good to copy a drive but other features bombed out.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It is alright in my opinion.  If this is just for a home PC there are plenty of other free resources to backup your data.  Or are you looking to image your PC?

Acronis kind of lost me as a customer ever since v11 which bombed for the virtual environment anyway for me.
