I recently purchased Acronis 2014 and it was nothing but a horror. I should of read the reviews on Amazon after I saw u received on 2 stars. I had nothing but issues and freezes and finally deleted it from my Win 7 PC and Laptop. I not even going to try and get my money back. It was a bad experience. I was sold on the fact that I wad running Acronis Ture Image on my XP box and it worked great.
Now to the question: Any suggestions as to a simple, user friendly Cloning software. I only need to clone the drive on my HP Pro box and my HP Pro Book by using the 2 extra internal drives In a BlacX Dual HDD Docking Station. I clone the entire drive as a backup drive in case the drive goes out in my PC or laptop. I have read about the freeware of Macrium and it seems to do exactly what I need. If that is ur recommendation, then I need the link to just download it and not all the extra that goes along with some sites. I am already down $80.00 and refuse to deal with Acronis again. They just don't care about their customers. BTW, I talke to a tech and had to install a cleaner to totally get rid of the software and according to the Acronis tech, Win 7 wont totally uninstall the program. It prevented me from shutting down my computers and after reading more article, seems like a lot of people had the same issue. Ill be wait for some recommendation. Simple and user friendly and free if possible : - )
