Pros: The ability to virtualize from your backup media is a huge asset. This means that if your server fails, you can boot it up in a virtual environment and get it all configured in about 30 minutes. Having a VM fail-over server is the best part of this backup.

Cons: The interface to recover can be confusing. It's best to start with a totally erased, non-formatted recovery drive. If it's formatted already it might map partitions incorrectly. Full recovery outside of VM can be slower than Windows Server Backup.

Pros: I love the ease of use of the product. It easy easy to implement and easy to manage day to day. A DR
solution is something that you have in place and hope you never need it. However, when you do , Acronis really makes me look great to my clients!

Cons: Cost. I am a small business owner and really have to watch my bottom dollar closely. I can always use a discount!

Pros: Allows me to easily and quickly backup my laptop. By doing FULL backups, I can easily restore my laptop completely whenever necessary - allows me to restore my laptop to EXACTLY how it was when I did the backup - no additional work or product installs! Very reliable. Support is awesome.

Cons: Some of the features are not real intuitive, Not to easy to customize, but you don't need to do much customizing if you understand the product.

Pros: The software allows system backups and also allows virtual ones. I was able to get the system up and running virtually pretty quickly. Love the options of Hyper-V or VMware conversion

Cons: The options to get the backup converted to a virtual was a little difficult to do. It took going to the online help to get a successful virtual after many failed attempts.

Overall: The ability to convert a physical to a virtual server

Pros: I've been using Acronis Backup for a few years and never had any problem. It's amazing how fast you can backup a drive of 100GB or more!

Cons: Some versions had a complex GUI and I always had some questions, but now they fixed it and everything is straight forward and easy to understand. I wish they had a lower price on this too.

Overall: Very good backup and recovery software!

Pros: Our Acronis backup scheme works very well in protecting our main file server. The backup process is quick and offers a lot of options, across a number of different backup devices. It's also very easy to spin up another image of a downed server in a short amount of time. It has saved me when one of our VM's was corrupted, and it was very easy to retrieve files from archived images.

Cons: The set up can be a little daunting, especially when working with virtual server technology. Also, there customer support site can be a little overwhelming to wade through for the uninitiated. You have to really identify your issue before sifting through all the support articles. The online manuals were pretty straightforward but did require some study before getting started.

Overall: Like I said in my review, the virtual image backups are really easy to work with once set up correctly, and can definitely save you from headaches when a server blows up on you. You basically just point to your image, and spin it back up when disaster happens.

Pros: The ability to schedule backups after closing. We need our VM servers backed up daily for medical records and patient files.

Cons: Slows down the network resources when running during the day. Also backing up multiple servers has to be done as two separate backups at different times and if they overlap, the backups fail.

Cons: Not many cons, but here's a couple I could think of if I nitpick:
I wished the remote management was automatic.
Doesn't include cloud storage.

Pros: I once had a backup server fail and it was a nightmare. I found others had success with Acronis so I gave it a shot and am very impressed by how easy it is to use. Plus, their support has been really helpful. Knock on wood- we haven't experienced anymore failures but I'm more than confident in the backups.

Cons: I haven't found anything to dislike. It's stable and we've found it to be reliable. Therefore, Acronis is well worth the investment if you're in the market for a workhorse of a backup solution.

Pros: Fast backup speeds, Private encryption. It has lots of features and support for virtual environments, which is why it's our best pick for virtual backup. It also advises if backup was successful and if not, where the error lies.

Cons: It doesn't have any two-factor authentication which is a plus to have. Being able to create backups on removable USB hard drives that are taken away for offsite storage when full could be better. You can make it happen but the process doesn't feel as smooth as the rest of the software

Pros: The web based console to control all my backups in one place, and not having to remote onto a machine to start a backup or create a backup profile is great. The fact that incomplete backups can resume from where they left off, and i have the option of target locations to do backups

Cons: Initially the software upgrades can take quite long or not complete at all. Sometimes the seed load is seen as a separate backup, and the incremental backups take up more space than they should.

Pros: My business partner and I looked at this software, mostly because they use block-chain to secure the data. The software was a little too expensive for us personally, but for larger companies it would be fine.

Pros: I have used this software for backing up both on-premise servers to the cloud, and backing up cloud applications such as Office 365. It is in it's second iteration now, which seems to be much improved. It has a nice multi-tenant feature so I can manage multiple client through once pool of storage. No per device or user licensing costs is very nice.

Cons: When it first came out, it required an agent, even for cloud-to-cloud backups. This is now seemingly fixed so it's less of an issue. The web interface can be painfully slow at times.

Pros: Acronis has been my personal backup software of choice for my own office for several years, it has a huge degree of configurability, could look for in a backup product.

I find that it does though, require some degree of technical awareness to configure and utilize properly

Cons: Interface can be intimidating and /or confusing, for less technically proficient and users. Can present them with too many options and choices.

Overall: A reliable backup software that can be precisely configured as needed

Pros: It is easy to use and performs well if the underlying operating system is the right and supported versions. Using the created boot disk and using that to image and build systems (older version) was easy.

Cons: The newer interfaces are horrible. I understand trying to make it more idiot proof but hiding away features under a simplistic interface means advanced users have to really dig to find the tools needed. Seriously, I've tried to get end users to get this software and do their own backups but it doesn't do much more than the built-in backup utilities so it would be better if they focused on more advanced tech users as their customer base.

Overall: Fast system deploys. Able to image a system including OS state before tinkering for troubleshooting purposes. Restores are fast if using the boot disk.

Pros: Due to frequent changes in the software, such as Updates and new installations or even the risk of viruses make it absolutely necessary to make regular backups. I have been using Acronis for many years and have never been disappointed When I had to restore the system it worked great! I like it best that you can search the backups at any time and copy data from it. Thus one can repair small problems also on the fast. The possibility to restore the backup also on changed hardware or to integrate own drivers round out the whole still.
The rescue media has worked on every computer so far and is regularly updated with new features. Almost every year under the Extras menu you will also find new functions such as system integration or tools from third-party manufacturers. If you want to be on the safe side, you can also use the Try & Deside function to undo system changes immediately. The backups can even be converted into a virtual machine via detours and integrated in Virtual Box, which allows you to try everything without risk.
All in all a must have for me!

Cons: Some years ago there was the possibility to buy a Plus version. In this one got additional futures. This was later abolished and the futures were so available. For some reason, parts of it did not exist one or two years later. That was not enjoyable then. In the meantime, the best futures are back and everything is fine!

Pros: The price is affordable for a small office and it was easy to download. Setting it up was not hard either.

Cons: Like they say you are only as good as your last backup if your server crashes. We had many difficulties with Acronis performing full and incremental backups. We would schedule daily backups over night (they could take 5-6 hours) only to find out the next day there were errors. It never seemed we could go a full week without some sort of error. We went with another backup program after 6 months of use.

Overall: When it worked we had peace of mind. But more often then not there were errors and that was unacceptable for a backup.

Pros: Acronis is very good for what it does -- it takes backups quickly; the backups are easy to manage, and it offers all of the basic features you'd expect if you came from a legacy solution like BackupExec.

Cons: Sometimes... it just acts weird. I've had to have support come in and run scripts against our backup database several times in the last few years, because it just gets in a weird funk (for example, showing "next start" for some backups as being in the past, or perpetually showing a task as "running" even though it completed weeks ago. Support is quick to help, though, and solves the problem every time.

Pros: You can create an image of a system and then easily restore it. This functions well not only for backup/restore purposes, where in case of a disk failure you can recover everything, but for migration too. I used it to install the OS on 5 different computers with the same configuration and it saved me a lot of time (just installed on one and then cloned that on the others).

Cons: With a bit of search you could find freeware alternatives that have some of its functionality (not all though).

Overall: Very good especially for cloning and migrating.

Pros: The backup software that comes with Mac and Windows are a bit rudimentary. Better than nothing, but very bare bones. And if you've ever had a Mac OS Time Machine restore fail on you, well...you only need to have that happen once before you lose your trust in it. If you're looking for a more robust and reliable local backup solution, this is the solution that you're looking for.

Cons: I moved from Time Machine to this, so I miss the ability to restore specific files quickly. But I very much rather have a backup I trust will work when a restore is needed.

Overall: A reliable backup solution for my work PC.

Pros: Excellent tool that helped us save hours and hours of work, minimized the effort of reinstalling the complete OS and rest of the user software when we exchanged the HDD.
Disk cloning is a great feature, bootable media builder was our superhero.

Cons: Sometimes there are issues with cloning the disk to a HDD that with less capacity.
Partition needed to be resized before we could clone it.

Pros: This is a good software for Backing up and restoring computers. You can create an image of a computer and even restore it to a totally different brand computer as long as you have the drivers. It has secure options like encryption and password protection which is nice.

Cons: Thi software does everything that it says it does. We did have an issue once with HP computers but after updating the the latest build it fixed the issue.

Overall: Great backup and restore software with great security options.

Pros: Converting VM is my favorite. Currently, Acronis supports Citrix XenServer, Microsoft Hyper-V, Red Hat Virtualization, and VMWare ESXi. I have worked with other vendors and the experience was, almost successful, but also complicated. Backup and restore it takes just a few clicks and work flawlessly.

Cons: Cloud storage is not included, hopefully in the future. I had some problems doing remote management. I believe it's a matter of time to do it quickly and automatically-.

Overall: Managing VM always was a challenge. With Acronis it's super easy and it's in my top 5 products.

Pros: Very intuitive and easy to use. I have trust in the product and support. It operates so well in the background that I have a schedule for myself to keep verifying that it is operating. No pop ups to purchase more services.

Cons: I had one update that had to be ran twice. Not a huge deal, I just reran it. Very little to complain about.

Overall: I don't have to worry about database rights settings to backup different databases.

Pros: This program was the one I choose to purchase to do all my backing up. I will say the program is easy to use and I have it set to backup every night at 3 am. The nice feature about this program is you can still work (we occasionally do long nights) and it will run in the background. I am lucky to say I haven't had to use any of our backups yet. But, I do check and see they are on our server.

Cons: I haven't found many cons on this program. Maybe that it always asks you to upgrade to the next best thing. The new edition (for a cost of course). That does get a little annoying.

Pros: I liked the fact that the software was supposed to do bare metal backup, meaning you could restore it to a new machine. I got this software because it was recommended. I should have done more research.

Cons: The software has not worked at all. It has not made one single complete backup without error in the 6 months I have struggled with it. I am very sorry I purchased it. Also, I thought I would be able to back up to my own cloud, but it will only back up (if you can get it to work) to their cloud that you have pay extra for. Customer support responded at first, but now they are just ignoring me.

Overall: none

Cons: none so far.

Overall: a must tool for imaging servers and workstations. works now with windows 10 (not tried windows 2016 yet).

Recommendations to other buyers: so many flavors/versions with this software and they keep renaming it even with your existing subscriptions. initial cost is high but maintenance is not. customer support is the best. the ticket will not be closed until they fully provide a solution to it...

Comments: I was recommended to use Acronis by my computer specialist. This has been a great program for backing up both my laptop and my desktop. For me, it is a better solution than a backup harddrive (I had one of those, and it failed.). I would recommend Acronis to others who are looking for a better way to back up their info.

Software you should definitely check out

Comments: At the beginning Backup and Recovery required some effort to understand the program but now I am convinced that this is a great software if you have a large amount of computers to manage. The software can backup laptops and other storage devices without problems and the data is recovered after some minutes already. Where other applications take hours or days, Backup and Recovery finishes very quick. A useful feature is that the software allows you to compress your backups in order to optimize storage space.

Pros: The software recovers your data without any fail.

Cons: Quite complicated for data backup beginners.
