    Hello all,
    I would like a program
    to back up my computer in case of a hard drive failure or virus.
    I tried Acronis, but found their customer support lacking.
    I just downloaded Avanquest 12.
    The only problem is that according to tech support, you cannot view what has been backed up and I don't want any surprises down the road.
    Any one using this program and are you satisfied?
    Thanks for any advice.

    What did you find wrong with Acronis True Image? I've been using it for years, excellent backup utility.

    Thanks for your reply.
    I downloaded the Trial and it immediately disconnected my Internet.
    After speaking to Acronis, they told me to download a different link, but to uninstall the previous version first.
    After installing their Utility and running it , it would not work.
    I finally downloaded the Microsoft Utility and that took it off.
    The problem I found with Acronis, is the myriad of choices in the Backup program and not knowing if it is going to work when I truly need it.
    I am just looking for an easy program that will back up my computer and allow me to go back in time before a virus or completely restore in case of a crash.
    Thanks again for any advice.

    Gosh, I've always found Acronis True Image to be pretty easy to use, especially in the recent releases.

    Guess that's why they make chocolate and vanilla ice cream.[​IMG]
