Acronis True Image

Acronis True Image

Acronis True Image

I have this program on a USB. When I boot up the surface to load Acronis True Image it won't load. Has anyone had success booting to Acronis True Image from a Microsoft Surface running Win 10?

RE: Acronis True Image

how old is the version of true image?

RE: Acronis True Image

Seems to say newer versions of Acronis will work with right version of PE on the bootable media.
So, yeah - what version are you attempting it with?

I use Macrium (not on a Surface Pro) and they were strongly suggesting using the Windows 10 based PE recovery media even to restore Windows 7 due to better USB3 support, etc.

Do you get any error?

RE: Acronis True Image

We have Acronis True Image 2015 (No longer supported). Also, I have never heard of Macrium.

RE: Acronis True Image

Macrium is to Acronis as Coke is to Pepsi - same thing, backup and imaging program. I happen to like Acronis better and have used both.

Do you have the correct build of Acronis 2015 per this document that will support Windows 10? If not, that's probably the issue.

RE: Acronis True Image

I've used Acronis for years, and it has saved my bacon on more than one occasion. I have found, though, that I have to religiously download any patches/updates they offer...and each time I need to build another Acronis boot disk. Nothing is perfect, or guaranteed, but FWIW I'm an Acronis fanboy.
