My husband has a HP Pavillion Laptop with Win 7. He recently downloaded Acronis backup software, but despite several installs/uninstalls/installs, cannot get it to function. Every time he tries to run it he gets a runtime error.

He is trying to backup onto a 350GB USB HD, but with no success.

There is no way to get any technical help from Acronis, so he has basically given up on it. Is there anything he can do to get it to work? Or should he be looking at another backup system/program?

Thanks for any advice,

Hi SubMariner

Acronis is not bad but it isn't the only one doing a good job either.
There are plenty of powerful Backup applications out-there and a quick search reveals this

Hope it helps

Thanks for the feedback; I'll pass it along to him.

Anyone else want to chime in on this?

I still like Cobian Backup 10 a multi-threaded program that can be used to schedule and backup your files and directories from their original location to other directories/drives in the same computer or other computer in your network. Free.

For Windows XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, Windows 7
(works in both 32 and 64 bits Windows)


What's new in Cobian Backup?

This is an older version Tutoria; but still helpful.
