was on Acronis True Image. For some reason when I went to switch my PC on this morning, Windows wouldnt load - it just went to a plain black screen. This was somewhat annoying as I have all my business details and accounts on there.
Anyway, after pressing F11 to bring up Acronis rescue, and restoring the partition to the latest backup, it was up and running again within 5 minutes, with no files lost. So to anyone without a backup routine, I can highly recommend Acronis true image.
I've used the free version, and still do. I restored my pc about a month ago. As you say, in about 5 mins, you have a working pc again. Acronis does exactly what it says it does, quickly and easily too!
