Acronis vs XXclone

  Ray5776 19:11 31 Dec 2006

Can anyone tell me why Acronis is better than a simple HD clone.

I like Acronis because it can do scheduled, incremential backups.

There is no reason that it has to be better - maybe it is, maybe not. It does what I want and that's good enough for me.

Thanks for your reply Diodorus Sicolus and I see your point, I have Acronis but am not aware of how to do the scheduled incremental backups, this has to be an easier way than cloning.

On TI9, it's


scheduled task

and follow the wizard.

Mine runs nightly at 11.30 and PC shuts down at 12 midnight.

Happy New Year

The only thing I have found with incremental backups is the backup file size, it seemed to me when I tried it that the files were getting huge.
