I upgraded from Acronis True Image 10 Home to Acronis True Image Home 2012 a year or so ago and, to say the least, I am unimpressed. It was slower to make an image backup file (about twice as long) and I received several error messages when trying to backup and to verify the backup file.
I tried to uninstall Acronis True Image Home 2012 and reload Acronis True Image 10 Home, but was unable to reload Acronis True Image 10 Home.
I would be very careful about upgrading unless the new version provides something you really need. Have a look at the Acronis forum to see more comments and more in depth views.
I gave up on Acronis some years ago as each year I was pestered with upgrade invitations and to be honest the upgrades did not seem to be offering much I wanted. In fact I felt that Acronis was just becoming bloated with totally irrelevant functions
Since moving to an SSD I find it easier to clean install should I need to, everything personal is on other HDD's then back up both via DropBox and a NAS drive.
