Testimonials and User Comments
Just want to left you a note of a very satisfied customer. A few years ago I bought a copy of Powerquests DriveImage version 5. Later on I upgraded it to version 6 (version 2002). That last version worked quite well up until I installed my brand new 200 Gb harddisk. It then appeared that the Caldera DOS version DriveImage was using to boot into, got into troubles. I even considered updating to version 7 (as that version images a drive without leaving Windows I guessed it would work) until I read some newsgroups. Not so many people were satisfied... In one of the reviews I found on the net, your name was mentioned and I am glad I followed the link.
Since your full product price was equal to the upgrade price of DriveImage 7 I thought... what the heck. And after just one evening playing around with Acronis True Image I must say I love it. Everybody is complaining about Microsoft, but actually almost all of their products feel "mature", not so many others do. I have just a few of them... and since tonight Acronis True Image is one of them. The way it handles the "Secure zone" is just fabulous. Booting into it works like a charm and mounting an image from it is peanuts!
I hope you will continue to develop this great product... with Symantec taking over Powerquest you already lost one competitor (I guess they will have to make a choice between DriveImage and Ghost) and you are on your way to leave the remaining one behind as well (I hope ;-)).
