Paragon Home Backup and Recovery Free is a great replacement.

I'm downloading it now, but how is it better than Acronis and why switch?  I've tried some before and they didn't always work.  Thanks for the info.

Well its FREE for starters like Avast. It is also a million times less bloated. I tried Acronis 2010/2011. They run about 5 processes and 3 of them are services. No need for that. I back up when I want to. Plug my external HDD in and launch Paragon. When its done close it out.

I use it too. IT's light, it works perfectly, it's rather quick and when you close the program, it's closed...  ;D

+1................Aconris is very bloated and a big culprit when it comes to system slow downs.

I got rid of Acronis and switched to Macrium Reflect Free and its only 31.4MB vs 98.1MB for Backup & Recovery 2011 (Advanced) Free

I tried Backup & Recovery 2011 (Advanced) Free and it wants Registration information so that they can spam me. ::)

I've tried Acronis long ago. A very restrictive upgrade model: you need to pay for everything. Not for me.
It became a bloatware full of services and processes running.
I've moved to free Macrium.
The best things in life are free.

It says on that page also: "If you don’t like our messages, you’ll be able to remove your address from the subscribers list at any time."
and this is an opt-in option. If you don't mark it, you won't get messages.
I don't get any, and the product is great.

in settings, you have the option to tell avast to load its components only after the system has finished to boot.

The size of the program doesn't matter. How effective it is does. I have successfully mounted at least 10 images with Paragon. I use the bootable cd and within an hour I'm all set. Why worry about the size of the program. What do you have a 20GB HDD.

If your using Windows 7 why not use the built in backup. It does an excellent job
and it's already on your system.  :)

Exactly. Why not use both. I do. Windows backup is known not to replace all files.
