I used the clone method to install my SSD and it worked perfectly.
I'm using Acronis 2010 with Win 7 x64.

|WhiteFireDragon||I would buy if it was from amazon or newegg, but the fact that this is only free after rebate from TD is enough to make me stay away. Most rebates that are directly from TD, I have NOT gotten.|

Thanks for the suggestion. Just wondering, did you start a new application from scratch or did you resume the one that you had initially created ?

But I also bought the Acronis True Image Home 2012.
At this point, I'm not sure which one I'll depend upon:
I guess anything is better than my present backup routine (no backups at all).

Did anyone try creating the rebate ? I used the link on the form, enter the rebate information clicked save and continue.
On the next screen, where i select the date from the calender menu option, im selecting today Sept-11-2012 and then entering my order number. When i click continue, it gives me an error..
It says invalid date as error code.. not sure why..

These imaging software solutions all seem to have issues that are probably directly related to the system it is running on. I have been using Acronis since version 6 for my business. I have had zero issues restoring images to new systems for Windows 2000, XP and 7. I have been using 2010 for awhile now and I have had no reason to update since it works.
However, I use the same software on my Win 7 desktop at home and I do have two problems. The image is scheduled to keep an update going.
1) I create a new image once a week for my personal system, but sometimes, the update fails due to some error about corruption of the current image. I delete the image and create a new one. I have some of my customers set up with a daily scheduled image and after years, still no problems.
2) The files in the image are 100% good. I can go into the image and extract anything I need, so as far as backing up, I'm good. The problem is, I cannot restore the image to a new drive. As someone else here has already mentioned, I am also having the problem where it tells me the image is not valid when I attempt to restore. But on my business machines, it has worked 100%.
So when I see someone say it's user error, in all likelihood, it's not user error, but something on their system causing the problem. I have been restoring images for years without problems for my business needs, but cannot do the same thing on my own personal computer.
Acronis claims that 2010 is not supported for Windows 7, so I ordered this 2012 to test on my desktop. Regardless of what Acronis support claims, 2010 does work with my Win 7 business machines.
My suggestion to anyone on the fence is, when it goes FAR, grab a copy and test it. If it doesn't work on your system, look for another solution. If it does work, you have a great piece of software for backing your system up.

"Imaging software thread flame" - never thought I'd see it, much less be a part of making the history. Thanks for this. But now it's time to release this thread - and hey, if it comes back to you then you know its forever...

Since I would never trust Windows backup anyway and have never used it, I looked up your error. I would need to replicate the error . Here's a link for how someone resolved the problem. Seriously though, I was being cheeky, I don't really care or have any feelings towards what you do with what software.

Also, this is a free alternative (FAR). I would also assume that if you are cloning/backing up your drive that you are experiencing no Windows issues. Otherwise, why would you backup an installation with errors, viruses, and/or bloat?
