    Restore System with Acronis True Image 2014


    Hi, I just updated to Windows 10 and I am loving it! I want to create a system image using a Acronis True Image 2014 bootable CD. I created a backup using the CD just fine and it includes the MBR the C: drive. When i try to restore the image, Windows 10 will boot but when i get to the desktop, it does not load properly and the screen flashes. I have re-installed since, but i want to create a backup for ease of use. Does anyone know how to restore an image properly? I blame the program, since it was working fine before.

    I'm using Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2012 (the previous version) and have had no problems backing up and restoring my Win 10 system image.

    Thanks will give Acronis 2015 a try next week! Still would like to try and find a solution for Acronis 2014.

    The free version of Macrium Reflect is working nicely for me in W10. I was a long time Acronis user but I'm quite happy with Macrium.

    I'm sick of having to always buy a new version of Acronis when I change OSes. Time to dump them and move to Macrium or AOMEI or Paragon.

    I have 2014 and it loks like my backup I just created will be useless.

    Thanks all for this info.
