Started thinking other day birthday is coming, and panicked a little in regards to Windows 11 24H2, and removed Macrium Reflect Home Edition 8.1, to try Acronis CyberProtect prior to RL birthday on February 21st, my thinking was if i have a current subscription for a Backup software, i'd obtain the patches in the future to make it fully 24H2 compatible.

Well So far not sure on Acronis, doesn't even recognize my trusty usb flash drive i used for Macrium for a long time on my Windows 11 Pro Desktop.

In Acronis Rescue Media Builder
Shows ISO File
WIM File
or Plug in your external drive (Well flash drive is already plugged in lol--surely not as simply as Macrium i'm realizing lol, this particular flash drive always worked in Macrium)


Should i try to save money to just obtain a Macrium Subscription in the future? and Forget Spending on Acronis sub on February 21st? and Reinstall Macrium and Redo my system backups?

You're clearly looking for opinions, not concrete solutions for a problem. In that spirit, my opinions on those three questions are yes, yes, and yes, respectively.

Well i'd take a solution for the problem as well lol...I've searched so far over an hour, even reformatted the flash drive with a full format, and still same window in Acronis CyberProtect with last item being Plug in your External drive


Yet this flash drive has always been my recovery usb for Macrium for years, not a single problem

But might for birthday just do a system clean up with removal of that Trial lol, and Reinstall Macrium Reflect Home Edition 8.1

Macrium recovery drives and Acronis recovery drives are not interchangeable. If you build an Acronis recovery drive, you'll find that Macrium doesn't work with that one, either. Use the MR recovery drive to boot into the MR restoration program. Use the ACP recovery drive to boot into the ACP recovery environment.

    Still assembled, still runs. Haven't turned it on for 13 years?
I had a bad experience with the "Acronis" program when I installed it on my computer before I switched to Macrium Reflect, So I find the switch from Macrium Reflect to Acronis CyberProtect a bit strange 🤨

The Acronis program is very bloated to the point of slowing down your device, no matter how good its specifications are, and I remember when I installed it for the first time how I immediately felt the system slow down

I am happy now with Macrium Reflect after purchasing it, but perhaps in the future if it switches to a lease system with the current price, I will try to look for an alternative, but the alternative will certainly not be Acronis :-)

Well a Tech Youtuber i watched stated he likes Acronis on a video recently, so i decided well ok i'll give it a try with the Trial, and well so far is it not as easy as Macrium i'm finding out

I also received a lot of good advice about Acronis before I came here and posted my first post after confirming that the program was not as described to me :(

Maybe people still recommend it because it was good in the past but not now

In Regards to Uninstalling Acronis CyberProtect Trial, is Windows Add/Remove Enough or should i use Revo Uninstaller to make sure its all gone?

((Finally got the Rescue USB to Work LOL--suddenly it seen the Freshly Formatted Flash drive lol when didn't earlier)) But think will still end up uninstalling, and sticking with Macrium Reflect Home Edition 8.1 after all

If you already have a Reflect v8 Home licence, then you don't need to worry about what 24H2 may bring in the future. Reflect Home will get every v8.n.nnnn update no matter how long ago you made the one-time purchase. In addition v8 would continue to be supported with updates for one year after a next version v9 is launched (not that there's an sign of that any time soon).

    fully 'Windows 11 ready' laptop. Windows 10 C: partition migrated from my old unsupported 'main machine' then upgraded to 11. A test migration ran Insider builds for 2 months. When 11 was released on 5th October it was re-imaged back to 10 and was offered the upgrade in Windows Update on 20th October. Windows Update offered the 22H2 Feature Update on 20th September 2022. It got the 23H2 Feature Update on 4th November 2023 through Windows Update.

Started thinking other day birthday is coming, and panicked a little in regards to Windows 11 24H2, and removed Macrium Reflect Home Edition 8.1, to try Acronis CyberProtect prior to RL birthday on February 21st, my thinking was if i have a current subscription for a Backup software, i'd obtain the patches in the future to make it fully 24H2 compatible.
....
Like everything in life it depends on what you're looking to do, and how you wish to do.

I don't create images as I never using them within the day they were created. Outside of that, if need, I do a fresh clean install, and use Acronis to restore my backed-up data. Here Acronis has never fails.

In fact, I just did a Win 11 OS reinstall two days ago, and once the OS was installed, in installed Acronis, pointed it to my backup, and restored the files without fuss or issue. This is with Acronis CyberProtect (formally ATI, which I've been using for over 20+ years).

That said, for me, if it was "strictly" about "images" - Macrium. But strictly backups.... Acronis.

I've since Uninstalled Acronis CyberProtect and reinstalled Macrium Reflect Home Edition.

Decided Acronis wasn't as easy to use as Marium, didn't see Rescue usb for hours, til I reopened it later on and magically worked then. Sfc scannow shows fine, so looks like Acronis Uninstaller fine

Use Autoruns to check whether any Acronis stuff is left behind
