I have a small business and as one of my many jobs is computer administrator. I have other job tasks besides computing that I must tend to on the day to day basis and without Acronis these last few years I would have not been able to perform these efficiently. The ease of use of this program has freed up a lot of time to accomplish more important matters. I have always run full manual backups when it was convenient for me or my employee and then copy the image to an external hard drive and take it off premises. I have never one time on any computer set an automated back up. I turn off my computer every night before I go home and for some reason 3 or 4 months ago every Friday morning when I turn my computer on it times out and freezes and I get the message "True Image Scheduler Service has Stopped" after 10-15 minutes goes by the message disappears and it unfreezes and everything is fine. For some reason it happens every Friday morning. I have upgraded from version 12 to 13, installed uninstalled countless times, spent hours with Acronis support and let them get into my computer and install and uninstall things with no success. Its almost like something is scheduled and it missed it because my computer was turned off so its trying to run but nothing is scheduled and never has been. I am not sure if it is windows 7 or Acronis and was curious if anyone else has ever had this issue.
