All CPU cores running 75 to 95% and fans always running
I am using a MacBook Pro 2.8GHz running El Capitan 10.11.5. On my PC I have been using Acronis True Image for years as my backup software. It has only gotten better over the years. That is why I jumped at the opportunity to run the Mac version. That was a huge error on my part.
I just returned from an Apple Genius Bar appointment not being able to use my Mac for almost a week. All 4 cores were running between 85 to 95% all the time the minute I started my Mac. I made the appointment thinking my CPU was faulty but after Apple analyzed the trouble they said it was Acronis that was causing my trouble. Returning home I started my computer and the cores all started as if they were under a high load and the fans started running even though my computer was cold. As fast as I could I deleted Acronis all cores and fans dropped immediately dropped to normal.
I’m pretty mad that Acronis would release a program so flawed and not ready for prime time. I have contacted Acronis about my problem but so far have not received a reply.
