But the big feature that interested me is it claims to be able to do snapshot-consistent backups of Parallels Desktop v.11 images. In fact, Parallels also advertises this and even has a button from within PD to launch ATI. However, THIS DOES NOT WORK -- ATI 2016 cannot create PD11 snapshots. Acronis support acknowledges this problem and claims it will be fixed in a future update (while Parallels confirms it's an ATI problem), but both ATI 2016 and PD11 have been out for months now, no ETA on any such fix.
Acronis' suggested workaround? Downgrade to PD10. Hahaha, downgrade one of the main apps I use all day long to work around a bug in backup software? No. Since PD backup is the only unique feature and the only reason I can see to choose ATI for Mac, I'm not. If they ever fix this showstopper bug, I'll definitely be happy to try it again.
