Using Acronis as an example when on this forum may not be a good plan. Many of us are former Acronis users who left that product because it was almost always buggy, there was little or no interaction with the company, and they were slow to fix significant issues. Some of those issues were caused by adding new features that were poorly implemented and tested.
We prefer a company that provides a reliable product, reacts quickly to issues and has access to developers in situations were a user has a problem with the product.
I mentioned workarounds because I thought you might be looking for a way to accomplish the feature you requested using today's product. After spending a lot of time providing significant speed improvements I would not expect Macrium to add something that might slow down the backup. Storage is relatively cheap these days so one can get a 4 TB external drive for around $100. If it is important to you to reduce file size, Files & Folder backup allows surgical precision. If you want speed, image backup can do that. I cannot speak for Macrium, but trying to do both may not be worth the time and money. Of course that depends on how many people think that feature is important.
