A full featured backup solution, By Acronis International GmbH (Commercial Trial)
+ Back up locally and to the cloud
+ Supports drive cloning
+ Anti-ransomware protection
– Increases boot time
Acronis True Image is a full featured backup solution that promises to “never lose another file.”
This backup software simultaneously sends data to both a local drive, and a cloud solution. It can also do cloning and mirror imaging duties for your rig’s system drive, in just two easy clicks.
Acronis True Image has an anti-ransomware feature that detects, and can even reverse the unauthorized encryption of a hard drive to keep data safe from this increasingly prevalent type of attack. It also offers support for mobile device backup. The downside is that all this backing up does use some system resources, and can even lengthen boot times.
A license for a single device goes for a one-time purchase of $49.99 (around £36, AU$66), but does not include any cloud storage space. An ongoing subscription to the advanced tier that includes 250GB of cloud storage costs $4.16 per month (£3, AU$5), and also upgrades the software to the latest version automatically.
Acronis True Image 2019 is a new, multi-platform edition of the trusted backup tool. The application can work with both local and cloud storage, and can be configured to backup your whole disk or just single files or folders. It brings faster disk imaging technologies, supports data migration and the ability to backup virtual machines.
Key features include:
- Full system image backup.
- Cloud backup to a secure online location.
- Easy and fast recovery.
- Personal key encryption technology that protects your backups.
- Data migration (PC).
- Parallels compatibility and virtual machine backup.
- Smart scheduling.
- Ease of use.
- Advanced backup modes.
- Support of most storage media.
- Full system restore from the cloud.
- Certified for Windows XP, 7, 8, and 10.
