Acronis True Image is a feature-packed software solution that can save valuable user data while providing him with comprehensive backup and restore functions. However, its feature list goes well beyond this, as it can be used to create drive and disk images and restore them when you need a clean system.
Restoration of the data can be done even if Windows becomes unbootable because the suite allows a user to create a bootable rescue media (CD/DVD or USB storage device). Furthermore, the Startup and Recovery Manager is capable of starting Acronis before loading the operating system by overwriting the master boot record and making available the option to boot straight into the program.
Try & Decide feature extends the functionality of the package, allowing a user to make changes to the system and discard them at system restart if they are affecting the system negatively. However, it also offers the possibility to apply all modifications. All backup files created with Acronis True Image can be mounted as virtual drives. This way, the user can check the contents and even copy data without having to restore the entire copy.
The suite includes all regular forms of backup (full, incremental, and differential) for helping a user save data on its computer or Acronis Cloud and carry out sync operations across all its devices. Furthermore, a user is allowed to split, validate and encrypt backups, create an exact copy of its whole partition, insert comments, shut down the computer at the end of the task, run a backup as a different Windows user, adjust the compression level, send email notifications, and create exclusion lists.
Apart from the robust backup features it offers, Acronis puts at user disposal a suite of instruments designed to help him keep the disks clean of unnecessary data. As such, System Clean-up utility can search for Windows activity traces (temporary files and history lists) and eliminate them.
Moreover, the bundle incorporates the possibility to sanitize hard disk space by running a set of overwriting routines that prevent the recovery of any deleted items. Secure deletion is also on the list, Acronis offering an ample pack of efficient destruction algorithms (Peter Gutmann, Bruce Schneier, Russian and German standards, etc.).
Users running Windows 7 Ultimate or Enterprise can combine Acronis’ conversion capabilities with Boot Sequence Manager utility to turn system backup copies into VHD images and boot from them. Plus, a user may design a secure partition for storing backups on your disk. The tool lets users import/export backup settings from/to ZIP files and converts an Acronis backup to a Windows one or vice versa.
Acronis True Image proves to be one of the best software solutions that the user can rely on when it comes to backup and recovery options. It provides a user-friendly interface and a robust feature pack for helping him save data locally or online.
