Acronis true image 2017 new generation personal backup

It would be quite easy to lớn simply say that Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation is the best backup program; It’s the fasdemo all-around imaging program we’ve sầu tested, it’s dead reliable, & it sports every imaginable option.

Design và features

True Image 2017 has an attractive interface that’s relatively easy lớn use—once you’re familiar with it. It’s light years better than it was before a re-design several years ago, but there are still little oddities, such as thin scroll bars with light-colored sliders on a dark background (the exact opposite of the Windows standard) that require more cognitive sầu effort than they should.

It’s pretty, but don’t grab the dark portion of the slider—that’s the background. Little time-wasters lượt thích this appear throughout the interface.

Design oddities or no, True Image 2017 is a titung when it comes lớn features. In addition to lớn imaging your system, whole disks, partitions, & groups of files, there’s a boot-time startup recovery option và an optional hidden partition for images. There’s every conceivable backup option: incremental, differential, super flexible scheduling, pre/post operation commands, email notifications, just to lớn name a few. There’s also a one-way (mirroring) function for syncing a thư mục to lớn a destination, as well as client apps for your thiết bị di động devices to lớn keep those backed up.

Those are just the features in the Essential version, which costs $50. The $40-yearly Plus version offers 50GB of online storage as well as backup of your Facebook page, phone tư vấn, & updates. The $100-yearly Premium version ups that to 1TB of online storage plus Active sầu Protection, which checks images và the program itself to see if anything has been altered, lớn fkết thúc off ransomware. Those prices reflect that fact that the Plus & Premium versions are true subscription software—only the restore functions are available if you don’t re-up. $30 will buy you the local backup features in perpetuity.

Acronis Active sầu Protection is a hedge against ransomware, but it’s available only in the $100 Premium version.

The Premium version also features Asign (not a misspelling), which signs your backups for authentication and stores the record with Blockchain, an online service & repository for digital assets. (Note that blockchain, or bloông xã chains, also refers to the technology/methodology employed—the company simply uses the name.)

All True Image versions provide bootable recovery truyền thông media with the ability lớn restore to dissimilar hardware, i.e., not the same type of hardware that the backup was created on.

Be careful buying True Image. When Acronis says subscription, they mean it. A perpetual license is another $30.

Performance

We run a number of backups và restores with every program we review and True Image aced all of them. It completed our timed small 115GB Windows system backup in less than four minutes, faster than most of the other programs (though several seconds slower than Aomei’s Backupper Standard). But it was twice as fast as Backupper when handling our 48GB set of files và folders. CPU usage was quite heavy, about 75 percent, far greater than with most programs at their mặc định settings. Speed isn’t a real concern for most users who tover khổng lồ persize background or after-hours backups. But if you’re backing up a lot of stuff, or from a number of PCs, tốc độ is definitely an asphối, and one that True Image possesses in abundance.

On the other hvà, True Image’s speed & hefty feature mix come with a price: a whopping six processes running in the background by mặc định. While any performance hit will largely be unnoticeable in a relatively modern, multi-core system, loading them noticeably lengthened our boot times. There’s a lot of stuff in the system tray as well. We’d very much like the ability lớn configure True Image lớn use less resources & keep a lower protệp tin.
