Acronis True Image is a backup solution developed for image based backups as well as cloning and recovery. The program is supported on both Windows and Mac computers as well as Android and iOS devices.
The key difference between file backups and image-based backups is how the process works. Image based backups create a snapshot of your entire computer’s hard disk into a single archivable file. In the event of a failed disk this enables you to replace the physical hardware and then recover from the latest image. This results in drastically less downtime as the OS, installed applications, files, and settings are all recovered. Acronis also allows you to recover individual files from an image backup.
Acronis True Image is capable of cloning one hard disk to another. This is a perfect solution for upgrading a computer from a standard hard drive to a SSD.
The most recent iteration of True Image also features mobile device backup that can back up your data and pictures to the cloud or wireless to a local computer on the network. The software is a one-time purchase with an optional cloud storage option available on a subscription bases.
