Our Verdict

Still the most powerful and feature-rich imaging/backup program on the market, Acronis True Image năm trước is far friendlier than it used khổng lồ be.

You might think Windows has you covered with its own imaging/system backup, but there’s still a need for programs such as Acronis True Image. Windows’ built-in utility is extremely limited & reacts badly to lớn new hardware. True Image handles bare-metal restore và diverse hardware without hiccup. Owners of recent versions of True Image probably won’t find anything particularly compelling about this latest rendition, as only the online service is really new, but the new interface is a breeze to lớn use. It also takes Acronis Backup to lớn the cloud for the first time.

The interface is clean, efficient, & simple. You can perform a backup without answering a confusing stream of questions.

They’re simply hidden away in a very cleanly organized dialog.

True Image năm trước can perform file và image backups, one-off backups, multiple tracked backups, incremental, differential, scheduling, notifications, and more.

In keeping with modern times, there’s an online backup option in Acronis’s own Acronis Cloud. You get one year of 5GB (enough only for data, not system backups) for miễn phí with the program, but after a year, or for more storage, it’ll cost $10 per year for 5GB, $30 a year for 50GB, $40 for 125GB, & $50 for 125GB. That’s highly competitive pricing.

Every imaging or backup program should feature the ability to create disaster recovery boot media—ideally, both CD (for older systems), & USB flash drive. The ponderousness of TI’s older boot media forced me to lớn abandon previous versions of the program, as it wasn’t good for older, memory-challenged PCs. R-Drive Image is better for those. True Image 2014’s rescue disc still requires 512MB of system memory,and the new interface isn’t implemented,making it less friendly that the Windows UI. However, Acronis provides the means for adding it to lớn a Windows PE boot disc, though it’s not as simple a process as it should be.

Though they aren’t available until you ask, True Image’s options are advanced & myriad.

If If If Ifyou’re more than a version or two back on True Image, the 2014 version is well worth a look.you’re new to lớn backup products, simply know that it really doesn’t get any better than Acronis True Image for the average user, though I recommend R-Drive Image for pros.
