New Acronis True Image Home 2010 offers Online Backup and continuous data protection

Solution provides insurance for Windows 7 migration

September 15 2009 — Acronis is today launching Acronis True Image Home 2010, the latest version of its consumer backup and recovery software. Featuring its patented disk imaging technology, it now protects home computers with round the clock full-system protection, compatibility with Windows 7, and an online backup option.

Acronis True Image Home 2010 is an essential safety net for users before they migrate to Microsoft Windows 7 operating system. Taking a full backup image with Acronis True Image Home 2010 prior to moving to Windows 7 provides the ability to quickly and easily recover the entire PC, including the operating system, applications, updates and files, if a roll back is necessary. In addition, it allows users to easily retrieve data by accessing the Acronis image via Microsoft Windows Explorer. Users can also create a virtual machine from the backup image and run the original Windows operating environment within Windows 7 using software from Microsoft, VMware Inc., or Parallels.

The new Acronis Nonstop Backup feature offers users total system and data protection through automatic, incremental backups, allowing complete roll back to any point in time. Users can have complete confidence that their entire computer – photos, music, email, and family data as well as operating system, applications, and settings – are protected around the clock. Acronis True Image Home 2010 combines award-winning disk imaging and bare metal restore technology to allow a user to quickly recover from a virus outbreak, unstable software downloads, or failed hard drives.

By enhancing Acronis True Image Home 2010 with the option of backing up files and folders over the Internet to a secure location, Acronis protects users with a single application to manage all backup and recovery tasks, from creating full images of hard drives to saving specific files and folders online. It is a complementary, automatic, simple, and safe way to back up all important files. The data is secure, saved to a remote location for safekeeping and retrieval.

“People are increasingly storing files, photos, music and valuable personal information including legal and financial data on their home PCs and laptops, which require adequate protection,” says Laurent Dedenis, Executive Vice President EMEA at Acronis. “With Acronis True Image Home 2010 in place, users can have assurance that their computer is fully protected. Between disk imaging, file backup, local or online backup, and non-stop backup protection, Acronis True Image Home 2010 sets the standard for consumer PC disaster recovery in an affordable and easy-to-use solution.”
