Full image back up

Create an exact replica of an entire disk or a selected partition to enable fast recovery or migration to another computer.

“It's not if your computer will crash, but when—and I learned that the hard way when my hard drive crashed and my backup solution at the time, Carbonite, failed to backup all of my files. Soon after, I switched to Acronis, and it’s saved not only my computer, but my wife’s as well.” Robert T.

"Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation was the only backup solution in the test that was able to stop ransomware attacks."

"Acronis True Image is the only program recognized by the AV-TEST Institute with the certificate Approved Backup & Data Security Software"

"Every performance test was led by Acronis, which is on average twice as fast, in some cases being 10 times as fast as the competition."

File and Folder backup

Back up selected files and folders rather than a full image backup for those times when you don’t want to back up everything.

Powerful recovery options

Recover everything. Recover a file or a folder. Recover mobile device content. View backup hierarchies and files securely from anywhere via a web browser.

No interruption back up

Backup operations are performed in the background with your system running. They don’t affect performance so you can work during back up.

“I needed a backup software for my wife’s computer, one that wouldn’t interrupt her while working, and Acronis fit this requirement. Installation was a breeze, and I was able to easily set up weekly cloud backups.” Les K.

Try and Decide

Safely experiment with new software, drivers, system updates, and more with a restore point that will reset your computer to exactly how it was before you made the change. Learn more about Try and Decide feature.

Multiple backup plans

Schedule as many different backup plans as needed. Schedule full backups on a daily or weekly basis, while backing up certain folders more frequently — or even continuously. Configure backups to multiple destinations for better protection. You can even manage backup plans remotely.

Flexible backup schemes

Create a complete backup every time. Or use version chain, incremental, differential or custom schemes based on your requirements for speed and storage.

Bootable media / Universal Restore

Recover disk image backups to any hardware. Ensure the backup can be recovered using Acronis driver injection technology that enables you to start up a system on a new computer. Resize and reorder partitions during recovery if necessary.

End-to-end encryption & Password

Ensure your privacy with military-grade AES-256 encryption. Data can be encrypted on site, in-transit, and in the cloud. And regardless of platform, encryption is available.

Incremental Social Backup and Recovery

Don’t let accidental deletion or social network errors erase your memories and photos. Automatically back up Facebook.

  • Back up only changes to your feed, not the whole feed each time, to reduce backup size.
  • Works in the background without user intervention.
  • Have complete control of your images without needing to rely on native social media tools.
  • Browse Facebook backups or recover them to the same or alternate Facebook account for which you have credentials.

Fast, powerful search

Search for files within local and cloud backups, archives. Make sure you are recovering from the correct backup to save time. Or recover one file — the correct one — instead of having to recover an entire backup and then search.

I chose Acronis after reading many positive articles, and it came to my rescue when a colleague’s computer crashed. It saved my life that day, and continues to do so. Bob B.
