Acronis Marketing Director Stephen Lawton Guests on Let's Talk Computers Nov. 26, 2005

Acronis Disk Director Suite; Storage Management Highlights Radio Show

November 22, 2005, South San Francisco, CA — Acronis, Inc., the technological leader in storage management software, announced that marketing director Stephen Lawton will discuss Acronis Disk Director Suite on the Let's Talk Computers® show on Saturday, Nov. 26, 2005. Let's Talk Computers ranks as one of the longest running radio computer talk shows, distributing up-to-the minute computer information since 1989.

Host Alan Ashendorf interviewed Lawton about trends in storage and disk management, multibooting and how users can get the most from the PCs they'll be buying this holiday season. Also scheduled to guest on the same episode is Lane Sorgen, a Microsoft vice who will discuss Microsoft's Small Business Accounting software.

"Let's Talk Computers makes every effort to evaluate the products and services it showcases in real-world situations by applying solutions to real-life problems," said co-host Alan Ashendorf. "We use the expertise and facilities of Total Solutions, Inc. to assist in that regard. This helps to insure that, unlike many other so-called reviewers, we have actually used the products that we talk about."

"With Acronis Disk Director Suite 10.0, users no longer have to choose between having a system configured the way they want it or having a technician do the task," said Stephen Lawton, Acronis director of marketing. "User-friendly wizards and powerful step-by-step operations mean that any user can repartition and manipulate monster hard disks or run multiple operating systems —even multiple versions of Windows.

"Having an easy to use product to create separate partitions for the operating system, applications and user specific data significantly improves performance, manageability and recoverability of data and systems," he added. "This makes Acronis Disk Director the ideal companion tool for our award-winning Acronis True Image for servers and workstations. Using the combination of both products IT managers now can create a backup image of the system partition and then regularly backup user data on a file or partition level providing significant time and storage space savings."

Produced in Nashville, TN, Let's Talk Computers is broadcast via radio in Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, Illinois, Indiana, Texas and New Mexico and on the World Wide Web via the Internet. For more information on the program, visit http://lets-talk-computers.com/.
