Acronis True Image Help

Acronis True Image is a very easy software to install and use, but with more than 5 million users, we get an occasional request from new buyers to help them install and set up their first backup.

Secure Bakcup

As we already reported, a new ransomware outbreak occurred in Europe on October 24.

How to free up space on smartphone

Remember “The Best Camera Is The One That's With You” from a visionary photographer Chase Jarvis? In this beautiful photographic journal covering a year in his life, Jarvis underscores the idea that an inspiring moment can be captured by any camera, even a mobile phone.

This trend is in full swing. More than a third of the world’s population now own a smartphone, which means 2.2 billion people will be capturing their inspiring moments with a mobile phone this year. In fact, market research firm InfoTrends says that 85 percent of the 1.2 trillion new photos projected for 2017 will be taken on smartphones.

This week, many of those images will be capturing the excitement of the United States Formula 1 Grand Prix in Austin, Texas. If the turnout is similar to 2016, more than 250 thousand people will bring their smartphones to the Circuit of the Americas this weekend, looking for a perfect shot of their favorite driver, team car, or attending celebrity.

Mobile Backup to NAS

Most people want data protection to be as simple as possible: either so easy that it becomes an instinctive habit or, even better, completely automated so you don’t have to think about it at all.

When it comes to backing up the data on your family’s smartphones and tablets, Acronis True Image 2018 has you covered. In fact, we’ve made mobile backup so easy that all you have to do is come home and you’ll automatically back up via Wi-Fi to your PC, Mac and now NAS.

So here’s a look at why is Acronis investing time and money to create a cutting-edge ransomware protection technology and how our AI and machine learning solution fights this ever-growing digital threat.
