Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does a system image back up everything on your computer?

    A full image backup – also known as a mirror backup – is an exact replica of everything on your computer's hard drive. This includes your files, the operating system, boot information, apps, and hidden files, as well as the preferences and setting changes you’ve made. Instead of simply copying individual files you might want to protect, a full image backup includes everything you need to restore your system.

  • How long does it take to create a system image backup?

    While the amount of data can affect the speed of creating a mirror image, by using an external drive and Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office (formerly Acronis True Image), you can usually create an initial disk image in under 90 minutes. After that updates to that image can be made in a matter of minutes. Imaging software like Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office lets you schedule frequent full image backups, which ensures any new data or changes to your system are captured on a regular basis.

  • How to make system image backup?

    With Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office (formerly Acronis True Image), creating a full image backup is a two-click process. After launching Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office, select Create a backup. Your entire computer system will be the Backup source by default, so all you need to do is assign the Backup destination, including local storage (internal drive, external hard drive, network drives and NAS devices) or secure cloud storage. Once the destination is set, simply click Start backup.

  • Is Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office mirror imaging software?

    Yes, but it also enables you to do so much more than traditional imaging software. Not only can you create a full mirror image of your disk, Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office (formerly Acronis True Image) allows you to back up individual files, folders and partitions, clone a system disk while it is in use (no rebooting needed), and you can archive files to the cloud to open space on your hard drive. It will also back up your Microsoft 365 data, as well as an unlimited number of mobile devices.
