What is Backup?

A full image backup is a complete second copy of all of the data stored on a device like your desktop, laptop, smartphone, or tablet. It captures everything from your emails and videos to your apps and preferences. By storing this second copy separately from the original, everything on your device that matters to you is safe and accessible in the event of an accidental deletion, system crash, or malware attack.

  1. World Backup DayPersonal and professional data The files on your computers and smartphones need protection to withstand data loss events. Backups allow you to easily recover what matters to you - whether that's individual family photos and videos, or important business presentations.
  2. World Backup DayApplications To access and modify your data, you run applications such as Office 365, Skype, Photoshop, etc. on your devices. Backing up these applications ensures that you can restore them and pick up where you left off, regardless of what caused your data loss event.
  4. World Backup DayOperating system (OS) Whether your device relies on Windows, macOS, iOS, or Android, it is the operating system that is running your machine. Without it, your device is a brick. Keeping an updated backup of your OS means you can reinstall it with all of your preferences intact.

Why everyone needs protection

At work and at home, your devices store irreplaceable information. Unfortunately, it’s very easy – and very costly – to lose this data.

Five Steps to Back up

  • 1Know what matters To protect what matters, you need to know what matters. If you performed a full image backup recently you may only need to create a backup of the changes made since then.

    Acronis makes this easy, allowing you to choose anything from a specific file to an entire system to be backed up. You can also schedule incremental backups that automatically capture recent changes to your files.
  • 2Choose a destination Your backup needs to be securely stored somewhere so you can access it later, whether it’s on a USB, an external hard drive, a NAS, or in the cloud. With Acronis, this choice is as simple as selecting your preferred storage destination and clicking ‘Back up now’.
  • 3Safety’s as easy as 3, 2, 1 Having a backup is important, but what if your backup file gets lost or damaged? For the most comprehensive protection, maintain multiple backups stored in multiple locations.

    Ideally three backup copies, stored in two separate formats, with at least one isolated from the original and local backup files. Cloud storage offers a convenient off-site option.
  • 4Automate and relax Regularly backing up your devices is important, but it’s probably not at the top of your to-do list. That’s ok! Acronis solutions allow you to schedule automatic backups of any data to any destination so you can be confident that your most important information is protected at all times.
  • 5Confirm you’re covered Mistakes happen, but backup validation can help prevent them. If an error occurs during the backup process or if the backed up data was incomplete or corrupt, your recovery won’t be reliable.

    Acronis allows for backup verification to confirm that your backup files are safe, secure, and ready to run as soon as you need them.
