Acronis True Image 2021 is the latest version of the popular backup tool.
The program provides simple ways to back up your entire PC, specific disks or partitions, or individual files and folders. Backups can be saved locally or to the cloud, while a Sync feature ensures key files are always available on any device, wherever you are.
A backup analysis and statistics module enables you to easily see a representation of what's taking up the most space in your backup (much like Apple offers with iCloud backups).
Acronis True Image includes anti-ransomware protection. We're assuming that this is included so your backups are always protected from being encrypted by ransomware, so if your computer gets infected, then your backups remain safe. This will then enable you to quickly restore a previous backup, rather than worry about paying a ransom fee.
The Conversion to Virtual Machine option enables you to take an existing backup and convert it to a virtual machine. This could be immensely useful if you backed up your entire desktop computer, needed access to the contents of your laptop when you were on the road. Simply convert to a virtual machine and run within VMware Workstation.
This Premium addition adds additional security to protection your files, such as signing each with your own unique electronic signatures. Premium also allows you to add up to 5TB of cloud storage (in total and at an extra expense).
With the version on this page, you also get 1TB of Acronis Cloud storage. This enables you to backup your entire system or your most important files and folders, to the cloud, for easy recovery at a later date.
Suitable for either a PC or Mac.
Includes 1-Device, 1-Year subscription, 1TB cloud storage.
