More Information about Acronis True Image
Apart from Ransomware protection, the standard version of the software offers a backup data option. The software helps the user backup the data or entire OS on the external hard drive using image files. The backup also includes user’s mobile device, as well as file sharing among devices, making all data accessible from multiple devices. The time span for backing up data is very short, thus the user can continue using a computer without being aware of the process. The time it takes Acronis to backup 100MB is 50 seconds, and the entire computer can be cloned in 15 minutes. The Advanced 1-year subscription version offers 250GB of Cloud Space as well. Unfortunately, Standard version is a one-time only purchase, which means come next month the user will have to upgrade and commit to one-year subscription or abandon the software.
