[v21.0] Acronis True Image – #1 ultra-fast system/partition backup & restore solution

Acronis True Image (ATI for short) is an almighty clone/backup & restore/recovery utility working well under both Windows desktop and PE (Preinstallation Environment) with ultra fast speed, high compression ratio and very simple operation. Fully compatible with Windows and gives full play to the hardware performance.

// Key Features //

  • Full Disk-Image Backup
  • Disk clone/restore with very fast speed (takes advantage of CPU’s multi-core and multi-threading features)
  • One-click of F11 (when the computer starts up) to enter automatic restoring process
  • For business users, it can backup a large amount of data to a high-capacity DVD
  • Optimized for and fully compatible with Windows
  • All the work can be done on the Windows desktop
  • Support incremental backup: easier to control than ImageX
  • You can backup any disk, partition, or the entire computer to any kind of external storage media (including online space)
  • Allows to backup files/partition being used
  • Save backup to special hidden partition
  • Support schedule based backup tasks
  • Completely and permanently destroy all the confidential data
  • Very easy to use
  • ….

The well-known Norton’s Ghost isn’t the only choice for OS clone/backup and restore, but many users are used to use the classic Ghost 11/12 (under DOS/PE) or One Key Ghost (on Windows desktop) to do system backup and restore all the time. But now, we have Acronis True Image, it has much faster backup/restore speed, better compatibility and does not need to restart to DOS/PE to operate like Ghost 11/12. Instead, all the operation can be finished on Windows desktop which does not affect the user’s job as far as possible. Even the backuping file/folder/partition/disk is in use, just never mind!

Moreover, Acronis True Image can set up a special hidden partition on the hard drive (can’t be accessed or operated in normal ways) for saving backup data/files, thus greatly improves the security and confidentiality of the backup data. That means as long as your hard disk does not happen physical injury, then your data will still be quietly hidden in there.

For many Ghost’s fan users, perhaps it’s time to say goodbye to Norton’s Ghost and many other similar tools, but not for AppNee now – because, we just can’t stand its massive body (about 280~550+ MB).

// Prompts //

  • This software automatically installs itself into the volume C (does not allow to customize the installation location), and comes with lots of startups and monitoring programs running in the background. Therefore, after use, it is recommended to use Total Uninstall to clear it out!
  • Even if it is so good, AppNee absolutely can’t tolerate any kinds of software to be forcibly installed to “C:\” and arbitrarily set up a lot of background monitoring programs that slow down the speed of whole system.
  • If not for its excellent backup/restore functionality, we would add Acronis True Image’s all series of products into our blacklist!
  • For user who like to optimize system services, when you use ATI to backup, do remember temporarily start the Acronis Shceduler2 Service (you can stop it after done). Or ATI can not perform the backup work at all.
  • Beside, if you deleted ATI’s cache files under “C:\”, then it will probably prompt you to register when you start it again. In this case, just click ‘Offline Activation’ and enter the corresponding product keys once more, no need to install the whole program from scratch.
  • Disable the “Automatically check for updates at startup” feature suggested. And you’d better block any connections from ATI using your Firewall to stop validation (especially the ‘license_activator.exe’ file).
  • You’d better always use Acronis True Image offline. If it asks for activation again, just run the activator once more; or if you experience any other problems, then reinstall/repair Acronis True Image, and run the activator again
