True Image Editor's Review

There was a time majority of PC users relied on Windows integrated data backup tool but that is no longer the case. As it is, Windows bundled data backup utility is quite basic and cannot address needs of network administrators and demanding users. If you are looking for a realiable and feature rich third party data backup utility, Acronis True Image can be a worthy choice. Users of earlier versions may not feel too excited to upgrade but inclusion of robust cloud storage is useful and the revamped UI is also attractive. The app is also ideal for users who love to tinker with settings and want more customized data backup and disc imaging solution. Beneath its simplistic interface, the app keeps all the bells and whistles- password protection, validation, scheduled back up -you just need to explore.

Acronis True Image’s latest edition is compatible with FAT16/32and NTFS formats. It can be installed on PCs with Windows XP SP3 and later versions. The price will vary on the variant you buy but it is reasonable when compared with contender apps in the same segment. When it comes to sheer features, Acronis TrueImage trounces the competition. It can perform nearly all backup and restore tasks. Imaging entire hard disc and partitions is possible as is taking file backups of specific folders. There are plenty of add –ons like recovery zone, Acronis boot manager and Acronis Cloud- a cloud-based storage with 5 GB free quota.

Despite the oodles of features and tools, Acronis True Image’s interface is really user friendly and a first time user will not need much time getting used to it. The interface is divided in three large tabs- backing up data to Acronis Cloud, recovering data and backing up a system. Once you dig into the tabs, a complex set of menus with advanced options appear. However, the default options are ideal for beginners. Experienced users can select options such as "Switch to disk mode”. After a full backup is created, the app adds incremental backups by default.

To perform a file-or-folder based backup instead of backing up data in the entire hard disk, you have to use “Backup and Recovery" tab. There is a separate section for Synchronization which enables you to set up cloud-based or network based file sync tasks. The app does a superb job of syncing data between specific systems as it is.

It is natural that when you invest in a data backup tool, it should have options to let you restored backed up files. When you use Acronis Cloud for backing up data, a web interface pops up which looks somewhat like Dropbox Web interface. You can restore the files you want using this web interface, recover an earlier version or share a link to the cloud. However, it lacks the feature to mount a backed-up drive. Actually, Acronis has this feature but it is positioned in Tools and Utilities tab on its main menu. The app does an overall nice job of backing up data and restoration. The only glitch is restoring image backup of an entire partition can be lengthy.

True Image offers some additional useful features apart from its main task, Data back and image restoration. It can be used to create a boot-time recovery provision for your PC. With the app, you can convert Windows backups to its native format, or the opposite.

Acronis's own Cloud storage offers 5GB data storage for 1 year. For additional storage needs, you have to pay. However, its cloud package rates are really competitive and reasonable. The app’s rescue disc requires 512MB system memory and its UI is not very intuitive. You can add it to Windows PE boot disc though the process can be quite tedious and comes with limitations.

Positive Points:
• Comprehensive data and image backup options.
• 5 GB free cloud storage for 1 year.
• Reasonably priced cloud storage packages.
• Oodles of backup customization tools.

Negative Points:
• Some features may baffle casual users.
• Rescue disc creation not intuitive.


Acronis TrueImage is a vastly feature packed disc imaging app and the integration of robust cloud storage makes it quite desirable. However, it may prove to be overkill for home users who do not need extensive backup customizations. For network administrators requiring gigabytes of data backup and periodical restoration, this tool is quite handy. Before churning out money for the app, ensure you have a capable system and a speedy internet connection, to leverage all benefits offered by it.
