Editors' Review

Acronis True Image lets you back up your PC thoroughly, preserving a complete image of your entire system in the cloud or on a local drive. With this comprehensive application, you'll never have to worry about losing any of your files, and if something goes wrong, you can restore your computer right back to the way it was.

Pros

Backup options: Acronis True Image gives you multiple options for backing up, including the ability to store your backup on a local drive or in the cloud. You can choose to back up your entire system or only certain files and folders. And once you've created your initial complete backup, True Image will create continuous incremental backups to record only items that have changed, which saves both time and storage space.

Time Explorer: When you restore, you can, of course, opt to restore the most recent version of your files. But if you would rather restore from an earlier version, you can use the app's Time Explorer feature to go back and locate the past image you want. This can be done for individual files as well as the entire system.

Cons

Tough for beginners: The main interface is straightforward enough, and if you stick with the default settings, it will walk you through the basic backup process smoothly. However, there are various advanced options that an inexperienced user could quite easily select by accident, and they are not accompanied by clear explanations of what they will do.

Bottom Line

Acronis True Image is a great way to back up your PC so that you can restore quickly and get back on track. While it may not be the best choice for novice users, anyone with more advanced skills and needs will enjoy the power and flexibility that this program provides. You can try it for free for 30 days, with a free 250GB of cloud storage space. After the trial period, True Image costs $49.99, and the cloud storage plans range from $9.99 per year for 5GB to $99.99 per year for 500GB.

"outdated software"

May 21, 2015  |  By AdrianLew

 |  Version: Acronis True Image 2015 1.1

Pros

if it works then its great to do safety back ups every few weeks. But make sure pre test it works with your windows version

Cons

not easy to operate control panel.. Should be a more user friendly one, with few steps. While acronis was working great on windows 7, I was not even able to recover windows 8 once :( Just wasted my time, after recovery windows did not start up, even with support request I just wasted time and the back up was useless :(

Summary

I would not buy this software again unless the interface is improved and easy to use.. and it recovers for sure.

Took me 4 clicks and 10 minutes using, samsung software that came with new hard drive to do the same job!

"Disaster with Surface Pro 3"

May 12, 2015  |  By wjcole1945

 |  Version: Acronis True Image 2015 1.1

Pros

If you can get the snapi fix you can do a backup.

Cons

Terrible user interface on the Surface Pro 3 (view does not scale properly)
Drastic change from previous user interface. Be sure to read the fine print to get at all options.
Will not restore to SP3 unless you acquire a hub, a USB mouse, and USB keyboard, to operate with your USB drive.
Defeats the purpose of being able to do regular backups that can be restored to dead metal.

Summary

DO NOT BUY if you want to use with Surface Pro 3.

"Not happy with this version"

April 25, 2015  |  By Forsite

 |  Version: Acronis True Image 2015 1.1

Pros

Purchased ATI version 10 and used it regularly, then upgraded to 12 and also used it without much fuss.
Version 15 appears to be a bit of a jumble. maybe because the layout is totaly different from 10 and 12, but I still haven't worked out how to give my images the names I want to use (easy in 10 and 12), and MOST annoying is that, while partition imaging is easy (once you find the right button to press), they appear to be reluctan (impossible?) to reload. It just sits on "calculating" the time required and it goes on and on and on. In the previous versions, there was a list and you just clicked on the selected update and off it went, no fuss.

Cons

See above.

Summary

I'll be in no rush to upgrade to 15 from version 12.

"Tragically unfinished product"

January 31, 2015  |  By bhenchot2

 |  Version: Acronis True Image 2015 1.1

Pros

Backs up the PC. Not sure as yet if the backup works. But that's a separate issue.

Cons

Every time you try to shut down the PC, it gives an error saying "Operations are in progress ... " At first I didn't know what it was because it doesn't even say it's an Acronis thing. Then after hours of leaving it with the same message and seeing no progress, I force shut down the machine. This is clearly less than the best way to treat your machine and it turns out - it is BECAUSE OF THIS BACKUP SOFTWARE. Acronis couldn't be bothered to fix it in a patch. You as a customer are clearly not important to them.

Summary

If you have your back to the wall, buy this otherwise find another way out.

"Free-to-try for 30 days.... except if you want to clone"

January 24, 2015  |  By billyknit5150

 |  Version: Acronis True Image 2015 1.1

Pros

It's free for 30 days

Cons

You can't use some features until you buy. More specifically, the 'Clone' feature.

Summary

I was going to forgo the terrible reviews here buy if it met my 1 need: Cloning. This feature is locked unless you buy. I'll never even know if it's any good.
