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.


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.


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.

simple plenty of options


poor layout, not intuitive. often received erroneous reads on my backups, saying they are invalid when they are not. Problematic. Poor customer support.

None that I found


Attempted to use Acronis provided by Crucial to clone my new ssd. Program caused my windows 10 computer to freeze, upon reboot system was unstable, second reboot fixed it.


Ended up using Easis free cloning program, it did a good job.

"avoid if you value your data"

clean looking user interface


very buggy, hangs system, and locks drive so it is unusable and data inaccessible, refuses to start, hangs in a loop, then uninstall fails to run too. Worst software I have tried to use in 25 years. support acknowledge problems but gave up trying to help and disappeared


avoid True Image 2016 at all costs. you are better off with no back up at all

"Not Impressed"

Unfortunately, no "pros".


Confusing, slow and buggy. Overall, I was frustrated and felt no confidence that I'd be able to restore my system with Acronis. I'm now using "Casper 10" which makes a perfect, bootable clone of my entire system drive in about an hour. Takes about 3 clicks to get it started. As for support, you'll get a detailed reply from the developer within a few hours. How can you beat that?
