Acronis has long been a popular destination for backup solutions. True Image 2013 adds mobile device support for its cloud storage to attract more users.

For people who are new to backing up their computers, True Image 2013 brings an approachable interface with short, helpful descriptions that acquaint users with the primary functions. The cartoon sketches might seem childish at first glance, but regardless, the friendly attitude offers assurance that the partitioning and backup process isn't as intimidating as one might think.

The new version retains all the standard and advanced features from 2012 -- you can still create backups in about every way imaginable with Acronis 2013's backup and recovery tools. Alongside the classic disk and partition backup modes, True Image 2013 lets you create and restore your backups online via cloud, search for backups from the file level, set periodic backups and recoveries for your media content, and restore your machine states via bootable media such as USB. Creating a direct backup worked best for us.

Acronis' mobile experience was mixed at best; we used an Android tablet to test out the file-syncing and cloud-backup features. Though it recognized our synced drive, it kept crashing even after trying to create a new folder. Your mileage may vary depending on the compatibility of your Android device and the version of your operating system. For our device, it flat out did not work as intended. Acronis' other syncing and cloud features may sound great but its strongest asset lies in the the program's default disk backup and cloning functions; they're speedy and effective. We recommend that you exercise caution when using other recovery options, especially if you have other backup programs installed, as Acronis uses its own unique format.

    "terrible software, terrible support, rude managers"

    October 03, 2014   |   By jakeernest

    Version: Acronis True Image 2015 2015

    Pros

    I'm hard-pressed to find anything positive to say. There's much better, more intuitive backup software available for about the same price. I guess if I had to say something positive, I'd say the installation went smoothly (as long as you remove the previous version first).

    Cons

    Nonstop backup is a non-starter. It's a joke. It's impossible to recover anything using it. The incremental backup works, but even that is clunky and makes it difficult to open the vaults (or whatever they call them) to find the item I need.

    The company representative love to play the game of "it's a backup problem," so they don't have to support the software after 30 days. I actually had a tech support person tell me this (out of school). He probably got fired for saying it.

    None of the upper managers are worth talking to. They don't return calls or emails.

    Summary

    Don't bother. There's better out there. I have 20 years of experience with backup and recovery software, and this product is a loser.
