Are you running an older Acronis True Image and having to disconnect your backup drive to protect your files from Ransomware or using other free backup software?
Now’s the time to get the latest Acronis True Image 2018 with lots of new features including Ransomware protection for your backup files.
What’s New in Acronis 2018
Clone an active Windows system directly to a USB external drive or local drive without stopping your system and restarting Windows using bootable media. You can create a snapshot of the active partition and boot directly from the new disk.
WinPE Media Builder
Easily create boot media to recover your system to the same or new hardware. Create a WinPE environment to quickly resolve driver configuration issues. Use the predetermined settings of Simple mode or customize your Media Builder preferences in Advanced mode.
Converts to Virtual Hard Drive
Test different programs and system settings, or run your system on a virtual machine by converting your full image backups into a virtual hard disk format. You can use all your programs and access files as normal within that virtual system, and you can run it without needing Acronis True Image 2018.
Faster Backups with Changed-Block Tracker
Reduce the amount of time it takes for incremental and differential local image backups. Our technology monitors changes to an image in real-time, which can make incremental backups up to three-times faster for small changes (less than 30 percent of a disk).
Backup Activity and Statistics
Manage your data better using more visuals from a new Backup Activity and Statistics display. Track the status of backups, measure the file size and speed of backups, and view color-coded displays of the type of data stored.
You’ll see the amount of data you’ve backed up, the number of backup versions in storage, and how many photos, videos, music and documents that are available to restore.
Acronis Active Protection for all
Prevent ransomware from encrypting your files before it starts. Acronis Active Protection uses heuristic analysis and machine learning to detect, stop and reverse the effects of ransomware. Included in all editions of Acronis True Image 2018, and a Mac-version is now available as well.
Monitor the number of processes that have been flagged as potentially dangerous, identify which ones were blocked, and manage a whitelist so your trusted applications can run uninterrupted. The dashboard provides metrics that show how Acronis Active Protection is defending your system.
Wireless Mobile Backup to NAS
Back up your mobile device automatically to network-attached storage (NAS), as well as your local Mac or PC, using the local Wi-Fi connection. NAS can be left on all the time, so you’ll never miss backing up your mobile device: The process will start as soon as you connect to the same Wi-Fi as the NAS.
