Acronis has just released True Image 2014, featuring scheduled automatic backup to the Acronis Cloud, as well as imaging to traditional, locally-attached storage. Like previous versions, TI2K14's powerful capabilities can safeguard important data from natural disasters, theft, or hardware failure by keeping a complete system image in a safe remote location.
A simple, user interface lets you backup/restore your data easier than ever. With its desktop and mobile applications, including iOS and Android support, backup data can be accessed and restored anywhere, anytime to any PC.
The certified Windows 8-compatible software performs both full or incremental backup to local storage. Backups to the Acronis Cloud are also possible, so you're covered even if your local backup is damaged, lost, or stolen. Five gigabytes (5GB) of secure Acronis Cloud storage is included at no charge for one year ($9.99 per year thereafter.)
I've been using True Image Home Edition since 2009. Burning a rescue CD/DVD, booting from USB, creating/restoring system images have all remained virtually idiot-proof version after version. Other products offer similar features, but Acronis always seems to do it better and more reliably.
True Image 2014 by Acronis sells for $49.99. A 3-PC license pack is also available for $79.99. Acronis Cloud storage options above 5GB range from 50GB to 250GB. 50GB starts at $29.99/year. A free, 30-day trial is also available. For more information, visit Acronis.com.
