Indispensable for protecting data,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Acronis True Image Home 2013 PC Backup and Recovery (PC) (DVD-ROM)
I would recommend this program for safeguarding data on hard drives. Although there are many options available, i mostly use the "Clone Drive" facility whereby I make a duplicate copy of my hard drive onto an external USB drive. I thus have complete protection against any kind of data failure, whether it be due to software corruption, virus infection or a physical failure of the internal drive. Ideally, one should have two external drives, in case of failure of one of your backups. As one data security expert has said, "If you haven't three copies of your data, then you do not have any data at all!" So this is most definitely a data life-saver. It is easy to use and provides many other options to the one just described, a very versatile and useful package indeed.
My only reservation is that each version of Acronis is suitable for only a very limited number of versions of the operating system. So, as I upgrade the operating system, so I need to repeatedly buy new copies of Acronis. Hence the four star rating as opposed to five.
