What if you got on the plane and realized that your laptop had chosen that moment to give up the ghost? It’s exactly as horrifying as it sounds, made worse by the fact that we’re absolutely at the mercy of the whims of the hardware that we rely on.
The No. 1 backup solution
The only way to avoid all this hand-wringing is to seek out a proper backup solution. As the leading cloud backup solution today, Acronis True Image 2017 is the obvious choice. Intuitive, and feature-rich, it has a wide array of options for backing up everything ranging from your entire PC to a specific file or folder on your hard drive. The most secure backup location is clearly the Acronis cloud, but you can back up data to a second hard drive or even an FTP server as well.
You also get a lot of control over exactly how and when backups happen. Choose from between daily, weekly, monthly backups, or set it to run automatically after system startup. And with the ability to select between incremental or differential backups, you don’t have to bother with making a full backup every single time.
Pure, unadulterated speed
Most people think of data backups as a tedious, time-consuming affair, but the reality couldn’t be further from that. There is barely any downtime when backing up your data, which means you’ll get your peace of mind sooner rather than later.
How much faster is it? As it turns out, up to three to six times faster on Windows computers than competing products when backing up to an external USB 3.0 drive. It’s also up to 60 per cent quicker than previous versions of True Image in most popular tasks, and 30 per cent faster than Apple Time Machine on Apple computers.
Innovating social backups
True Image 2017 isn’t just any ol’ backup software though. It feels fresh and innovative, and is designed for the 21st-century consumer. Users today need to do more than just back up their PC. Huge portions of their lives reside on their phones and Facebook accounts, in the form of texts, photos, and other digital paraphernalia. In other words, there are a ton of memories residing on mobile devices and online.
That’s all easily taken care of with True Image 2017. The Acronis True Image mobile app can back up photos, contacts, and messages directly to your PC, making it even easier to restore your files. And then there’s the Facebook backup feature, which backs up your entire profile, including things like liked pages and comments.Now, you can rest assured that every facet of your digital life is secure.
