Acronis True Image Features
Full Image Backup
Protect everything to recover anything. Having a mirror image of your system disk or a selected partition means you can easily recover whatever you need – from your full system to an individual file or folder.
File and Folder Backups
Control the nature of your backups. Select individual files and folders that you want specific replicas of when you don’t want a full image copy.
Office 365 Backup
Create direct cloud-to-cloud backups of your Office 365 account, including the emails and attachments from your Outlook.com mailbox and all of the files and folders in your OneDrive.
Active Disk Cloning
Make an exact replica of a Windows or Mac system while it’s in use, without having to stop and reboot. The easiest way to migrate your data – OS, files, applications, and settings – to a larger or faster disk.
Acronis Survival Kit
Create an all-in-one recovery tool on an external drive that contains everything you need to restart your system, including the required boot media and full image backups of your entire system.
Incremental and Differential Backups
Both incremental and differential backups are “smart” backups that save time and disk space by only backing up changed files. But they differ significantly in how they do it, and how useful the result is. You may update backups up to three times faster with our Change-Block Tracker technology that follows modifications to an image in real-time.
Keep working, playing or surfing: backups run in the background without affecting your computer’s performance. Continuously back up locally or to the cloud, capturing changes as often as every five minutes.
Automated Dual Protection
Back up locally while simultaneously replicating it in the cloud so you’ve always got a secure off-site copy for recovery.
Restoring from the cloud should be just as easy and efficient as backing up. Now it is. We’ve enhanced the underlying backup technology to deliver the better overall performance of our already fast cloud restores, resulting in an even faster, more reliable and more stable cloud restore experience.
Experts agree that the 3-2-1 backup strategy is the most effective approach to data protection. Now Acronis makes the process easy and efficient by replicating local backups in the cloud automatically so you always have an off-site copy available for recovery. Once you’ve successfully completed the first backup, the backup and replication occur simultaneously.
Tray Notification Center
Safeguarding data requires you to stay informed about your system, your files, and your protection. With Acronis True Image 2020, you can get messages pushed to the desktop tray that allows you to easily monitor the status of your backups, receive timely tips on how to enhance your protection, and quickly respond to any issues.
Back-Up on Selected Wi-Fi
Where you back up should be your choice. Now you can easily avoid the metered connections and unsecured public networks that put your data at risk by selecting the Wi-Fi networks you use to back up your data – keeping your uploads secure.
Enhanced Backup Technology
To retain control over their data, users need easy, efficient access to their backed-up content. Our new backup format delivers better overall performance, enabling faster browsing of cloud backups, improved backup/recovery speeds, and data deduplication.
Restore your data to a new Mac machine more easily, even if it is spread across APFS volumes on your current system. It’s a much more efficient way to migrate your APFS volumes.

Our new machine learning models make it more effective, and the latest version now stops illicit service termination attacks. You will be informed of the reason a particular process is being monitored or blocked as malicious.
Custom Power Management
Backups are great, but creating them uses electricity. Manage your backups so they don’t drain the battery, ensuring your laptop will run when you need it. You can set a minimum power level for backups, or completely block backups on battery power.
Power Nap Backups
How efficient would it be if you could get tasks done while you were asleep? Mac users come close now that they can choose to back up their machine’s data when it enters Power Nap mode. Not only will your Mac’s data be updated during its Power Nap, but your backups will also capture those changes too.

Acronis True Image Benefits
Restoration of the data can be done even if Windows becomes unbootable because the suite allows you to create a bootable rescue media (CD/DVD or USB storage device).
Furthermore, the Startup and Recovery Manager is capable to start Acronis before loading the operating system, by overwriting the master boot record and making available the option to boot straight into the program.
Perform any unsafe operation in the Try mode
Try & Decide feature extends the functionality of the package, allowing you to make changes to the system and discard them at system restart if they’re affecting the system negatively. However, it also offers the possibility to apply all modifications.
Mount virtual drives
All backup files created with Acronis True Image can be mounted as virtual drives. This way you can check the contents and even copy data without having to restore the entire copy.
Different backup modes and advanced settings
The suite includes all regular forms of backup (full, incremental and differential) for helping you save data on your computer or Acronis Cloud and carry out sync operations across all your devices.
What’s more, you are allowed to split, validate and encrypt backups, create an exact copy of your whole partition, insert comments, shut down the computer at the end of the task, run a backup as a different Windows user, adjust the compression level, send email notifications, and create exclusion lists.
Security and privacy tools
Apart from the solid backup features it offers, Acronis puts at your disposal a suite of instruments designed to help you keep the disks clean of unnecessary data. As such, System Clean-up utility can search for Windows activity traces (temporary files and history lists) and eliminate them.
Moreover, the bundle incorporates the possibility to sanitize hard disk space by running a set of overwriting routines that prevent the recovery of any deleted items. Secure deletion is also on the list, Acronis offering an ample pack of efficient destruction algorithms (Peter Gutmann, Bruce Schneier, Russian and German standards, etc.).
Protection utilities, backup settings, and conversion
Users running Windows 7 Ultimate or Enterprise can combine Acronis’ conversion capabilities with Boot Sequence Manager utility to turn system backup copies into VHD images and boot from them. Plus, you may design a secure partition for storing backups on your disk.
