Acronis True Image is software for creating disk images easily. You can create it while is running Microsoft Windows or out of line by booting any CD / DVD, PXE, USB Flash drive or others methods. This software is able to restore the previously captured image in other disk and copy the content and the structure into the new disk. Besides, it allows you to change the size of the partition you want, being quite customizable.
Acronis True Image can support a huge amount of file systems such as Ext2, Ext3, FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, Linux Swap, ReiserFS and Reiser4. You can make raw copies but with this method, the image is bigger and you can’t compress its size. Once you download this program, you can create an exact copy of the hard disk and Acronis True Image allows you to restore it in a few minutes. You can make backups of any document, video, photo, music file, application and settings among others.
Interface and restoration options of this software
The interface is very simple, intuitive and clean. It is divided into a three-panel dialog which includes different buttons to backup or recover data. From this point, you can get access to other advanced and complex menus and features, but at first, it’s not recommended for beginners. Nevertheless, it includes ‘Switch to disk mode’ option, which allows you to restore the whole disk and not only a partition.
You have also the option to perform a backup of a specific folder or file. If you want to do it, you just have to click on ‘Backup and Recovery’ option, in which you can find all these options. And finally, for those who like to have everything connected, you have the possibility of synchronizing a free cloud-based file in Acronis Cloud. This option provides similar characteristics than a local one and it works really smoothly in the tests we have made. It works in a web interface quite similar to Dropbox, so it will be really familiar to you if you have experience in the other program.
Acronis True Image stands out for having a new option called Try&Decide. It gives you the opportunity of dividing your hard disk into several small partitions. Then, you can make the change you want, knowing that it won’t be permanent unless you decide it. Maybe, it’s a bit risky if you make important changes, but it doesn’t give us any problem when we tested it.
