Comprehensive Software Goes Beyond PC Protection for a Better Computing Experience
WOBURN, MA, Aug. 23, 2011 –/BackupReview.info/– Backup and recovery specialist Acronis is today launching AcronisÂ® True Image Home 2012, the latest version of its multi award-winning consumer software. In a move that promises to shake up the market, Acronis is the first to combine online backup, local backup and file synchronization in one product, not only protecting home PCs but also giving home users easy access to their digital lives, wherever they are, whenever they want.
Acronis True Image Home 2012 brings together Acronis’ established, easy to use, disk imaging backup and recovery technology with file synchronization. The software allows home users to sync their files no matter where they are stored — PC, USBs, NAS, as well as in the cloud via AcronisÂ® True ImageÂ™ Online. If a change is made in one location, it is automatically updated in others, meaning home users can access their most up-to-date data anywhere, any time. Consumers can also share data securely with their family and friends.
Until now, file synchronization technology has been found in dedicated file sync products but not in disk imaging backup products, which is used to capture an entire PC, including the operating system, applications and files for fast and reliable recovery. Acronis True Image Home 2012 offers all these technologies in one easy-to-use solution.
The file sync is as simple as setting up a folder (akin to My Documents) and placing data in that folder. The information is automatically transferred and available between the different locations that the user wants to access. Home users can also choose to sync their data securely with family and friends with Acronis True Image Home 2012 installed on their PCs and laptops. Synchronization is easy via a home network or over the internet.
“Since 2002, we’ve been trusted by home users worldwide to protect their most valuable information. We’ve built a strong user base that provides us with excellent feedback to further enhance our products,” explains Jason Donahue, CEO of Acronis. “With the new version, we’ve thought beyond traditional backup features to really give people an easier computing experience. People have spent years saving their files to flash drives or emailing themselves the latest version of their documents and it’s messy and ineffective. Our latest developments will enable home users to take that extra leap, from hoping you have the latest version, to knowing that you do.”
“The product is very simple to install, very fast, responsive and is really easy to use,” said beta tester Phil Coats. “I found that the ‘Get Started Tutorials’ were easy to understand. Logging also gets a big thumbs up!”
