It would be quite easy to simply say that Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation is the best backup program; It’s the faskiểm tra all-around imaging program we’ve tested, it’s dead reliable, and it sports every imaginable option.

Design & features

True Image 2017 has an attractive sầu interface that’s relatively easy to use—once you’re familiar with it.

Be careful buying True Image. When Acronis says subscription, they mean it. A perpetual license is another $30.

Performance

We run a number of backups và restores with every program we Reviews và True Image aced all of them. It completed our timed small 115GB Windows system backup in less than four minutes, faster than most of the other programs (though several seconds slower than Aomei’s Backupper Standard). But it was twice as fast as Backupper when handling our 48GB mix of files và folders. CPU usage was quite heavy, about 75 percent, far greater than with most programs at their default settings. Speed isn’t a real concern for most users who tend to perkhung background or after-hours backups. But if you’re backing up a lot of stuff, or from a number of PCs, speed is definitely an asphối, & one that True Image possesses in abundance.


On the other h&, True Image’s tốc độ & hefty feature set come with a price: a whopping six processes running in the background by mặc định. While any performance hit will largely be unnoticeable in a relatively modern, multi-core system, loading them noticeably lengthened our boot times. There’s a lot of stuff in the system tray as well. We’d very much like the ability to configure True Image lớn use less resources & keep a lower profile.

Buying advice

Acronis True Image 2017 excels in some key areas. It’s the faschạy thử overall backup program we’ve sầu tested by a bunch; has just about every feature you could wish for; và offers affordable online storage. And, if you live sầu your computing life dangerously, the Plus & Premium versions offer additional security against ransom-ware. Given the heavy footprint and the expense, it’s best suited for power users, but overkill for pretty much everyone else.
