Acronis Launches True Image Home 2012
Comprehensive software goes beyond PC protection for a better computing experience
SINGAPORE - Acronis launches the Acronis 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 Acronis True Image 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.
Other new or improved features in the product include:
- New: Extended support large disks (2TB+)
- Improved: Acronis Nonstop Backup now compatible with NAS, plus better optimized network load
- Improved: Enhanced NAS support
- Improved: Enhanced GUI
