  • Backs up everything, not just files!
  • One-time fee for the software.


  • You probably want online or remote backup, too.
  • Software can get outdated.



Let’s look at the latest rendition of this software, Acronis True Image Home 2012…

While most of the services we review are for online backups, it’s always nice to have some hard copies of your files (like CDs and DVDs) around for quick restoration if needed.

That’s why we have this review of True Image software from Acronis, which is a very robust backup application that can backup your entire computer.

Basically, True Image is a lifesaver in the event of a serious hard drive crash. It lets you backup your entire computer by making an exact copy of your hard drive. That includes your operating system, applications, and data.

It lets you backup your computer and restore everything from one source. No reinstallations required!

You can also backup and restore individual files as you wish. Personal data, files, images, Outlook emails, and more – it’s all covered.

If you want to do more than simply backup some data, this looks like the perfect program for you.

It has won awards from Computer Shopper, HardWareMag, PC Today, Smart Computing, and more.

It does cost $49.99 for one license, but that’s a one-time fee. It’s well worth the price if it saves you from the hassle of just one disaster.

Yep, there is a downloadable free trial. It works for 15 days, so that should give you time to get a feel for it.


Final Decision on Acronis True Image

What I liked about Acronis True Image:
One-time fee.

What I did not like about Acronis True Image:
