Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office is the new name for Acronis True Image. The name change reflects the fact Acronis is more than simple drive backup – in addition to a full backup suite you get comprehensive anti-malware protection.
In terms of its core capabilities, Acronis offers the full gamut of backup options, from individual files to complete drive imaging (with smart incremental and differential options to encourage daily backups without filling your storage), active disk cloning for migrating to faster or bigger hard drives, and support on higher-paid tiers for cloud-hosted backups to give you access to your files from anywhere on any device.
There’s also an Archive option for offloading larger files to the cloud, a Sync tool that works with two PCs with Acronis installed and a host of additional disk-related tools, including system clean-up and drive-scrubbing tools, Acronis Secure Zone (an encrypted partition for storing sensitive files), and Acronis Universal Restore (a tool for migrating all your apps, documents and settings to a new PC).
Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office is simple to use – a user-friendly frontend packed with lots of wizards and step-by-step guides, with plenty of advanced tuning available to those who want full control over their system.
The Advanced package improves on Essentials by offering you cloud storage (250GB in this instance) to enable you to backup your most important files and data remotely. In addition, you can still backup to local disks, network attached storage or remote destinations via FTP. You can also backup Microsoft 365 data and setup automatic replication.
Includes 1-Device license for either a PC or Mac with a 1-Year subscription.
Review by Mike Williams.
Most system performance issues are often a result of other software clashing with your brand new software. For instance, security software can clash with a background process, such as a system maintenance tool or defragmentation software. Another cause of system slowdown, is a result of two software applications performing a similar task. As an example, Windows includes a firewall switched on as a default. Your new security suite is likely to include a firewall. You only need one firewall running. In this example, try turning off your system firewall.
Uninstalling Your New Software
Occasionally you may need to either temporarily or permanently remove your new software.
On a Windows computer, go to the Control Panel and choose Programs and Features. Locate the program within the list, then click it to highlight it. Finally, click the Uninstall button at the top of the list and follow the instructions to remove the program from your PC.
On an Apple Mac computer, using Finder, locate the Applications folder. Within the Applications folder, find the name of the application you wish to remove. Simply drag the icon to your Trash icon in your dock. Empty the Trash to remove the files from your computer.
