Acronis True Image 2009 makes protecting home computers easier than ever

  • 13 October, 2008 15:10

<p><b>SYDNEY, Aust., 13 October, 2008 </b> — Acronis®, Inc. (<u></u>), a provider of affordable, scalable storage management and disaster recovery software, today announced the availability of the latest version of its home product – Acronis True Image Home 2009. This powerful and easy-to-use backup and recovery solution provides complete PC protection, requiring less work from home users and allowing them to recover from the impact of viruses, unstable software downloads and failed hard drives quickly.</p>
<p>Acronis True Image provides both full image and file-based backups. Image-based backups take a snapshot of the entire computer – including programs and the operating system – which can be restored in the event of a hard drive crash or catastrophic operating system failure. With file-based backup, users can select specific files and folders to protect.</p>
<p>“More and more home users realise the necessity of backing up their PCs to protect their precious digital assets,” said Bill Taylor-Mountford, General Manager of Acronis Australia and New Zealand. “An ideal solution for home users, Acronis True Image Home 2009 is designed to make backup and recovery easier than ever. This new version offers more features and greater flexibility for home users to choose what to backup and how to backup based on their individual requirements.”</p>
<p><b>Backup made easy</b>
Acronis True Image Home 2009 includes a number of features that make it easy and nearly invisible for users to protect their computers. A new interface places the most commonly used and important functions front and centre. With one-click protection, a user can quickly and easily set up a backup routine and then start it with a single mouse click.</p>
<p>Other features that make backup easy include:
- Smart scheduling – Run backups automatically at preset or elapsed times when the user is idle, on user login/logout, on system startup/shutdown, and in coordination with other events
- Set and forget backups – Configure once and perform backups automatically
- Auto backup based on destination availability – Users can decide to back up automatically or as soon as a destination drive is available.</p>
<p>Enhanced features for complete flexibility and security Additional features that go beyond backup and recovery make Acronis True Image Home 2009 a powerful software program that can protect the security of personal data, while making it easy to organise and locate files.</p>
<p>The disk cloning feature makes upgrading computer systems painless. With it, there is no need to reinstall the operating system, applications, or re-key user settings when cloning a PC or increasing its storage capacity.</p>
<p>Full text search enables an end user to search for file names and/or content within an archive, using Windows or Google desktop search. This makes it simple to find particular files, even if they are located within a backup archive.</p>
<p>The software also incorporates Acronis Drive Cleanser, an AU$62.99 value that wipes out personal or organisational data in the event a computer hard drive is replaced or an entire system is donated or discarded. The File Shredder function safely destroys individual files so they can’t be resurrected.</p>
<p><b>Pricing and Availability</b>
Acronis True Image Home 2009 is now available through retailers and online from the Acronis website (<u></u>). List price remains the same at AU$62.99.</p>
