Acronis True Image 2017

What is Acronis® True Image™?
Acronis True Image 2017 is an integrated software suite that ensures the security of all of the information on your PC. It can back up your documents, photos, email, and selected partitions, and even the entire disk drive, including operating system, applications, settings, and all of your data.

Backups allow you to recover your computer system should a disaster occur, such as losing data, accidentally deleting critical files or folders, or suffering a complete hard disk crash.

Online Backup allows you to store your files and disks on Acronis Cloud. Your data will be protected even if your computer is lost, stolen, or destroyed, and your data can be entirely recovered onto a new device, if needed.

Key features:

  • Disk backup to a local storage and to Acronis Cloud.
  • File backup to a local storage and to Acronis Cloud.
  • Rescue bootable media.
  • Hard disk cloning.
  • Data archiving.
  • Family data protection.
  • File synchronization.
  • Security and privacy tools.


Basic concepts:
This section provides general information about basic concepts which could be useful for understanding how the program works.

Backup and recovery
Backup refers to the making copies of data so that these additional copies may be used to recover the original after a data loss event.

Backups are useful primarily for two purposes:

  • To recover an operating system when it is corrupted or cannot start (called disaster recovery).
    Refer to Protecting your system for more details about protecting your computer from a disaster.
  • To recover specific files and folders after they have been accidentally deleted or corrupted.


Acronis True Image 2017 does both by creating disk (or partition) images and file-level backups respectively.

Recovery methods:

  • Full recovery can be performed to the original location or to a new one. When the original location is selected, the data in the location is completely overwritten with the data from the backup. In case of a new location, the data is just copied to the new location from the backup.
  • Incremental recovery is performed only to the original location and only from a cloud backup. Before the recovery starts, the files in the original location are compared with the files in the backup by file attributes, such as file size and date of last modification. Those files that do not match are marked for recovery, the remaining files will be skipped during recovery. In that way, as opposed to the full recovery, Acronis True Image recovers only changed files. This method significantly reduces the recovery time and saves Internet traffic while recovering from Acronis Cloud.

Backup versions
Backup versions are the file or files created during each backup operation. The number of versions created is equal to the number of times the backup is executed. So, a version represents a point in time to which the system or data can be restored.

Backup versions represent full, incremental and differential backups – see Full, incremental and differential backups.

The backup versions are similar to file versions. The file versions concept is familiar to those who use a Windows feature called “Previous versions of files”. This feature allows you to restore a file as it existed on a particular date and time. A backup version allows you to recover your data in a similar way.

Disk cloning
This operation copies the entire contents of one disk drive to another disk drive. This may be necessary, for example, when you want to clone your operating system, applications, and data to a new larger capacity disk. You can do it two ways:

  • Use the Clone disk utility.
  • Back up your old disk drive, and then recover it to the new one.


Backup file format
Acronis True Image usually saves backup data in the proprietary tib format using compression. The data from .tib file backups can be recovered only through Acronis True Image, in Windows or in the recovery environment.

Acronis Nonstop Backup uses a special hidden storage for data and metadata. The backed up data is compressed and split into files of about 1 GB. These files also have a proprietary format and the data they contain can be recovered only with the help of Acronis True Image.

Backup validation
The backup validation feature allows you to confirm that your data can be recovered. The program adds checksum values to the data blocks being backed up. During backup validation, Acronis True Image opens the backup file, recalculates the checksum values and compares those values with the stored ones. If all compared values match, the backup file is not corrupted.

Scheduling
For your backups to be really helpful, they must be as “up-to-date” as possible. Schedule your backups to run automatically and on a regular basis.

Deleting backups
When you want to delete backups and backup versions you no longer need, please do it by using the tools provided by Acronis True Image 2017. Refer to Deleting backups and backup versions for details.

Acronis True Image 2017 stores information on the backups in a metadata information database. Therefore, deleting unneeded backup files in File Explorer will not delete information about these backups from the database. This will result in errors when the program tries to perform operations on the backups that no longer exist.

 Getting started with Acronis Cloud:
* Acronis Cloud might be unavailable in your region.

Remote storage
On the one hand, Acronis Cloud is a secure remote storage which you can use to store:

  • Backups of your files and folders.
  • Backups of your partitions and disks.
  • Versions of your synchronized files and folders.


Because files are stored on a remote storage, they are protected even if your computer is stolen or your house burns down. In the case of a disaster or data corruption, you can recover your files and even the entire contents of your computer.

With one account, you can save data from several computers and all your mobile devices running iOS and Android operating systems. Refer to What is True Image for mobile devices for details.

To start using Acronis Cloud, you need a subscription to the service. Refer to Subscription information for details.

Web application
On the other hand, Acronis Cloud is a web application that allows you to recover and manage the data you store on Acronis Cloud. To work with the application, you can use any computer connected to the Internet.

To access the application, go to https://www.acronis.com/my/online-backup/webrestore/, and then log in to your Acronis account.

Backup:

Backing up disks and partitions:
As opposed to file backups, disk and partition backups contain all the data stored on the disk or partition. This backup type is usually used to create an exact copy of a system partition of the whole system disk. Such backup allows you to recover your computer when Windows works incorrectly or cannot start.

To back up partitions or disks:

  1. Start Acronis True Image 2017.
  2. On the sidebar, click Backup.
  3. Click Add backup.
  4. [Optional] To rename the backup, click the arrow next to the backup name, click Rename, and then enter a new name.
  5. Click the Backup source area, and then select Disks and partitions.
  6. In the opened window, select the check boxes next to the partitions and disks that you want to back up, and then click OK.

    To view hidden partitions, click Full partition list.

    To back up dynamic disks you can use only the partition mode. 

Acronis True Image 2017

  1. Click the Backup destination area, and then select a destination for backup:
    • Acronis Cloud—Sign in to your Acronis account, and then click OK.

      If you do not have an Acronis account, click Create account, type your email address, password, and then click the Create account button. Refer to Acronis account for details.

    • Your external drive—When an external drive is plugged into your computer, you can select it from the list.
    • NAS—Select an NAS from the list of found NAS devices. If you have only one NAS, Acronis True Image 2017 will suggest using it as a backup destination by default.
    • Browse—Select a destination from the folder tree.

      If possible, avoid storing your system partition backups on dynamic disks, because the system partition is recovered in the Linux environment. Linux and Windows work with dynamic disks differently. This may result in problems during recovery.

  2. [optional step] Click Options to set the options for the backup, including Schedule, Scheme, and Password protection. For more information see Backup options.
  3. [optional step] Click the Add a comment icon, and then type a comment to the backup version. Backup comments will help you to find the necessary version later, when recovering your data.
  4. Perform one of the following:
    • To run the backup immediately, click Back up now.
    • To run the backup later or on a schedule, click the arrow to the right of the Back up now button, and then click Later.

When you back up your data to Acronis Cloud, the first backup may take a considerable amount of time to complete. Further backup processes will likely be much faster, because only changes to files will be transferred over the Internet.

Once an online backup is started, you are free to close Acronis True Image 2017. The backup process will continue in background mode. If you suspend the backup, turn off your computer, or disconnect it from the Internet, the backup will resume when you click Back up now or when the Internet connection is restored. A backup interruption does not cause your data to be uploaded twice.

 


Backing up files and folders:

To protect files such as documents, photos, music files, video files, there is no need to back up the entire partition containing the files. You can back up specific files and folders.

To back up files and folders:

  1. Start Acronis True Image 2017.
  2. On the sidebar, click Backup.
  3. Click Add backup.
  4. [Optional] To rename the backup, click the arrow next to the backup name, click Rename, and then enter a new name.
  5. Click the Backup source area, and then select Files and folders.
  6. In the opened window, select the check boxes next to the files and folders that you want to back up, and then click OK.

Recommended storage media:

  1. Acronis Cloud
  2. External drive

    If you plan to use an external USB hard drive with your desktop PC, we recommend that you connect the drive to a rear connector by using a short cable.

  3. Home file server, NAS, or NDAS

    Please check whether Acronis True Image 2017 detects the selected backup storage, both in Windows and when booted from the rescue media.

    To gain access to an NDAS-enabled storage device, in many cases you will need to specify the NDAS device ID (20 characters) and the write key (five characters). The write key allows you to use an NDAS-enabled device in write mode (for example, for saving your backups). Usually the device ID and write key are printed on a sticker attached to the bottom of the NDAS device or on the inside of its enclosure. If there is no sticker, you need to contact your NDAS device vendor to obtain that information.

  4. Network share

    See also: Authentication settings.

  5. FTP server

    See also: FTP connection.

  6. Optical discs (CD, DVD, BD)

    Blank optical discs such as DVD-R, DVD+R are very cheap, so they will be the lowest cost solution for backing up your data, though the slowest one.
    Due to the necessity of swapping discs, we strongly recommend to avoid backing up to DVDs if the number of discs is more than three. When there is no alternative to backing up to DVDs, we recommend to copy all DVDs to a folder on a hard disk, and then to recover from that folder.


The difference between file backups and disk/partition images:
When you back up files and folders, only the files and folder tree are compressed and stored.

Disk/partition backups are different from file and folder backups. Acronis True Image 2017 stores an exact snapshot of the disk or partition. This procedure is called “creating a disk image” or “creating a disk backup” and the resulting backup is often called “a disk/partition image” or “a disk/partition backup”.

What does a disk/partition backup contain?
A disk/partition backup contains all the data stored on the disk or partition:

  1. Zero track of the hard disk with the master boot record (MBR) (applicable to MBR disk backups only).
  2. One or more partitions, including:
    1. Boot code.
    2. File system meta data, including service files, file allocation table (FAT), and partition boot record.
    3. File system data, including operating system (system files, registry, drivers), user data and software applications.
  3. System Reserved partition, if any.
  4. EFI system partition, if any (applicable to GPT disk backups only).

What is excluded from disk backups?
To reduce image size and speed up image creation, by default Acronis True Image 2017 only stores the hard disk sectors that contain data.

Acronis True Image 2017 excludes the following files from a disk backup:

  • pagefile.sys
  • hiberfil.sys (a file that keeps RAM contents when the computer goes into hibernation)

You can change this default method by turning on the sector-by-sector mode. In this case, Acronis True Image 2017 copies all hard disk sectors, and not only those that contain data.

Additionally, when you back up your system partition or disk to Acronis Cloud, Acronis True Image excludes the following data:

  • The Temp folders, usually located in:
    • C:WindowsTemp
    • C:UsersAppDataLocalTemp
  • The System Volume Information folder (usually located in C:System Volume Information)
  • The Recycle Bin
  • Web browser temporary data:
    • Temporary Internet files
    • Cookies
    • History
    • Cache
  • .tib files
  • .tmp files
  • .~ files

Recovery:

Recovering your system after a crash:
When your computer fails to boot, it is advisable to at first try to find the cause using the suggestions given in Trying to determine the crash cause. If the crash is caused by corruption of the operating system, use a backup to recover your system. Make the preparations described in Preparing for recovery and then proceed with recovering your system.

 

Recovering files and folders:
You can recover files and folders both from file-level and disk-level backups.

To recover files and folders:

  1. Start Acronis True Image 2017.
  2. On the sidebar, click Backup.
  3. From the backup list, select the backup which contains the files or folders that you want to recover.
  4. On the right panel, click Recover files.
  5. Select backup version (data state on specific date and time).
  6. Select the files and folders that you want to recover, and then click Next.

Acronis True Image 2017

  1. Select a destination on your computer to where you want to recover selected files/folders. You can recover data to its original location or choose a new one, if necessary. To choose a new location, click the Browse button.

    When you choose a new location, the selected items will be recovered by default without recovering the original, absolute path. You may also wish to recover the items with their entire folder hierarchy. In this case select the Keep the original folder structure check box.

  2. When needed, set the options for the recovery process (recovery process priority, file-level security settings, etc.). To set the options, click Options. The options you set here will be applied only to the current recovery operation.
  3. To start the recovery process, click the Recover now button.

    You can stop the recovery by clicking Cancel. Please keep in mind that the aborted recovery may still cause changes in the destination folder.

Recovering files in File Explorer:
To recover files and folders directly from File Explorer:

  1. Double-click the corresponding .tib file, and then browse to the file or folder that you want to recover.
  2. Copy the file or folder to a hard disk.

Note: The copied files lose the “Compressed” and “Encrypted” attribute. If you need to keep these attributes, it is recommended to recover the backup.

 


File Recovery from Acronis Cloud:
Please refer to Acronis Website for instructions.

 


Recovering your system from Acronis Cloud:

Depending on your Internet connection speed, disk recovery from Acronis Cloud may take a long time.

Before you start, we recommend that you complete the preparations described in Preparing for recovery. If you recover your system to a new disk, you do not need to format the new disk, as this will be done in the process of recovery.

Before starting this procedure, please make sure that your computer is connected to the Internet by an Ethernet cable or over Wi-Fi.

To recover a system disk from Acronis Cloud:

  • Arrange the boot order in BIOS so as to make your rescue media device (CD, DVD or USB stick) the first boot device. See Arranging boot order in BIOS.
  • Boot from the rescue media and select Acronis True Image.
  • On the Home screen, select My disks below Recover.
