This online backup service offers local storage and cloud storage capabilities. The files are encrypted in Advanced Encryption Standard with 256-bit keys or AES-256. It is the industry standard for data security. You can also create your own local encryption key. It is a non-recoverable key that even Acronis developers do not have access to. What they do collect are your contact and payment information and service logs and device information.
Acronis uses this to contact you in case of emergencies as well as tailor its services to you.The installer is a hefty 500MB so it may take time to install. Once you’ve logged into your account, you can begin setting up your backup. By default, Acronis will store your entire hard drive. You can opt to select folders or files you want to store.
You will also have to dictate the file destination. You can choose between the Acronis Cloud or your local folder. Once you have selected both source and target, you simply click the Back Up Now button. You can also set an automated backup schedule. It can be on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. If you are handling highly classified or sensitive files, there is also a Nonstop Backup option.
Top-notch online backup
Acronis delivers solid storage capabilities in an intuitive interface. Not many backup storage programs are able to store an entire optical disc by default nor do they offer storage plans by the gigabyte. Although the program itself can eat up your internal hard drive, it’s worth the installation time as you will notice the speed of its backups and the software’s native ransomware protection and secure signing functions.
