Cloud storage offerings abound, but they typically focus on protecting a single location on the storage drive, with no bare metal restore capability. For its part, Acronis True Image is full-featured data backup software that can make a full disk image of an entire system, including documents, configuration data and installed applications.
It supports a variety of storage targets, including removable hard drive, optical media drive, USB storage, NAS appliances or even the company's own cloud storage solution. To save time and storage space, the app supports both incremental and differential backups after the first full-system backup.
