  • This is a really super function, I use acronis by 5-6ani and I can say 100% is the best backup program, I never had any problems.
    I am currently unpacking the 2016 version but from this article it seems that the 2018 version comes with an extremely useful feature, at least my case where I work with a few thousand documents, a rescue software must also resign.
    With acronis full backups every 1-2 month and my data is securely secured even by the firewall, of course backup is not saved on the same computer, external hdd and / or online.
    Thank you stealthsettings for keeping us informed especially about security articles.
    A wonderful day I want you.

    • Yes, it's really a very useful solution. It would be better to have more backup solution developers and companies and even home users understand that data is not safe if they are stored on a single hdd :)

  • Companies think they understood this or at least the vast majority of them, as for home users here it takes a long time to understand this and not because it does not bring their minds, but simply because of disinterest, the vast majority go on the premise "just no even happen to me, "but when it happens ... you have to pull it.
    I admit, I found myself in the example above and it took months to recover some of the lost data, learning better minds that I do not think there is any bite and yogurt now, as they say .
    So, those who are reading this article will not go away with the saying "just will not happen to me", as long as, more recently, almost any device is connected to the internet, you are vulnerable.
    To hear only good things.
