Get Ready for Windows 7
Planning on moving your system over to Windows 7? Make a full backup image of your system before beginning the upgrade or migration process. If something goes wrong during the installation, simply restore your full system from the backup. Once Windows 7 is up and running, use the full backup image to move files and folders into the new operating system.

Tasks and logs screen shows the log of program operations and scheduled tasks. A calendar provides quick access to the logs (for past dates) or tasks (for future dates). Click to enlarge.

New Powerful Scheduler

Continuous Data Protection
Acronis Nonstop Backup automatically creates incremental backups every five minutes allowing users to roll back their system, files, and folders to any point in time in the past.

Acronis Online Backup Capability
Optional Acronis online storage services are available to automatically backup valuable data or files over the Internet to a secure location.

Boot from Windows 7 image
Windows 7 Ultimate users can boot from a backup image (.tib file) containing a backup of their system partition. This will allow the ability to test a backed up system without actual restoration. If the operating system boots from the .tib file, then it will boot when the need arises for a system recovery. Online backup
Online backup: Keep your data secure by storing it off-site. So the risk of data loss as a result of theft, fire, or other natural disasters is practically eliminated. Click to enlarge.
