Review - Acronis True Image 2018 (Mac)
It has been a long time, but I’m back with my first review of the year - Acronis True Image 2018.
Acronis True Image 2018 (Mac)
I’ve never done a backup before, but I have been helping the Acronis team with several of their giveaways. So I thought, why not review this Acronis True Image 2018 first and see how is. Clearly, it helps getting you backup with a HDD, so I wouldn’t talk about it. I will talk about backing up in the cloud, their backup statistics, Active Protection Against Ransomware, social media backup and mobile backup. This won’t take long, so sit back and enjoy.
Backing up to the cloud
Active Protection Against Ransomware
Social Media Backup
The social media backup like Instagram and Facebook doesn’t work. Firstly, I couldn’t get the backup to work because of some Acronis Cloud that I’m not subscribed and have to jump hoops for the technical support which they said to give them 7 different reports with both and upload it to this ftp server. So after I got a good technical support person to help me get everything working (which my account doesn’t seem to be connected to Acronis Cloud), the social media backup still doesn’t work.
Instagram doesn’t work for backing up, and maybe because I have 5,000 over pictures on Instagram. My Facebook doesn’t connect with an error “TOL: Failed to execute the command. The command runs task of type ‘fbTokenExchange’“. Oh well, time to quit making it work.
There is good, there is bad. Acronis True Image 2018 is one of them. Backing up and restoring my macOS is a breeze. However, when gets to Social Media Backup and Mobile Backup, it’s fails.
Total Score: 3⁄5
Pros: Backup is important, so do it.
Cons: Forget about backing up your social media and mobile.
