“It's not if your computer will crash, it’s when and I learned that the hard way,” said Robert Tarver, an Acronis True Image user since 2015. “I was using another vendor’s file and folder backup product when my hard drive crashed. A computer repair technician informed me that only my data files were backed up; not my OS, program files, and settings. To properly back up, he recommended Acronis. It has since saved not only my computer but my wife’s computer as well. I am very thankful to Acronis for keeping my data safe.”
