Acronis says its latest personal backup software launch is 60% faster than its predecessor and more than three times faster than its nearest competitor.

The company says Acronis True Image 2017 combines its unmatched full image local and cloud backup for computers with new wireless backup for mobile devices, and complete backup of Facebook account data.

Serguei Beloussov, co-founder and CEO of Acronis, says personal data is increasingly residing on mobile devices and in social media accounts.

“Acronis True Image 2017 protects all data no matter where it resides and provides the fastest and easiest backup in the industry.

The new offering has more than 50 new features including wireless mobile device backup to Windows computers, remote backup management, incremental Facebook backup and enhance NAS.

There are also additional features, such as search in local and Cloud backups, encryption for archives, comments for backups, Windows Explorer integration, a refreshed touch-friendly user interface on iOS and Android devices, and plenty more.

Robert Tarver, Acronis True Image user since 2015, says it's not about if your computer will crash – it's when.

“I was using another vendor's file and folder backup product when my hard drive crashed,” he says.

“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,” explains Tarver.

“I am very thankful to Acronis for keeping my data safe.
