Phoenix Global Software launch Acronis True Image 8.0 - the complete disk imaging, system disk backup, and bare metal restore for workstations and home PCs.
Acronis True Image 8.0 allows users to create the exact disk image of live workstations for a complete file and system backup, providing a comprehensive and cost-effective protection solution . The disk image file includes amongst others, the computer data including the operating system, programs, software updates and patches, data files, configurations, preference settings, e-mails, pictures and MP3 files. After a fatal system failure, you can restore the entire drive contents to a known, working state or simply replace the lost or corrupted files and folders.
Based on the Exclusive Acronis Drive Snapshot disk imaging technology, Acronis True Image allows you to create an online system backup without the reboot to keep the system productive. The product provides the fastest bare metal restore dramatically reducing and, therefore your IT costs.
New features included in Acronis True Image 8.0 are the ability to exclude paging/hibernate files from the disk image and assign the priority for the disk imaging process to enable the PC to prioritise between disk imaging and other applications. This reduces disk backup time and storage. True Image 8.0 also allows for the verification of a disk image before executing the Restore command and File system checking after restoring an image.

The necessity of having a reliable backup of your system has never been more crucial, said Max Tsypliaev, CEO of Acronis. As corporate, mission-critical data continues to migrate to the desktop and multimedia PCs become more entrenched as essential parts of consumers' leisure time, guaranteeing the accessibility of data and applications is paramount. In addition, he continued, being able to perform a bare-metal recovery of lost corporate data in minutes rather than hours or days delivers benefits directly to the company's bottom line.
Users have become more dependent on their computers, and time is a most precious commodity, said Stephen Lawton, director of marketing. Creating a smaller, more efficient image will significantly increase the speed of creating the image, and eliminating temporary data will significantly decrease the size of the image. Together, he continued, these features, along with more verification processes, further ensure that the images users create will be exact duplicates of the disks. The images will also be created and restored faster.
