Acronis adds syncing to backup products

Acronis have released the latest version of their consumer backup software, True Image Home 2012, introducing a synchronisation tool to give users easy access to their digital lives.

The company says this is the first time synchronisation technology has been found in disk imaging products, a move ‘that promises to shake up the market’.
According to Karl Sice, general manager, Pacificf for Acronis, the new software goes beyond traditional backup products.
“People have spent years saving their files to flash drives or emailing themselves the latest version of their documents,” Sice says, “and it’s messy and ineffective.
“Our latest developments will enable home users to take that extra leap, from hoping you have the latest version to knowing you do.”
Users can sync their files across PC, USB and NAS, and Acronis’ cloud offering, True Image Online.
The Acronis brand was picked up here by Ingram Micro last week.
