Acronis True Image® 11.0 Home Delivers Easy Backup, Fast Recovery and Exceptional Security

Try & Decide; Saving New Files During System Restore Highlight New Features for Home, SOHO Users

BURLINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - September 12, 2007) - Computer users can easily protect their entire computer, including valuable photos, music, videos and work documents, with Acronis True Image® 11.0 Home -- the latest version of Acronis' file and system disk imaging backup and restore software for home and home office users.

Acronis True Image 11.0 Home backs up individual files or an entire computer image to a separate external drive or disc, providing complete protection from viruses, trojans and hardware failures that can cause the catastrophic loss of irreplaceable files and software. In the event of a computer failure, users can quickly and easily restore their data or images to the system when it's back up and running.

The new version adds powerful, yet easy-to-use features including the exclusive Try&Decide feature, which allows users to perform potentially dangerous operations such as software installation or e-mail attachment opening without putting their PC at risk. It does this by creating a secure, temporary workspace that is insulated from the rest of your computer. The user can either commit the changes to their hard disk or simply delete all changes without impacting their hard disk at all.

Added security and privacy functionality includes Acronis Drive Cleanser, which securely erases hard drives before discarding or donating a computer, and File Shredder, which wipes out individual computers files so that they are permanently deleted and unrecoverable.

"Acronis True Image has proven itself again and again as a user's best friend when it comes to protecting their data and operating system," said Mike DiMichele, a Chicago-area consultant who runs a data recovery and remote support service company for end users, as well as the web site Savemybutt.com. "To the average consumer, their digital photos, music and personal financial data are just as important to them as the business records of a corporation. For a family to protect all of their personal digital assets for less the price of dinner for four at the neighborhood diner is incredible."

"As more of our lives move into the digital realm, it is important that we take the appropriate measures to protect those all-important files and programs," said Walter Scott, CEO of Acronis. "We believe that the easier we make it for a user to back up their digital assets, such as music, mail, photos and data, and faster to restore after a failure, the more likely people are to create a regular backup routine. Acronis True Image 11.0 Home is exceptionally powerful, yet easy enough for anyone to use."

Other new features of Acronis True Image 11.0 Home include:

--  Try&Decide -- Allows users to create a temporary, protected space
    where they can do computing operations without putting their hard drive at
    risk due to viruses or malware
