Free is free but keep in mind: Acronis does NOT support any cloud storage except their own. So if you plan on storing your backups to Amazon Glacier or Google Coldline, for example, this is worthless to you.

damn software rebates are the perfect scam. even if only 30% of those people don't cash the rebate or the rebate fails due to some bullshit rule, they still dont lose anything. it's just software. those people werent going to buy it anyway. it's like they just got free money.

This is false. Incremental backups do backup the "changed" or modified files, but on a schedule. Not real time as was asked.

CDP or Continuous Data Protection is the type of backup that retains every version of every file as soon as it's changed/modified/saved.

I've gotten at least three Acronis rebates in the past year or two. Haven't missed one yet.

Damn those reviews make this look scary...
I have been hearing a lot about them running this into the ground.
Older versions were great, but haven't seen much good buzz for the new versions.

Does this version also do "real time" backups, i.e. what you're working on right now or just finished, so it gets backed up every time you save a new version of files without having to wait until the next regular backup, by which time your drive could potentially crash, get destroyed or stolen, etc.?

Btw what's the formal name for this sort of backup?

It's called incremental backups. I have used ShadowProtect Desktop for years for both full and incremental backups. Expensive but you get what you pay for.

The only backup product I've ever used that couldn't restore a backup it'd made. Completely hosed me when I made a backup of my girlfriends daughters computer, wiped it and reinstalled windows, then went to restore some of her files.

Never used it again after that. I used macrium reflect free with zero problems since then.

These Acronis rebates are extremely slow. Still waiting on one from April.

Yep, and thanks for the answer. I've been doing actual incremental backups for decades and know how they work. In theory you could do this in real time, but that's a different matter.

Do you know if this version of Acronis does CDP? My personal backup needs are reasonably well-served by Windows Backup, but I do worry about data losses between daily incremental backups, due to drive crashes or user error, or if I simply want to revert to an earlier version of a file I created or modified that day (which is basically de facto automatic versioning).
