Acronis is a trusted name in backup for many businesses but I do not know many people that use it at home. That could change soon with Acronis True Image Home 2010. I will not lie to you, Acronis True Image Home 2010 is a fantastic local backup solution! I have given the free trial a try and I am seriously considering changing from my current local backup solution to Acronis True Image Home 2010. You can now include online backup with Acronis True Image Home 2010. Online backup is an add on and allows users to backup their data online. Prices start at $4.95 per month or $49.95 per year for 25gb. Additional space is available in 5gb blocks at $0.79 per month or $9.49 per year. Price wise it is a little more expensive that some other online backup services, but if you want a fantastic local backup solution and online backup then take a serious look at Acronis True Image Home.
