Backing up your data is one thing, but being able to access it is quite another. One of the dangers of storing data backups locally is that it is at risk of loss, damage or theft. If you lose the data on your main hard drive because your computer is stolen, there’s a reasonable chance that your backup will also go missing. This is why backing up to the cloud is a good idea, and Acronis True Image 2013 enables you to do this.
Storing backups in the cloud means that data can be accessed from any device with an internet connection, and this is what the mobile version of the app enables you to do. Automatic synchronization means that if you have files on your computer that you would like to be able to access when you are out and about, you do not need to remember to copy them to a portable drive, they will be ready and waiting for you to download whenever you want.
But the mobile app is about more than accessing the data you have backed up from your computer. You can also use the app to upload files from your mobile so they can be shared with other computers and devices. There is the option of creating a list of favorites for easy access to your most frequently used files. You can choose to automatically sync your photos and videos so the pictures and footage you shot are backed up for you.
But it does not end there. While it is incredibly useful to be able to access files of you own online from different machines, if you have uploaded images to Acronis Cloud, you may well want to make them available for other people to see. To help with this, the app enables you to create public links that you can share with other people. As well as giving you helpful backup options that complement the desktop version of the program, the mobile app is a great tool for sharing your images with friends.
