Agent for Windows®, included in Acronis Backup Advanced for PC, provides image- and file-based backup for laptops and desktops with individual files and bare-metal recovery support. It is built around Acronis’ state-of-the-art imaging technology and allows you to create image-based backups, or snapshots, of your entire system, including operating system, applications, configuration and data; and recover the image to the same hardware or dissimilar hardware. File-based backup can be used to protect individual folders. The imaging technology analyses supported file systems in order to identify and skip the backup of unused blocks, unnecessary files – like page and hibernation files – and custom files and folders defined by the user.
Agent for Windows seamlessly integrates with other agents for centralised management and reporting, cataloging with search, and disk, tape and cloud support. Backups are stored in a unified format – fully compatible with other agents, opening endless flexibility and migration options. Individual files can be recovered from a disk image. These files are then added to a searchable centralised catalog along with file-based backups. One single-pass backup is enough for both disaster recovery and long-term data recovery.
Intuitive user interface and workflow allows users to restore files, folders and entire systems without administrator assistance or extensive training. Mobile users can recover their machines from USB HDD or Acronis Secure Zone® by pressing F11 and booting into Acronis Startup Recovery Manager.
Recover to Any Hardware
Recover an image to dissimilar hardware or VMs with just a few clicks. Acronis® Universal Restore™ automatically ensures that your system is properly configured and has all the necessary drivers to boot on a new physical or virtual hardware.
Multiple agents for Windows can be managed centrally from Acronis Management Server, along with other agents such as agents for Linux®, VMware vSphere®, or Hyper-V®.
