Tools & Utilities

Acronis Tools & Utilities include Protection tools, Conversion tools, Disk management utilities, Security and privacy utilities, Mounting tools and Backup settings transfer tools.

Protection tools:

  • Acronis Startup Recovery Manager

    Allows you to start Acronis True Image Home 2011 without loading the operating system by pressing F11 at boot time before the operating system starts.

  • Rescue Media Builder

    Allows you to create a bootable rescue media with Acronis products (or their specified components) installed on your computer.

  • Acronis Secure Zone

    Allows you to store your backups in a special safe partition on your disk.

  • Boot Sequence Manager

    Allows you to add Windows 7 system partition images to the booting list and then manage the list.

  • One-Click Backup

    Allows you to protect your computer by immediately backing up your system partition and Master Boot Record (MBR).

Disk management utilities:

  • Clone disk

    Use Clone disk wizard if you need to clone your hard disk drive by copying the partitions to another hard disk.

  • Add new disk

    Add new disk wizard helps you to add a new hard disk drive to your computer. You will be able to prepare the new hard disk drive by creating and formatting new partitions on this hard disk.

System clean-up utilities:

  • Acronis DriveCleanser

    Acronis DriveCleanser utility provides for secure destruction of data on your hard disk.

  • View current state of your disks

    This link opens an integrated Acronis Disk Editor (in read-only mode) to show you the state of your cleaned up disks or partitions. For more information see Disk Editor (read-only mode).

  • File Shredder

    With the File Shredder you can quickly select unnecessary files and folders and destroy them permanently.

  • System Clean-up

    With the System Clean-up utility, you can clean up components (folders, files, registry sections, etc.), related to general system tasks. These Windows components retain evidence of user PC activity, so they too should be thoroughly wiped to maintain confidentiality.

Mounting tools:

  • Mount image

    With this tool you can explore a previously created image. You will be able to assign temporary drive letters to the partition images and easily access these images as ordinary, logical drives.

  • Unmount image

    With this tool you can unmount the temporary logical drives you have created to explore an image.

Conversion tools:

  • Convert Acronis backup to Windows backup

    Use the feature to convert a backup file format from tib to vhd. The vhd files can be used, for example, in Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems for mounting disk images without using Acronis True Image Home 2011.

  • Convert Windows backup to Acronis backup

    Use the feature to convert a backup file format from vhd to tib. The latter is the native file format of Acronis backups.

Backup settings transfer tools:

  • Import backup settings

    Allows you to get backup settings from another computer.

  • Export backup settings

    Allows you to copy the settings of your backups and move them to another computer.
