Acronis True Image for Mac is a new, multi-platform edition of the trusted backup tool.

It brings faster disk imaging technologies, supports data migration and the ability to backup virtual machines.
Key features include:

Although navigating around Acronis True Image for Mac is an easy and intuitive task, there are a number of small hiccups that need to be ironed out with this application. Not least of which is the application's failed ability to work with all file systems. You can only work with certain ones, e.g. Mac OS Extended format (case-insensitive), FAT32, exFAT, and NTFS (read-only). It also struggles with generating backup images on Macs that have Bootcamp installed, or for that matter use Fusion Drive or File Vault 2. That having been said, the whole backup process is very simple to follow; just specify the source and destination location for the backup and Acronis True Image for Mac will take care of the rest.
As you would expect from a firm that has been making backup solutions for well over a decade, Acronis has hit the mark again with the latest edition of their renowned backup application, even with the file system flaw.
With Acronis True Image you can protect your Mac's data should anything unfortunate happen. With a full system backup in place, you can keep all your data safe even if your computer is lost, stolen or damaged. You can backup locally or remotely to the cloud, and then access your data anytime and from anywhere you need.
