Acronis has launched True Image Home 2010. The backup and recovery software now offers a Nonstop Backup feature.

The Nonstop Backup implements automatic incremental backups every five minutes. These are stored for 30 days, ensuring users can revert back to any point they wish.

The software now also offers users the option to back up to the web as well as to an external device. Users get a 90-day trial of Acronis Online Backup with 2GB of online space. If they decide to continue with the online service, they will be charged £3.95 per month for 25GB of online space. More space can also be purchased if required.

Acronis says the software is ideal for PC users upgrading to Microsoft's latest OS Windows 7. The software developer says the software can be used to capture a full backup image before migrating to the new OS so that if necessary, the entire PC including the operating system, applications, updates and files can be recovered.

"With Acronis True Image Home 2010 in place, users can have assurance that their computer is fully protected. Between disk imaging, file backup, local or online backup, and non-stop backup protection, Acronis True Image Home 2010 sets the standard for consumer PC disaster recovery in an affordable and easy-to-use solution," said Acronis' Laurent Dedenis.

Acronis True Image Home 2010 costs £39.95 and is available from Acronis.
