A good acronis startup manager to recover files if you are not able to login to your windows.
Uses more hard drive space as it completely backups all of the files. When running multiple OS on a single PC, it requires more hard drive space.

How it works:
Acronis True Image Home 10.0 is a good disk imaging backup software that lets its users to create an image of hard drive, including the OS, applications, user settings, and all other data. If PC fails to boot after a crash, Acronis allows us to revive it to a working state without reinstalling windows. Data deleted from the hard drives accidentally can also be recovered by using it.

Some good features:
It is not just any other imaging backup solution. In addition to a complete system restore, it can restore individual files and folders in a matter of minutes.
It has a unique feature that is not available in other backup softwares like Norton that it provides support of almost any storage device - local hard drives, network drives and removable media drives, as well as CD-R/RW, DVD-R/RW, magneto-optical, and Iomega Zip and Jaz drives.
It creates Acronis Secure Zone on the hard drive as a special partition where images can be saved. This is completely invisible to the operating system and all applications.
You can choose a backup mode from full incremental and differential.
Backup to FTP is another convenient feature for travelers, since they can access their backup archives from any location where an Internet connection is available.

Bad feature:
We can not say it as a bad feature. But for them who uses a single copy of a OS for a whole network, it copies all the settings from local machine including SID. So we can not use it in a Windows 2003 Server network which requires a unique SID for each PC in a network.

Accept this it is a good product for recovering your PC after crash.


If you doesn't own a installation media for your OS then use it to recover your windows.
