10 Tips to Protect Your Business from Ransomware

Did you know that ransomware is the most widespread, destructive malware in the world today? It accounts for 39% of all security breaches, with ransomware gangsters projected to make $11.5B in profits from online extortion by 2019.

Artificial Intelligence
We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Zero Downtime How to prioritize workloads during total downtime? Consider:
- The order in which workloads should be brought up
- Which workloads should have redundancy and failover
- Which workloads can wait or should be stopped to free resource capacity

I wish to cancel a backup which appears to be running without my starting it.
The PC is running windows 7 Professional 64 bit

I am using Acronis Backup version 12 which is described when I click the "About" button as follows:

Web console service: v.12.0.2607

Backup management server: v.12.0.3622

Backup management console: v.12.0.6081

When I launch backup Exec in Microsoft explorer using Http://localhost:9877/

And observe the Status it indicates that a backup is being performed with 52% complete.

I normally manually start backups and wish to start another backup without waiting for this backup to complete.

How can I cancel the backup that is running (or any backup that is running).
Powerring down the PC and poering up again makes no difference, even with the MMS service stopped (Acronis Managed Machine Service)

There's a request for "Change runbook" that documents/records changes from Day 1
so that in the event of bad changes (malicious or inadvertent ones) being introduced
over along the line of changes, we can rebuild a server/system back selectively,
dropping the "bad" change so that we can bring up the system to a "clean" slate.

Was told it's not "Change Control" nor CRs that we are looking at here.

I've suggested that a 'bare metal' backup be done with incremental backups (think
EMC has one such product) but this is not what the team requires.

Any document, tools or method are much appreciated.

Software recommendation for Bare Metal Restore of Dissimilar Hardware.  I have an older Asus VivoBook S500C running current version of Windows 10.  I would like to purchase a new laptop and do an image restore without starting from scratch reinstalling individual software packages.

Acronis True Image 2019 just released!

Create a reliable backup. Make sure you always have dependable copies of your data so you can restore your entire system or individual files.

Have a pc running with one hard disk. What is the good solution to prevent data loss? NAS / additional hard disk to running raid? any other good solution?

Bagaudin - thanks for replying! This was with the 2015 version I purchased for work a while back. With previous versions we used to maintain a bank of system images and all that - for tech support - and with this new one because of the licensing it was limiting us to one machine. I also upgraded from a HD to an SSD and the process of making the image and restoring kept throwing errors even though both drives were fine. I eventually just quit using it and haven't in a couple of years.

Thanks for the detailed feedback, William!

I dearly hope that if (when) you consider our products again - you'll let me or any other Acronis vendor expert know.

The Lenovo T470 has mSATA drive; I tried to use the above software for Lenovo T470, but did not work.

Question: Is there a free software for mSATA drive monitor please.

Thanks,

Has anyone used Acronis Server Backup 12.5 (or any server backup) to a AWS S3 cloud storage? Does AWS accept FTP or SFTP connections to S3 Storage?
It seems their cloud storage is priced well. $276/yr for a TB. Any comments to cloud storage in general for backups?

We are deploying Windows 10 workstations using True Image.  I want to set browser default to IE, and PDF default to adobe.  
The 2 methods I researched are below.  In your opinion, should I build the defaults into the image, or just use GPO?  
Also,  if I choose to build the defaults into the image, will the OSD method work with Acronis True Image?  Or will I have to implement this a different way?

We have a master image created using Acronis. It contains Win10, MS Office, a few browsers and applications installed on it. Now, we want to bring in that image into SCCM which we will be using from now on instead of Acronis. My question is should we sysprep that image even though it will be push onto the same PC hardware/model ? how would you guys go about this? Any input will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Hi,

I am replacing an internal HD with an SSD as the current mechanical drive is beginning to fail.  The current disk is dynamic so I cannot clone it using the provided software.  Easiest thing that I think I can do is backup the current drive using Acronis and restore to new disk.  How would I then make the new drive bootable, so it could take over from the old drive?

The Five Tenets of the Most Secure Backup

The Five Tenets of the Most Secure Backup

Data loss can hit a business in any number of ways. In reality, companies should expect to lose data at some point. The challenge is having a plan to recover from such an event.

I have a new laptop with an unformatted SSD. I have a Acronis TIB Windows 10 image I want to load on the laptop.  How do I accomplish this?  Do I simply load it on a USB, and boot to USB?

Could someone give me the basic rundown on how to create a Acronis Image, and then load it on a new workstation?

Create a W10 install medium. Running into a User Permission problem
The eventual objective is to recover my W10 system.
I am following these instructions though they mention W7 or W8 not 10.
I am running on a W10 machine.
https://www.howtogeek.com/135005/how-to-use-a-windows-installer-disc-to-back-up-your-files-when-your-computer-wont-boot/


Use the media creation tool to download Windows.
https://www.techspot.com/downloads/6734-windows-10-installation-tool.html

I have downloaded the file: MediaCreationTool
I cannot run it because I do not know what user name and password to put.
It says AcronisAgent User.

I do not need Acronis so I think I could remove this user. It does not appear in the Configuration.
There is a Microsoft account in the form of an email address.
Putting this in for MediaCreationTool  does not work.
At some point a runtime broker error is shown.


I would be grateful if someone could help me proceed.
