How To Backup Facebook Using Acronis True Image 2017

How To Backup Facebook Using Acronis True Image 2017

There have been many reported cases of Facebook hacking, with people losing access to their Facebook accounts, sometimes permanently. There are cases in which their Facebook posts and data have been tampered with after being hacked. This is not something anyone wants to experience. However, there is a way to backup Facebook account data using Acronis True Image (Lowest Price), and restore it later!

In this guide, Acronis will teach you how to backup your Facebook account, and then restore it later if your account gets hacked, or you regretted deleting your Facebook account.

 

How To Backup Facebook

These steps require Acronis True Image 2017 (Lowest Price) to be installed. Acronis offers a one-time purchase option, as well as a yearly-subscription licence which includes free upgrades as long as the licence is maintained.

Configuring Acronis True Image 2017 (Lowest Price) to backup Facebook accounts is easy. Your Facebook profile is treated in a similar way to other computer devices.

Step 1 : Go to Resources, click Add, and select Facebook.

What you’ll see next is a standard Facebook login screen asking for your permission to use your Facebook account with Acronis True Image 2017 (Lowest Price).

Step 2 : Enter your login details.

Step 3 : Follow the prompts until you see the familiar “Items to back up” dialog screen.

Step 4 : Tick the “Entire account” box to make sure that all your Facebook content is protected.

Saying that all Facebook content will be backed up is not quite correct. Acronis True Image (Lowest Price) accesses your account via the standard Facebook API, and there are some things that Facebook likes to keep to itself. For example, your Friends list is one of the things that Facebook will not let you to back up.

Step 5 : Set up how often you wish to back up your profile. If you are an active user, you may want to back up your account every day. Otherwise, once every other day or once a week may be sufficient.

If you don’t enable regularly scheduled backups, you can still perform backups manually.

Step 6 : Follow the prompts until you see the “Run Now” button.

Step 7 : Click the “Run Now” button and go and have a drink.

In a few minutes (or hours, depending how big your profile is), your Facebook account will clone itself onto your computer.

 

How To Restore Facebook

Here are the steps to restore your Facebook account. Again, this requires Acronis True Image 2017 (Lowest Price) to be installed.

Step 1 : Open Acronis True Image.

Step 2 : Locate your Facebook backup and click Recover.

Alternatively, you can also browse contents of your backup and download individual photos, video, and other content.

That’s it! You can choose to recover your entire Facebook account, or download only the files you need. It’s that simple.

Acronis True Image Leads Competition In Ransomware Protection

April 24, 2017 — Acronis today announced the latest product comparison report from MRG Effitas, a UK-based independent IT security research company that provides a range of efficacy assessment and assurance services. The report conclusively demonstrated that Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation is the most advanced consumer backup solution as measured by ransomware protection, performance, usability, and feature set.

 

Acronis True Image Leads Competition In Ransomware Protection

MRG Effitas compared Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation, CrashPlan Home 4.8.0, EaseUS TODO Backup Home 10.0, Genie Timeline Home 2016, IDrive 6.5.1.23, Macrium Reflect Home 6.3.1655, NovaBACKUP 18.5 Build 926, and Paragon Backup and Recovery 16. The result was a comprehensive 2017 report entitled “MRG Effitas Comparative Assessment of Data Protection/Backup Products on Protection, Performance, and Usability.”

The report singled out Acronis True Image 2017 as the only solution that protected data against every assessed ransomware threat, thanks to the innovative Acronis Active Protection technology released earlier this year.

“Among all the products we tested, only Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation was able to protect the backups from every ransomware family tested,” states the report’s final conclusion. “The other solutions have basically zero backup protection when it comes to ransomware… Based on the tests, only Acronis’s backup file is protected against the tested ransomware.”

[adrotate banner=”4″]

“Ransomware currently represents a significant risk to end users, businesses and government institutions. Anti-malware technologies can’t provide 100 percent protection against this class of threat. What this test shows is that anyone relying on a backup solution to mitigate against the risks imposed by ransomware if their anti-malware technology fails should not just assume that it will be effective without independent, third party verification.” Chris Pickard, CEO of MRG Effitas.

That’s not the only finding that pointed to the Acronis solution as the optimal choice. According to MRG Effitas, Acronis True Image 2017 also came first in 18 of 24 performance test and when it didn’t win, it finished second.

“These results confirm our internal testing,” said John Zanni, CMO of Acronis. “Acronis True Image is the fastest home backup on the market and the only product that is able to protect itself, and the data, from ransomware. The same anti-ransomware technology is currently being rolled out across the full range of our business products and we’ll continue to invest in R&D, making data protection fast, easy, complete — for everybody.”​

Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation Launched!

January 19, 2017 – Acronis, a global leader in hybrid-cloud data protection and storage, today announced Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation with Acronis Active Protection — active protection against ransomware attacks on user data, Acronis Notary — blockchain-based data certification and verification capabilities — and Acronis ASign — the most consumer-friendly electronic document signing service.

Acronis True Image is the first and only backup solution in the market that introduces Active Protection technology to detect and prevent ransomware attacks in real-time, automatically recover all data from the backup, self-protect backups and the backup application.

According to the FBI, damages from ransomware exceeded $1 billion in 2016 and are growing at an alarming rate, affecting thousands of people every day. This year, cyber-attacks will increasingly threaten data on every personal computer and Acronis delivers the ultimate protection for user data.

Acronis True Image is the fastest and most complete personal backup solution, outperforming the closest competition by more than two times and protecting data on Windows and Mac computers, iOS and Android mobile devices, and Facebook social network accounts. Acronis True Image delivers ultimate data protection for personal and family data using AES 256 encryption and stores it in multiple destinations, including external drives, NAS devices, network shares, and the secure Acronis Cloud.

 

Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation

Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation is the most secure backup on the market due to new unique data protection capabilities:

  • Acronis Active Protection for real-time active protection against ransomware. Acronis Active Protection identifies unusual activity on computers and prevents malicious applications from damaging user data, backups, and backup software. Cutting-edge behavioral heuristics detect and prevent new and known ransomware attacks, making the backup more secure, and reducing a number of times data need to be restored from the backup.
  • Acronis Notary for Blockchain-based data authentication. Acronis Notary offers certification of the content of any file and verification of content modifications against the original version. Unique, “digital file fingerprints” are stored in a distributed, immutable database based on blockchain technology. Blockchain allows users to verify the authenticity of the information at any time. This is especially important for valuable documents such as contracts, medical records, and financial documents.
  • Acronis ASign for blockchain-based document certification. Acronis ASign allows multiple parties to execute and certify a document with a secure and publicly auditable digital signature. Users can protect their backed-up documents, which are verified with Acronis Notary and electronically signed – all within the same reliable backup solution.

Eugene Kaspersky, chairman and CEO of Kaspersky Lab, said: “The world is facing a rising and increasingly dangerous tide of ransomware affecting individuals and businesses alike. Of course, ideally you should never pay criminals if your data is encrypted by ransomware; that’s all very well in theory, but when it’s your family photos or business documents encrypted, the idealism can swiftly go out the window. There are many measures that can be taken to avoid the damage from ransomware, but a high-end Internet security suite and a reliable backup disconnected from the system is still essential to ensure business continuity if the worst does still happen. And I welcome Acronis’s introduction of backup suited to this trend.”

Besides the unique new capabilities, Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation introduces many more improvements and innovative features to secure Acronis’ position as the leading, fastest, and most innovative consumer backup provider:

  • Easy to use, modern interface: A touch-friendly interface across all devices with an easy-to-use web interface for remote data access and management.
  • Additional features for Mac users: Unmounted NAS support for source and backup destinations, wireless backup of mobile devices to Mac computers with local data browsing capabilities; file notarization and electronic signatures via Acronis Notary and Acronis ASign, and support for Mac OS X Sierra.

  • Backup and recovery capabilities for Facebook accounts: Browse and recover a Facebook account data to an existing or new account with data encrypted and stored in the Acronis Cloud.
