General Discussion / Acronis True Image 2016 19.0 Build 6559
« Last post by Alan Raul on April 20, 2016, 10:08:33 AM »
Acronis has updated True Image 2016 to build 6559.

Here are the list of changes.

A "new feature" included in the latest build important to me is:
NVMe drives and eMMC drives are supported in both the normal and standalone (bootable media) versions of Acronis True Image.

Acronis True Image 2016 web help.

As a reminder... Create new restoration media and check that you can access your backup TIB files.

Hi Dick,

Thanks for the feedback.  Like you, I am wary of relying on the Cloud for backup of critical files.  I prefer to do my own backups on local media that I choose and control.
Nonetheless, I recently uploaded all of my digital photos to Amazon Cloud Drive.  At 35.2 Gb, this took almost 30 hours.  Almost all of the images are also on my web site and in several locations off-line. 

I used Amazon Cloud Drive so that future images that I take on my Smart Phone will be uploaded automatically. 
Since I am a member of Amazon Prime, my $99/yr membership gives me unlimited photo storage at no additional charge.

And again on Monday!  Today, Tuesday April 19 it almost made it again, but cooled off some.  Tonight is very, very muggy! If you live in SLO hope you looked at the sky just before 8:00 P.M. and saw the very strange striated cloud formations.  Wish I thought to take a picture!

Thank you for the information, Ralph.  I, too, am a recent Prime member, and am still learning about the options included.  So far, the only thing I don't like, is the number of items that I bought or considered that did not qualify for Prime free shipping.  They are well labeled, but its still frustrating.

Wish I could help, but even though I have a couple of free clouds, I don't use them.  I don't like them, and I don't believe they are as safe as separate backups.

I'm sure someone has some methods of doing this that work for them.  Please post a reply and help the rest of us!

Hello All,

I'm researching a possible SLO Bytes Second Session presentation that compares different cloud storage services.  I'm interested in learning what you use and what you think of that choice.  Please reply to this thread with your commentary or e-mail me directly at

So far, I'm considering the following

Amazon Cloud Drive
Apple iCloud
Google Drive
Microsoft OneDrive
I look forward to your responses.

General Discussion / Amazon Prime Benefits

Hello All,

I frequently purchase items on-line.  For that reason, I signed up for Amazon Prime.  The $99 annual membership gives me free 2 day shipping on merchandise purchased from Amazon Prime web sites.  The subscription also allows to view movies via Amazon Prime Video,  a worthy Netflix competitor.

Today, I discovered an additional benefit - free unlimited photo storage on Amazon Cloud Drive.  (This service has been around for a while but I just learned of it.)  Like many other cloud services, it allows you to sync your photos from smart phones, computers, and tablets to a common on-line location.  In a test of free unlimited on-line storage, I am currently uploading 43 Gb of photos.

For me the $99/yr Amazon Prime subscription is well worth it.

As our numbers of USBs become larger, and with a variety of sizes and shapes, has anyone discovered a good way to Label them, and a good method of Storage for storing and locating them?  ???
