ProsAcronis is a seasoned hard drive and computer backup company with over 12 years experience

ConsSoftware and backup sold separately

Bottom LineAcronis does things the old fashioned way. Instead of bundling backup software and storage together, they are sold separately which adds confusion to their products.
