    Hi, I've got Acronis true image 2018 on a 30-day trial I usually backup to external hard drive but thought I would give the free trial of Acronis cloud storage ago before I do does it takes longer to back-up to cloud storage.

    The initial backup will take an eternity. mine took 5 days. (20mb upload. was much faster with 60mb from cable) However, if you set it up as custom/ incremental on a daily basis, those will be quicker. I have 3 backed up to My passport ultras usb 3.0, and even a full b/u only takes an hour or so, with daily incrementals taking only minutes. (my machines are all approx 500 gb use)
    I believe Acronis is far and away the BEST back up program!

    Also forgot to mention..... retrieving your data from the Acronis Cloud will take 3 times longer than your original upload. (Depending on your internet speed of course)
