For a general description of Acronis Nonstop Backup, please see Acronis True Image Home 2011: Nonstop Backup.

Here is how Acronis Nonstop Backup in Acronis True Image Home 2011 works:

If the scenario involves a reboot, which means that the CDP driver is off until the system boots, the whole procedure starts again from Step 1. This does not mean, however, that a new backup is kept in the storage - it is consolidated with the existing one, which saves space.

Backups older than 24 hours are automatically consolidated in such a way that Acronis True Image Home will keep daily backups for the last 30 days and weekly backups until all Nonstop Backup storage space is used. The consolidation will be performed every day between midnight and 01:00 AM. The first consolidation will take place after the Nonstop Backup works not less than 24 hours. If you turn off the Nonstop Backup for some time, the consolidation will start after you turn it on again.
