1746: Acronis Products Do Not Run on Apple Mac

Currently Acronis backup and recovery products neither support Apple Mac OS X nor run under Windows operating systems installed on Apple Mac

This article applies to:

  • Acronis True Image Home product line
  • Acronis Backup & Recovery product line
  • Acronis Disk Director product line
  • Acronis vmProtect product line
  • Acronis Snap Deploy product line


The only Acronis product for Mac environment is Acronis Backup & Recovery for Mac

Other Acronis products do not support Apple Mac OS X.

(!) This includes Windows running via Boot Camp - i.e. if you have Windows installed on a Mac machine, Acronis products will not be able to operate on it.

Standalone versions of Acronis products do not support Apple Mac machines.

Acronis products do not run under any Windows or Linux operating systems when installed on Apple Mac.

There are at least two reasons for this:

  • Apple Mac machines use the EFI bootstrap firmware instead of the BIOS firmware;
  • Apple Mac machines use different partitioning principles.

More information

Acronis products will work in virtual environment created by means of Parallels software. In this case, however, using Acronis products you will be able to manage only the virtual environment, and not the Apple Mac itself. For additional information please visit http://www.parallels.com.
