Acronis True Image 2021

Acronis True Image 2021 has its own virus and malware protection.   Can Malewarebytes and Acronis True Image 2021 operate concurrently on a PC or are there some problems or some items that cannot run together?

You can try it. Personally I use and recommend Macrium Reflect.

I suggest turning off fast startup in Windows 8/10. Then restart.



I would  also recommend creating exclusions between Malwarebytes and Your AV to help prevent any possible conflicts or performance issues.  Please add the items listed in this support article to Your AV 's allow list(s)/trust list(s)/exclusion list(s) particularly for any of its real-time protection components and likewise add Your AV 's program folder(s) (likely located under C:\Program Files and/or C:\Program Files (x86)) to Malwarebytes' Allow List using the method described under the Allow a file or folder section of this support article and do the same for its primary data folder which is likely located under C:\ProgramData (you may need to show hidden files and folders to see it).


Please also refer to this support article which lists several known applications which conflict with the Web Protection in Malwarebytes currently.

Have not tested. I use Acronis True Image but I turn off their antivirus and ransomware protection. They've only been in that business maybe about a couple of years. I have found though that in order to obtain good solid backups and recovery both that I exit out of Malwarebytes and disable Windows Defender until after the image backup is saved. Most of the time I can leave them on but once in a while the backup fails so I take the precaution to disable security temporarily for the backups.

Go ahead and try the Acronis though if you like and if you do run into issues please let us know.

Thank you  @Frankl
