The answer is YES. The free set up assistance and the remote installation makes the installation easy and hassle free, even for the beginners. The support for all windows operating system including the old Windows XP, allows your migration to new OS with confidence.

The support forum, email, live chat are some of the widely used options to clear the concerns that arise while using this software. In addition to these, the customers can also talk with the company representatives by availing the telephone service offered by the company. The company website is filled with tons of information about the use of NovaStor backup solutions. The resources include tutorials, knowledgebase, articles and much more.
Novastor or Acronis?
The Novaback and True Image, both have a set of excellent and powerful tools that allow the user to backup the data to the cloud or any desired location to keep it safe. However, the facility to keep the data free from ransomware is available only with Acronis True Image. Novabackup is fast and reliable than any of its competitor. The sensibly and intelligently designed GUI makes it an apt choice of both data backup experts and beginners.
How really popular is Novabackup?
When it comes to analyzing the software popularity I like to use Google Trends as you can check any keyword interest over time based on real users experience. Here is a screenshot of the search term ‘Novastor” popularity for the past 5 years.
Well as you can see starting from 2016 the term has started to lose the popularity in google search among users requests, but it still remain some interest. What I like about Google Trends is that you can compare several keywords, eg. competitive software. So let’s try “Acronis” and “Novastor”
The red line goes for “Acronis” so there are no comments here but as you can see Acronis also is losing the popularity from year to year.
Although there are many more popular backup solutions on the market, I am sure that Novabaskup will find its user. I can say for sure that there is no an “ideal” backup/recovery software which will suit for everybody as every solution has its own pros and cons. When I tested Novabackup Professional I found it fast, straightforward, easy to install, feature-filled and robust imaging backup and recovery solution that can suit for a wide range of users.
