I can't see where it actually says you receive one year of each of the other packages and the full/premium editions, or subscription in the case of the VPN.
I worry it is just a download of the free versions anyone can try.
You're worrying needlessly: If you follow the link to start an order you'll see each item with its name eg "....Premium" [ie non-freeware edition] and each listed with "1 PC, 1 Year".

Kaspersky Internet Security doesn't have an English free version, CCleaner Professional Plus is not the free version and neither are CyberGhost Premium and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium. The Premiums and Pros are the full paid versions which will run out after 1 year.

I was partially tempted by this when I got the email yesterday, then I realised I have no use for the four extra bits of software in the bundle. Still a good price if you specifically want all 5.

I have a 500GB hard drive in my laptop, I would like to put a 2TB 2.5 inch hard drive into my laptop. So I clone the 500Gb hard drive then copy it onto the 2TB hard drive then just swap the hard drives is that it? Please help
You probably need a USB to SATA adapter or caddy like this:http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=USB+to+Satahttp://www.amazon.co.uk/Sata-Hard-Drive-Caddy-Enclosure/dp/B003MVVPZI/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1440765243&sr=8-2&keywords=USB+to+Sata+caddy
This will allow you to communicate with the 2nd disk
Then run the disk copy option of this free software to clone it:http://www.partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html
You can opt to do this using the bootable CD/USB version if you preferhttp://www.partitionwizard.com/partition-wizard-bootable-cd.html
It will offer you 3 options:
1] Increase the partitions to match the new disk size
2] Keep partitions at current size
3] Lowest possible partition sizes
Pick option 1] or 2]
Option 1] is quicker, but any system partitions or restore partitions will also be made larger.
Option 2] Allows you to specify that only main partition gets resized with the remaining space after the copy is complete. You have to do this afterwards using the partition resize option.

Acronis lost my business when they made you pay for an upgrade from 2013 to 2014, just to make it work with Windows 8.1
So I moved to using Macrium Reflect. Free version does what I need it to really.
Good price if you must use Acronis though.


I prefer the functionality and ease of Macrium, when compared to Acronis. Free is a bonus!

I still use the 2010 version. Burnt onto dvd just bootup pc and runs.

Love the backup / restore via samba. I just go straight to my nas.

Does 2016 even add anything of value ?
Besides there being other free options this is a great deal for 5 PC's Acronis, heat from me.

Just use this instead.. I have been using this for over a year now.. Best a quickest so far.. Free too

http://www.backup-utility.com/download.html

Very good software although I do not think the AOMEI Backupper works for installing in a changed hardware system but Acronis does have some software to do that.

I have been using the AOMEI for several months and think it is simple to use and efficient. I did have to rely on a backup once when Windows went bad and the backup got everthing up and running again. It was an older backup as I hadn't backed up nearer to when the crash occurred so my fault but at least it was straightforward to get the backed up data up and running again.
Nice find OP worked for me, PayPal was :-

From amount £21.81 GBP
To amount 1,620.00 RUB
Exchange rate: 1 GBP = 74.3077RUB

I think that most free imaging programs do what most people would want.

Would not touch Acronis with a barge pole based on previous experience of products and support.

For me, if you want to pay for something, go for Easeus Todo Workstation or home depending on what features you want.

used acronis too and the one time i actually needed to do a full restore, it failed with a corrupt archive despite a successful backup and verification of the archive

never again!
go for Easeus Todo Workstation
Easeus Todo Workstation is just a backup solution (and not a very good one as it does do single instance storage backup.) so cannot be compared with Acronis which is primarily a disk imaging application
or serial key at scan for £15

It will be if more people will sign up. Keep them coming ;)
Price is not £20 as listed.
Macrium Reflect Free Edition, Paragon Backup and Recovery (Advanced) Free, Drive Image XML, PING (PartImage Is Not Ghost).

All free and essentially do they same job.

I will never go near an Acronis product again.

Un-installing can be rather tricky with a few of their products and on more than one occasion has ended up screwing Windows after using trial version.

Support isn't that good either. They do respond but make you go through unnecessary hoops to identify issues that they themselves are not aware of.
Ive just used this to image a fresh Windows install with only the programs I need, fully updated, defragmented and virus scanned so that in the future when I want a clean install again I can do it in 10mins instead of a whole day of reinstalling and downloading a million updates. Lovely program
I use the 2009 version for windows 7 and it is very effective. Well worth it!

You can also use it to copy all the data from one hard drive to another so its handy for that too :)

Heat for effort AND for the word FAFF lol
Acronis came back to me and said that their offer was either 50% off using the game OR a free plus pack. So it must be a glitch. Well done on spotting this and successfully getting it.

They say without an order number from someone who did it they cannot honor it. Can you you post your order number ?

EDIT - I didn't explain the steps taken or anything like that, I just said that I understood that I was buying 2012 and the plus pack.

This deal still works as of today 05 March 2012. I had been using the 2012 trial and this all worked ok for me on Windows 7 X64, not had any problems.
Great deal. Version 2010 and 2011 had a bsod crash bug. But 2012 is now a fully fixed version. You can also pick up a free version of the 2009 version if you have a seagate or western digital hard drive. Type it in google and you will see links to the respective sites. 2009 was great.

So effectively you can get the free version then get this upgrade. Now that's a bargain!
I wonder if 2012 is any good? - I've read 2011 was bad compared to 2010 which I use.

For anyone who has never used ghosting/cloning backup software and regularly rebuild their computers then it's time you tried out their free trial.

EaseUS do a great, easy to use, clear, simple version of this but for free.

http://www.todo-backup.com/products/home/free-backup-software.htm

Great program, use it on the companies PC's as well as for a lot of customers.


It depends whether you need the additional features in Acronis such as being able to mount the backup images and browse them (allowing you to then drag and drop specific files from the backup back into your live system for example), or the online storage that comes with the product.

Does GFI Backup allow you to make a bootable DVD/CD to imagine a complete partition? As feature list makes looks more like a Windows program for folder backup.

It doesnt allow you to create a bootable backup disc, this is something I never used Acronis for, so for me wasnt important, I am happy to ensure I have my critical data as rebuilding a pc isnt a problem for me.

It is much better than the Windows backup as you can restore single files etc... I use it to backup only data, photos, music etc... I am not worried about programs or settings.

It's $29.95 a year.

It's more worthwhile paying a one off fee for an external hard drive. Should cost around £30 for 250gb


And where do you plan to keep this external hard drive?
What do you do if this external hard drive fail?

There's a value in managed off-site backup. Not necessarily worthwhile for everybody but they fill a different market need than a single on-site external hard drive.

I think you're really scraping the bottom of a very deep hole you've dug for yourself,


What deep hole? I don't know what you are talking about, and I don't know where I have been proven wrong, (or right) for that matter.

True Image has a feature I wasn't initially aware of, and I pointed out a few reasons for wanting to use it this way. I now realise it can be used this way, problem sorted, no issues. Thank you for the link, although seeing I had made a boot disk in the first place by installing it, I had got around that anyway, and ahve been using it for several weeks now without any problems at all. My only slight grouse is why it wasn't downloadable in the ISO form in the first place from the front page of the Acronis True Image site, it would have been a bit more convenient for me, but that's minor.

It's a perfectly good piece of software, and this deal is fine.
nihcaj;7295346
Hardly bizarre - there are plenty of reasons - as it installs two services and two startup items which run every time you turn your PC on, which if you only want to create an image of the original installed OS, then not use it again until you need to restore, it saves bootup time, and load on the PC memory the rest of the time - especially significant on a Netbook, which tend to be underpowered at best.


I think you're really scraping the bottom of a very deep hole you've dug for yourself, Acronis isn't at all difficult to reconfigure to run as you want and I've had no performance related problems running the software on ULV machines - the software basically doesn't do anything at all unless I need it to. I keep the software loaded on a single machine which I use to verify the images I've taken of others, most imaging software offers better management tools in the installed version than the bootable media including Ghost.

I like the way after arguing this for several pages and being proved completely wrong, you sidestepped the fact entirely that I provided the details on how to download the iso and chose to try and argue another point. It's very poor fom to post the wrong information on a forum under the pretence of giving advice to assist others in a purchase and then refuse to back down when shown to be incorrect.

However, in the unlikely event for some bizarre reason you don't want to ever install the software Acronis do provide a bootable ISO on verification of your serial number, see the KB here:

If you have a machine which you don't use to keep personal data on (such as a laptop or netbook, or a secondary machine), and you keep that on a main machine instead (as I do) then you don't need the incremental backup options on that machine, so you might as well not bother taking the time to install it.
I use Ghost for this purpose on 2 machines, although had I realised True image did offer this facility originally, then I might well have just used True Image for all, although I like the belt and braces approach of using both.

Clearly you are not as familiar with it as you think you are!

If you can explain to me how you create an image of a hard disk partition with Acronis True Image from the downloadable version (ie. Trial version with or without serial number), WITHOUT INSTALLING it first and making a boot disk from that point, (other than by using a boot disk from another source, or using the it from a different machine), then please do, I am all ears.

Naturally once you have the bootable disk image, you can boot from that, however it does not have the luxury of that option as it arrives in download form - it does not come as an .ISO but as an installable .exe file so you must install it first in that case.


Acronis provide an exe by default which then allows to create the rescue media and fairly extensive management options (including conveniently mount the image as a drive letter) which will mean most people will install this on one machine. However, in the unlikely event for some bizarre reason you don't want to ever install the software Acronis do provide a bootable ISO on verification of your serial number, see the KB here:

This version offers verbose output and extended diagnostics in case of difficulty using the standard bootable software.

Alternatively Amazon offer the CD retail version at 20 pounds as well, I believe this may offer a bootable version although as I don't see the problem in using the downloadable one and the tools available I haven't tested this.

Pass, seems odd that it doesn't recognise either of them.



I have crucial memmory. The crucial memmory site scan doesnt recognise it. IT is a wierd world... :thumbsup:

Never thought about that - however, these are IDE drives, and not in a RAID configuration.

If they are hidden within a raid set it might fail to recognise them as Seagate/Maxtor.

This is very good software and I've found their support is excellent - I bought the Trueimage 11/Disk Director deal here for 25 pounds but hit trouble trying to image a Studio Hybrid as when booting the rescue media it just froze. I opened a live chat system with Acronis who immediately offered me a coupl of test debug iso's which didn't work so they gave me a free upgrade to the newest Acronis software which did work. I like Acronis anyway as I've found it user friendly with plenty of options to tailor it as you want and I've had no problems taking or restoring images.

It's also not guaranteed to work either - I have a Seagate and a Maxtor drive in my PC, and it claims I don't.
