LIMITED SALE OF TRUE IMAGE PERPETUAL
Acronis terminated their True Image Perpetual License about a year ago for good reason. This product is updated and supported for only the first year it is released. Users tend to run this product for 3 to 5 years after it is current and safe. Since a recent backup is the best protection against Internet hackers, it is often the first protection that hackers target. Naive users think that they are protected if they take regular backups after the first year. They may find that they only have corrupted backups when they most need a clean restore.
There are three tricks that will let you run an older Perpetual License safely:
1- Uninstall True Image Perpetual from your hard drive after the first year and run all future backups from your bootable CD or thumb drive. Remove your bootable media from your computer between backups. This prevents hackers from messing with your backup program to prevent good backups in the future.
2- Save your backups on an external hard drive. Physically disconnect your external hard drive between backups, to prevent hackers from deleting your backup image files.
3- Make sure you do full backups each week. Without having your True Image do automatic backups, you can easily forget to do your weekly backups.
Follow these three steps and you can safely use True Image Perpetual for several years.
Unfortunately, Acronis is no longer selling True Image 2021 Perpetual licenses and so I cannot get them for you. However, I do have a limited number of extra Licenses of recent True Image Perpetual Licenses that I can offer you. During the past 5 years Acronis has focused on enhancing their subscription products and so their base True Image Perpetual product has seen little changes. All of these products will run on Windows 10, 8/8.1, and 7, unless otherwise noted.
Available in limited quantities are True Image Standard (Perpetual License) for 2020, 2018, 2017, 2015, and 2014.
These are available on a first come, first serve basis at just $19 per license. Once these are sold, there will be no more available. These come as is without technical support from Acronis. They do have available the full True Image User’s Guide and my True Image Starter Guide.
