Acronis does this regularly as a promotion to hook you on their product and get you to upgrade for more convenience later. I don’t think this version runs on Vista, though? Current offer is at Acronis True Image 8.0 Free Genuine License and Download | Megaleecher.Net. Disk imaging can be an important part of maintaining security. It creates a backup of your entire disk, so if you make a mistake and get infected you can go back to the last known good configuration easily. Or if you just plain hose your system with one of the Comodo quirks while beta testing or otherwise. (:CLP)
What if I’m not a member of PC pro magazine? I can’t have it ?
Sure you can; just fill out the form. See Acronis TI 8 Personal - Free Giveaway - Software | DSLReports Forums for more information.
Thanks for the info. I’m gonna get it ^^ Do you think it will work on vista as well ? I mean creating vista images?
I don’t think this version supports Vista-you can check their forum Acronis True Image Product Line | Wilders Security Forums . I use v10.
It doesn’t have the facility to clone a disk. Just installed it and that bit is missing. I not gruntled!
Best to use in conjunction with GParted Live CD. Now we have freeware programs to create images from partitions and re-partition drives, convert file systems, resize drives etc.
i’d used ATI 10 without a prob. But wth is goin on with this 8 free version? Startup recovery couldn’t run; my 10 GB secure zone couldn’t be restored by any means, any programs ?!?
I’m now having less 10 GB disk space than it actually is. Have to wait until next time I reinstall XP…
