No they are free forever, I will change the title to make easier to understand. Each program is free forever when you download and install it, then you get a link from the program and you register it, then you get a license key and unlock the program. The date that is under each program is how long that program will be available for free download.
Justin, I don’t give a darn if you got this stuff from anywhere, it was a life saver, and 3 of these are EXACTLY what I have been looking for for the last 2 weeks!! AWESOME! I was almost hospitalized from a flu over the last week and a half and this is making me feel better already!! Can’t tell i’m happy huh?
I googled for quite some time and didn’t find it either. It may have been like the deals above, for only limited time and now changed. Most sites that host their software will change it as well and the freebie will no longer be there. I was “hoping” to find it myself.
Nice! I can’t believe I missed this post. I wish I got to the party on time. But wait. It’s OK to be fashionable late. I tried to get the license code and download for Registry Mechanic 5.0 just now and it still works!!
Boy, Exact Image and Drive Copy sure do remind me of some old products by PowerQuest (I think that’s the right name). I think theirs were named Drive Copy and Drive Image (not 100% sure tho). Capabilities of what the apps do seems to be pretty much the same, tho. They were bought out by Symantec, tho, and run over by the Ghost.
I shall grab these posthast. Hopefully I don’t miss Exact Image’s deadline, by the time I get home. That would be
Little Mac, Paragon Exact Image is great, Drive copy >humbug. It won’t recognize the back up. Last night my pc crashed “again” and I fumbled around trying to get drive image to work, it said it did and when I rebooted it said “NO OS” found. Nice huh? So I used my Paragon disk for Exact Image and it restored from the capsule to a fresh install that I backed up with Paragon, 10 minutes flat, all my updates, programs etc…IT’s AWESOME. Just a bit of info for you. BUT you should make a floppy\cd\or dvd to run off if the PC crashes, saved my hide!
TNX, Paul, I appreciate the note. Looks like Exact Image does more anyway; that “capsule” thing is cool. And yes, a bootable is necessary! I started doing that when a virus flamed me and made me mad. I ended up having to reformat, fdisk, and start all over, doing updates over 28K modem. Megs and megs. Ugh! (:AGY) (obviously this was years ago…). So I started imaging the drive at known clean points on a regular basis to avoid all of that junk. I figured I might have to reload some, but not all updates and whatnot.
That’s the way it was with the PQ app, as well. It didn’t show in the file tree, wasn’t detectable by Windows in any way; it’s like it didn’t exist. I really liked it. I see that Paragon says this is for security; PQ said it was to prevent boot conflict from having two full OS on the same computer.
