Acronis True Image 2020

Recommended Posts

Are you sure there is a free upgrade to the Standard Edition? I did not see this on their website.

That's what it said when I bought it...my 2020 expires in Oct...so I bought it.
I think right now is the grace period for purchases so should include the upgrade

I'm still using the 2016 version, and I hate it because of the bugs.  Maybe some of my problems are caused by trying to prevent it from doing backups whenever it wants. I turn off scheduling and stop the scheduler service, but that doesn't seem to convince it. And when I start the program, it immediately gets busy updating one of my existing backups. (My solution to that is make them read-only.)  It's probably the buggiest program I've ever had on a personal computer, and I don't feel like paying them for another set of hassles.

I am alone, or has it improved?

Sadly (or not), I'm still using a version from 2013.  🤐

Fortunately, never had any issues with it (just have it doing monthly backups).

I should see what upgrades I have available.

Never had this issue and I've been using it for ages.
You might be configuring your back up as the wrong type.

I've had the 2010 version work despite the claim it didn't support W10.

All machines have 2020 installed.  If you wait the best deals come from Acronis.

I never install it, just make a  bootable disk and do backups manually when I choose, never had an issue.

I wouldn't like something like this running in the background, or have to deal with trying to reign it in, hence I never install it.

I assume you're referring to the backup scheme. I always choose Single Version Scheme. And I always choose Do not schedule.  I have to select these options every time, since my choices aren't saved between sessions.

I suspect that if my choices were saved, I wouldn't be having the problems.

Just now, Mesh said:

Can this be upgraded from any version?

No Mesh...it will check your serial # to see if it's eligible for the upgrade.
If you are asking can you buy this, then yes, as it's not an upgrade, but the 
full version that is automatically eligible for the upgrade to 2021

I try to get it but it cut me off and say no longer available during purchase. then every time I try it say unavailable or no longer available

So I change my location to USA and it available again, but don't know whether to risk it in case they get my money and I don't get item

Don't know why they care about location it's a download not shipping

Yes...Acronis True Image is like a Subscription...you get all updates and upgrades for 1 year.
So, if you had 2020, and it expired in Oct., after Oct you would no longer get updates
or upgrades...
