Acronis True Image Purchase

  suedeblue 12:31 25 Jun 2008

Can anyone tell if there is a problem by purchasing (electronically) Acronis TRue Image from the US site (with US English) as it appears to be about £16.00 cheaper than the UK site.

From what I can see:
Acronis UK £39.99
Acronis US $49.99 (about £25.00)

Amazon (actual CD so you do not need to create your own boot disk))£24.48 .... post free.

Not that I am aware of, that's how I bought mine.

Bear in mind that the current price from Acronis is £26.67 + 15% VAT = £30-67, so cocteau48's suggestion may be better value.
The exchange rate was better when I bought mine.
You don't get a disk so make sure that you register with Acronis, so that you can get updates, keep a copy of the download and copy the serial number to a safe place just in case you need to reinstall.

Thanks guys for the advice. I'll probably go for Amazon on the basis that it is easier to deal with in the event of any problems.
Much appreciated.

The download is fine, after downloading it and saving your keycode, just burn a couple of backup copies to CD (the full downloaded exe file)

You won't lose your copy, and you save money.
