Hello folks,
Anyone know where in the UK midlands preferred, I can go into a shop and buy over the counter
Acronis drive image Ver 7xxxx I have tried places like local PC World
I am aware I can get it via the net using a credit card but not willing to scatter cc details over the net not even on an alleged secure site.

Thanks for any help

If you have a Cahoot Credit card, you can get a temp credit account under your main CC. This card can only use once and you can specify the uplimit.

Thanks, for that information, I didn’t know you can do that, I’ll contact my CC Company to check out if they have this facility.

I have bought two programs from Acronis with no problems, for a start Acronis doesn't take your money. An independent company called Element handles your credit details, you will find that any purchase is confirmed by both companies, and you should have no trouble. It's easy to become paranoid in this world, but buying from a reputable company over the internet is no different than using your cc at your local garage, in fact after all the cloning that goes on nowadays, probably safer.

I would confirm the above message by "rawprawn" in respect of Acronis.
The way I do it is to have a second cc with a very low limit for web purchases.
