    I think Acronis is systematically charging more money for an upgrade than they advertise that they will. If so, that's wrong and some means of avoiding this problem should be built into the Acronis website pages dealing with upgrades.

    For example:

    I bought version 8 of TrueImage about a week ago, and am entitled to upgrade to version 9 for only $29.00. Acronis confirms that fact on a certain page that displays my registered products and what upgrades I am entitled to at what price. This past hour I clicked on a link text that promised me I could buy TI 9 for just 29.00. However, the resulting webpage charges $49.00 for the actual purchase. I clicked my way through that $49.00 charge for it assuming that once I authorize the purchase some adjustment would be made back to the $29 price I am entitled to. But that didn't happen. Instead I received a notice that my credit card will be charged the full $49 price. Bam...... no way to adjust the figures prior to approving it either.

    Who should I contact to remedy this overchargeo_O I suggest those webpages be revised so that when someone clicks on an offer of upgrade for $ leads to a page that states a transaction at $29.00 and not $ now happens.

    Thank you.

    Since you bought it about a week ago, you should be able to get 9 for free. Email Acronis customer service or maybe PM (go to a thread with Acronis Support - and click on the user name to go to PM).

    I know that the $29.00 upgrade price was working a few weeks ago so something must have changed in the meantime. Good luck.
