Being aware that there are unscrupulous vendors out there: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showpost.php?p=531693&postcount=1 And knowing that there are certified national resellers: http://www.acronis.com/partners/resellers/locator.html?&country=215&actv=1&category=8 I was wondering what is the best way to purchase two boxed copies of Acronis True Image Home 2009 for gifts for the holidays? I have tried the resellers and it seems you have to jump through a lot of hoops to purchase your software (Contact sales to set up an account that I would use once, etc). In addition I found it difficult to find Acronis True Image Home 2009 on any of those sites, and those that I did find it provided a download only option. I notice that on your website it can be purchased: http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/trueimage/ However it is, again, download only. Yes, I can purchase the CD for an additional amount, however I am unwilling to spend that amount of money on this software. That said, I am currently running Acronis True Image 10 and have found it an essential utility. It saved me big time when my hard drive crashed. I had just uploaded all of my pictures from a trip to Washington, DC and upon reboot it died. Making an image of the dead drive, replacing the drive, restoring the previous working image and then extracting the data from the failed drive image allowed me to recapture all of my data without any issue. Please let me know: 1). Where I can purchase your software with the security of knowing the serial numbers are valid. Secure, as in if the serial number(s) are invalid I can get new ones without question for free as they are a reputable or certified reseller. I cannot make a purchase from a location or reseller that does not offer this guarantee. 2). I can purchase the CD/DVD and not pay extra for that media.
