    Hey guys,

    I'm considering purchasing a copy of the new "Instant Recovery" software and was wondering how the license worked.

    If I purchase now, can I install it whenever I want?

    Are there any annual fees on top of the initial purchase price?

    Is this software pretty much the same as the old FDISR with some new bells and whistles? Any major differences?

    The coupon code is almost too good to pass up, so I just might bite.

    Thank you...

    most of the major differences are under the hood. Better isolation between snapshots, installs on Win 7 with no hack.

    As for the licensing questions you will have to go to the Raxco folks and ask there.

    Easter as far as I know the 50% off still applies in the link you posted. I used it last weekend.

    I have not read the license, but I have noticed during my experimenting with reinstalls of windows and transfer of archives to new the new installation that I can do that without restriction. I even changed hard drive. It was the same with FDISR One more thing that I loved about this software was that they hadn´t any stupid licensing rules where they decided if it was a legit install or not. (compare to Shadowprotect licensing for example)

    I dont know how it is if you install it on two different computers at the same time though. If I ever have to do that I´ll happily pay for a multi license since this is genius software enginering that deserves all the money they can get!

    sukarof, if you install IR on another system you will need another license. But one beauty of this program is that you can have multiple configurations of your system on your c:drive without having to purchase multiple licenses of Windows. I believe this is because all configurations of Windows are still maintained on your c:drive, you have not reinstalled Windows on another partition or VirtualMachine: You did no installing at all, just copied. Yup, this program is pure magic. Someone at Wilders, I don't remember who, purchased 7 licenses for the original FD, he loved it that much.

    Ok. Thanks guys.

    I still can't hardly believe what is come about is actually reality.

    I was resigned to the fact FD's ISR was totally finished and ended up just a flash in the pan.

    This is a really exciting revelation.
