    Hello all!
    Im switching over to Acronis TI from the "other" imaging software and have a few basic questions.

    My Primary Use: Backing up my home network PCs (4PCs) to a "soon" to be Linux box.

    Licenses:
    1) I understand we need one PER machine that we want to back up. Long story short, I have a machine that I would like to have a 'basic' image of in case of failure (incrementals are not needed) just the single "restore" image. Is there a license that would allow this type image? A one shot image deal?

    2) If I upgrade my Mobo/Proc etc will I lose my License? (Some software you will loose your license if you upgrade hardware)

    3) How many times can I re-install the software? (M$ XP Pro makes me call them for another Key Code when I reformat to a new drive).

    4) Is there a more cost effective license for my needs? I want to back up 2-3 PCs to Image files, or will I have to purchase the full versions 3 x $00.00?

    Downloadable Software:
    1) I have downloaded the user's manual already, and I plan on doing the Digital Download of the program and burn the program to CD. Will I be missing anything from the Box version?

    Etc:
    1) Is there a version of TI for Linux?


    I cant say enough after using the Trial, Acronis is spot on! I have so had it with the "other" imaging software nightmare of creating boot disks. With TI I just clicked and burned and BAM! bootable CD that can see my network all in a wonderful GUI interface!
    Great Job Acronis!
