I originally posted the following as a reply but feel it deserves a new thread: What is the "release date" for TI9 that Acronis is using? I just purchased my copy of TI8 on 9/16/05. This is very confusing. Acronis should post a message that anyone who purchased TI8 after XX/XX/XX is entitled to a free upgrade. Then explain exactly the steps necessary to receive it. Anyone else agree? I hope Acronis responds to this message. Thanks.
