    I am a happy user of TI8. I received the email telling me about TI9 and am considering upgrading. The email told me about the special upgrade price of $29.99 and if I wanted extra copies I could get them for the special price of $39.99. It then said this was a time limted offer.
    Which one is time limted or are both?

    My question really is; If I don't upgrade within the time period (which is not specified) will I have to pay the full $49.99, or can I upgrade for $29.99 at any time in the future?

    I would be grateful for clarification.

    Bump!


    Acronis - do you have a policy on this please?

    I'm sorry to keep bumping this, but it does seem like a valid question that many people would be interested in, and I haven't had any sort of response yet!

    Here's hoping,

    Thanks Jbmoar, this is what I had hoped but I had wanted to get confirmation as the price difference is significant!

    So now I receive an email saying that the T9 upgrade is time limited until Nov.30th!

    Is this true - anyone? Acronis?

    Didn't you just answer your own question?

    1) You received an Acronis email stating it was time-limited.

    2) If you want to know if it's true why aren't you emailing Acronis Sales?

    I thought this was a tech support forum.

    I own, use and trust TI8. In view of the questions regarding the upgrade time period I just purchased the TI9 upgrade, down loaded, and registered it.

    BUT, for the time being I am NOT going to install it. I will wait until more of the reported problems are resolved. Then I will download the upcoming fixes. But I am locked in at the upgrade price time limit or not. I know that eventually I will upgrade so no problem going ahead doing it now.

    Well, yes I guess I did answer my own question. :oops: The reason I posted was that I think the policy has changed as it didn't say that in earlier e-mails, and people posted here saying that they thought it was not time-limited.

    I just thought this was a support forum, not specifically tech support. I was looking for other users' views/opinions/experiences - I didn't think and upgrade question was particularly off-topic especially considering the earlier problems that TI9 has had.:doubt:
