  • Windows 8 (all editions)
  • Windows 8.1 (all editions)
  • Windows 10 - starting with Update 2 (WD ATI 6126 or greater)

Instructions​

You need at least one WD hard drive attached in your system to be able to install and run the product.
The installation procedure is straightforward.
  1. Download the .zip file that includes both the executable file as well as the User Guide.
  2. Extract the .exe file and the User Guide.

Thanks yourself @JB007 , because this made me curious if Acronis had possible released any updated version. They have, and it's a real pleasant and nice one!

I haven't tested it fully yet, for example the ransomware ( rw ) protection etc, so I can't say how well or not that specific works. It does at least not seem to have any problem now initially in general, with for example F-Secure, but it might be a bit redundant using them both for rw protection.

The only thing right now I'm a little confused about, is what exactly I miss out on from the paid version vs this one? :unsure: @BagaudinAcronis , something you can easy help me and all others with?
