You receive the following message:

You've exceeded the maximum number of activations for this serial number


  • You exceed the limit of available activations. For example, you have an Acronis True Image 2018 1 computer license and attempt to install Acronis True Image on more than 1 machine.
  • You reinstall or upgrade your operating system.
  • You upgrade your machine with new hardware.
  • You replace your machine with a new one.

If you want to use Acronis True Image on more machines than you license allows, you will need to purchase additional serial numbers and activate the new copies.

If you have reinstalled or upgraded your operating system or hardware, or simply moved the product to a different machine, reactivate Acronis True Image in the new environment.

  • Enter another Acronis True Image 2018 serial number you have already purchased.
