Introduction

If you already have Acronis True Image Home installed on the machine, there are several installation scenarios that you can go based on your licensing preference.

For details on Acronis Backup and Security 2011 license policy see Acronis Backup and Security 2011 License Policy.

The basic difference between Acronis True Image Home and Acronis Backup and Security 2011 licensing is the following:

  • Acronis True Image Home, when purchased and installed separately from Acronis Backup and Security, is a perpetual license - i.e. the license does not expire and is for one machine only;
  • Acronis True Image Home, when purchased and installed as part of Acronis Backup and Security, is a subscription license - i.e. the license expires in one year from the moment of activation and is valid for three machines.

If you do not have Acronis True Image Home installed, you can just install the full version of Acronis Backup and Security 2011 as described in Acronis Backup and Security 2011: Installation of a Full Version.
