How trial works

If you want to test Acronis Backup before purchase, you can download the trial version from Acronis website.

  • You don't need a serial number for trial period. Trial mode is implemented in the product.
  • You can use all features during trial, then you can choose between standard and advanced.
  • You can try advanced features, if you are currently using Acronis Backup Standard.
  • After purchasing a full license you will not need to reinstall Acronis Backup, only license change will be required. All settings will be kept (this means no need to recreate backup plans or backup locations). Select licenses depending on the operating system the product is installed on and features you'll be using.

Limitations of the trial version are:
