When switching from trial to the full version, you only need to provide the serial number or log in to account with active subscription. No need to reinstall the product, all backups, syncs, and other settings will be kept.
If you have an account with active Acronis True Image Essential, Advanced or Premium subscription, you simply need to log in under your account and Acronis True Image 2021 will automatically switch from trial to full version if you have available seats or if you had previously activated an earlier version of Acronis True Image on this machine.
If you have a perpetual license or if your subscription license is not registered yet, then follow the steps below:
On a Windows computer
There are 2 possible ways to move to full version after you purchased the product (in case it did not activate automatically after purchase):
- If Acronis True Image (subscription or permanent key) is registered under your account, sign in to Acronis True Image to activate the product. Computer must have internet connection in order to activate via Acronis account
- If you haven't registered the product yet, provide the serial number directly in the product interface
- Start Acronis True Image, and select Account on the sidebar;
On the Account screen, click Enter serial number:
If your trial already expired you will not be able to reach Account screen: in this case click Enter serial number on trial expiration screen (or Sign in if you have available licenses registered)
- Provide the serial number and click Activate:
- If you have a subscription license, you will need to log in to your Acronis account to complete activation
If you have a box version of Acronis True Image, you can provide the activation code (16 digits) instead of the full serial number (64 digits). You will be prompted to log in to your Acronis account to register your copy of Acronis True Image or to create an account, if you don't have one yet. Follow the on-screen instructions.
