  • Starting from Update 3 for Acronis Backup Advanced 11.5 Universal Restore and Deduplication are included in the main license of Acronis Backup Advanced.

    If you had a separate license for Universal Restore and/or Deduplication, you simply install new build and keep using the product successfully with the features enabled. If you did not have a separate license for Acronis Universal Restore and/or Deduplication, you will have this functionality automatically included after you install Update 3. If you are using an Advanced version, please update your Agents as well in order to have the functionality enabled.
  • Starting from Update 3 licenses enabling application-aware backup/restore are available for purchase with Acronis Backup Advanced only (not available for Acronis Backup). Application-aware backup is enabled in Acronis Backup Advanced for VMware/Hyper-V/RHEV/Citrix XenServer/Oracle. All previously purchase licenses stay fully functional.
