Announcing Acronis True Image 2015 for Mac:

Acronis recently announced their award winning backup software product for the Mac platform. Over the years as I have presented the exciting True Image backup utility to user group audiences, I am always asked if it runs on Mac computers. Many times I was forced to state that this important backup software would only run on PC based computer. With 51% of American household now using Mac operation systems, I am pleased to now say it will work on both the PC and the Mac platforms. I know that many of my user group friends have Mac computers and have waited for this announcement.

Just go to and click on the appropriate Buy Now button next to the package you wish to purchase.

Acronis Bundle (3 Licenses):

Today, many users have multiple computers in their household. A computer for both the husband and wife is common and that would require two licenses of Acronis True Image to backup both computers. Also, it would be nice to be able to organize the partitions on both computers to give you better control over your system. That would require a license of Acronis Disk Director utility. So, we now offer a special Acronis Bundle of 2 lics of  Acronis True Image  and 1 lic of Acronis Disk Director for a total of three licenses. Our Acronis Bundle is specially priced at just $60 for all three licenses. To order, go to the True Image product page and click on the Buy Now button next to our Acronis Bundle offering.
