    My company is now using a HP Pro Desk G3 on Windows 10. My current version of Acronis will not backup this tower. I have co-workers using the Free version of Macrium and Clonezilla. Acronis states on their web site the 2019 version will work with W 10. There are if I re-call correctly three different versions of 2019 Acronis to purchase.

    Does anyone have/had experience with Acronis 2019 and which version?

    Thanks

    From a business perspective, this seems really incoherent. People using their own personal choice of software for backups? It would seem better to use an overarching product, instead of a patchwork approach like this one. How do you share data? Is there a client-server infrastructure?

    Anyway, getting back to the main question: I would eschew Acronis 2019 and suggest looking at AOMEI Backupper. Even the freeware version is really good.

    Is this set up created or approved by your IT dept? If no one is consistent in their procedures, no problem troubleshooting will be consistent, and you are only asking for trouble. From a tech security standpoint, the more different and various programs across the network, the more doors that are open in the network for potential malware and hackers to use. It's an unnecessary security threat, and frankly bad planning.

    I should of provided some details. My co-workers are in different states. We work for a private company we are not a government/state employee. None of us are on the same/shared network/domain. The state I work in have the Biometric devices are on a connected/contained network that submit the criminal records (Ten Prints/Finger Print Images) to a server in the DOJ center. This closed loop system has no access to the outside world. For last couple of years I have been using Acronis True 2016 to backup/Restore XP and then W7 Towers W/O a license value needed going to X number/unlimited boxes.

    Does Acronis True 2019 now require a license for every Tower/Laptop/Tablet that is either Restored or a Backup executed?

    Does AOMEI require a license for every Tower/Laptop/Tablet that I need to backup and or restore?



    Thanks

    Yes, it's licensed on a per-machine basis.

    If you go with the paid version then yes, a license is required per machine.
