Retrieving Acronis True Image Home 10 serial number?
I know I have an old product, but it is on an old computer and I fear change.
My problem is this: Is there a way to retrieve the serial number of my store bought Acronis True Image Home 10 which is installed on my computer with Windows XP professional, BUT, it would appear that I probably didn't register this product when I installed it on computer? Forum search suggested this could be done from same area that the "build" version is when program is started, but it it did state "if product was registered." I tried it anyway, but it only gave "build" version, but no serial number/key.
This issue came up after I had to fix boot problem with XP by running system repair via Dell disk, but that made Acronis unable to back up. I searched forum here, saw that others reported similar issues, but tried a few things posted, but this did not work. So I ended up uninstalling Acronis completely, with plan on reinstalling so it would hopefully fix problem. Couldn't reinstall as it wanted the serial number on box (box is likely in a land fill and no serial number on the disk envelope (which would have been a better location).
I ended up using Acronis disk to boot and used a backup image (which is why I create a weekly image of entire hard drive). This restored image again had intalled Acronis on it and because it was before my boot problem, Acronis works again. My only concern now is if I have to use the Dell system repair disk again in the future, and I need to unintall and reinstall Acronis (to get it to work again), I don't have the serial number.
Is this number stored somewhere on my computer that I can check and record for future need?
