Means If I have an image created in week 51 after purchase I'm not able to restore data in week 53?

This is a deal killer especially for a backup solution. I don't mind paying for upgrades after 12 months, but backup software should function indefinitely to allow restoration of a backup at any time.

Dennis McKay Subscription software is always a deal killer. I only buy software I pay for once and can use forever, even if I don't upgrade to the newest version. Sometimes newer versions remove things I like about a software package and add things I don't want and would never use.

any user Most(if not all,) Software companies are going to this subscription based funding for them. People like us, who want to test and try out software are not really wanted by the software company owners. I just purchased this product, without even realizing it is a 1 year subscription. I would not have paid the $14 had I known this first. I like the minitool software products, but NO I DO NOT want to pay your company a FEE every YEAR!!!!!

Bitsdujour should simply just stop offering subscription ware. Especially with something as critical as this.

Visitor-2014 As the posters above, I dislike and avoid subscription software. But it should be mentioned that this company is so fair to offer on its website also a perpetual license (valid for lifetime usage) including lifetime free upgrade, at the moment for $ 79 (license for 3 PCs). (= "ShadowMaker Pro Ultimate").

So the current offer here at BistDuJour may not be very attractive - but there is a good alternative.

Nico Westerdale Great News! MiniTool® Software Ltd. has agreed to extend this deal for another day - Enjoy!

Bertie Brummel @ visitor-2014: Thanks for the hint. Mini-Tool's Partitition Wizzard is a great tool I bought a while back, I should have expected a better offer for Shadow Maker :-)
On their www-site it makes sense to have a look at the "upgrade to Win 11 section with a discounted offer for the Shadow Maker lifetime pro version too. The price does not include though.

PatrickB I am not a big fan of this program, I prefer other solutions but I like MiniTool Partition Wizard Pro. When will you offer us MiniTool Partition Wizard Pro lifetime version

Kelly Hamblin @ Bertie Brummel and others who are complaining about today's offering being a subscription. I understand both sides of the issue completely. The software vendor needs and deserves to earn something for their hard work. A purchaser does not want, and maybe can't afford, to pay over and over again to continue to use the software. My problem with this kind of program has to do with the backups themselves. I never us a backup app that requires me to "restore" a backup or depend solely on the application that created the backup. My backups - even full drive backups - are accessible with one click - like any file or folder - from whatever drive they have been copied to. If my current drive stumbles I can copy everything back. If my current drive dies, all I have to do is remove it and replace it with my full backup.

IMHO we should make a difference depemding from the type of software. For an AV-Tool the subscription model is OK, but for a backup tool? Acronis (so far) and O&O offer but do not demand upgrades every year. A few days ago I received an update for Acronis TI 2018 ....

I'm still running Acronis 2013 and 2015 on two old Windows machines with no problem. Have saved me a couple times and made upgrading my primary drives in those machines easy.

Hello, you can still use the MiniTool® ShadowMaker Free edition to restore these backups if the subscription expired.

W. User I want to BUY it, not rent it. if it was for sale I would ha got 3 of them.

any user A yearly Fee is just ridiculous. What if I could charge the company a yearly Fee because I evaluated their product!!! Essentially, they want to sell you a GYM membership, charge you whether you ever show up or not, and make it impossible to cancel. And Heck, everyone else is doing it, why not us. I think was Microsoft that started this 'Subscription" Concept. April15 each year, pay your taxes and your software subscriptions!!!!
