Press release

Acronis®, Inc will no longer offer Acronis Privacy Expert Suite or Acronis Privacy Expert Server to the market

Dear Acronis Privacy Expert Customer,

Effective (1/31/08) Acronis®, Inc will no longer offer Acronis Privacy Expert Suite or Acronis Privacy Expert Server to the market. As a stand-alone product, the Suite and Server offerings will be discontinued, however, a key component of these products, Acronis Drive Cleanser®, will continue to be sold and supported. In addition, Acronis Drive Cleanser has been incorporated into our Acronis True Image11 Home product.

Support for these discontinued products will be available until the end of calendar year 2008 to facilitate migration to another product. In order to ease this migration to an alternative solution, Acronis is providing you the opportunity to purchase PC Tools Spyware Doctor® for $19.99 (US), a savings of $10.00 off the standard price of $29.99 (US). Click on Buy It Now to take advantage of this great offer. For more information and a no-charge spyware scan click Free Scan.

This is a limited time offer for Spyware Doctor, an award-winning product that is among the best rated offerings being sold today. In fact, last week it won PC Magazine's Editor's Choice award, and late last year was noted as a PC World Best Buy – receiving the highest rating PC World has ever given any product!

We plan to continue to support Privacy Expert through its existing support operations until 12/31/08. After this date, Privacy Expert will continue to function but it will not be updated or supported by Acronis.

Customers who purchased Acronis Privacy Expert Suite or Acronis Privacy Expert Server between 1/1/08-1/31/08 can contact Acronis for a full refund or exchange for a different Acronis product of comparable value.

If you have specific questions, please submit them to support at http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/company/contacts/request/?t=2

Sincerely,
Walter Scott
President & CEO
Acronis , Inc
