I loaded it I activated it and I deleted it as I could not understand what folder or drive it wanted as it kept telling me it was the wrong one.Jun 1, 2018 at 6:25 am #11266600DougvTGuest
Followed instructions but when logging in to get key, Step 1 was OK (green check mark). Step 2 “Show license key” was grayed out and never showed the key. I have many Ashampoo products and this is the first time this has happened.Jun 1, 2018 at 8:45 am #11269825davidGuest

Does ashampoo backup also restore the applications on the hard drive? I want to restore my data, but also want to restore the entire drive, so I can reinstall onto the same or a replacement hard drive and keep going?Jun 1, 2018 at 12:55 pm #11272568PierreGuest
I got the same problem, but refreshing the screen revealed the license key.Jun 1, 2018 at 12:57 pm #11272576PierreGuest
Bitdefender tells me there’s a virus in the download from SharewareOnSale. Anyone else had that issue?Jun 1, 2018 at 2:12 pm #11272942consuellaGuest

I desire to backup my Windows 10 operating system and all installed software, at least all on drive C, such that if I lose my entire system as has happened before I can boot and bring back Windows and my software. Ideally it would put back settings, configurations, etc. for my software as well. Can Backup 2018 do this?
I don’t want Backup 2018 to protect my data. It is well backed up already and is too large to practically include in a system backup.Jun 1, 2018 at 8:14 pm #11275534Yi Ki RainbowGuest

[@Pierre] Thanks! Will try this.Jun 4, 2018 at 3:25 pm #11308657andemandeGuest
@Ashraf, thanks a lot. Of course, there is no malware anywhere.
The program itself is self-explanatory. Once one has an account with Ashampoo keys are provided within a second or two. What’s more, Ashampoo keep a record of all keys acquired.
Just to get an idea how the software performs I started off my first Ashampoo backup (Windows image) which as I understand includes the complete c:\drive plus any hidden drives required for Windows.
Compared to other software of this kind, Ashampoo, at least this version, lacks the usual whistles and bells such as splitting an image into smaller chunks, supporting various grades of compression, upload to a clouddrive or even estimating the time for completion of the job.
As with all such software, you never know how restoration will turn out, full success, part success or complete failure.
As I had some excrutiating time with Acronis, not even able to successfully complete a single backup, despite lengthy contact with their so-called support staff, I will take any bet that Ashampoo will at least try and put right what might be causing problems.
Right now I feel quite confident with Ashampoo Backup 2018 as the progress bar keeps advancing. If I find anything unusual in the result, creating the rescue media, I will report back again.
Meanwhile, once again, my sincere thanks to Ashraf.Jun 4, 2018 at 6:29 pm #11309621WandersonGuest
I was able to activate with serial, but when activating the plan it asks for login and password q I do not have where to find?Jun 13, 2018 at 1:24 am #11425295KaiGuest
Same problem. Check mark next to “Step 2: Show license key” is grayed out. Sadly, multiple page refresh did not reveal license key.
