PA 2011 Pro Legacy vs ToolBox Upgrade?



  • Been looking for an answer to my question on the forums for the last hour and have not yet found the definitive word on the matter.

    I have PA 2011 Pro Legacy and my account page shows a very tempting offer to upgrade to the toolbox edition. My question is simply, if i already have Pro Legacy and i then upgrade to Toolbox - what extra stuff am i getting?

    Cheers
    Ian

    f you have purchased Pro in the past, you will still get those features via license we call Pro Legacy. However if you use PowerArchiver a lot, and love all the features and developed, are excited by prospects of new format and new features, please do consider upgrading to Toolbox. For VERY low fee, you will get great AV (you can use it yourself or give it to your family members), and upcoming apps like our next standalone backup utility which will feature our PAF format. And you will be supporting PA development of course.

    Hope that helps.

    right now you get BitDefender 2011 Internet Security… more info here:

  • I will always buy the most recent version of power archiver just to ensure I have the best conexware has to offer 🙂 and the discounts help too.



  • Don’t need BitDefender (I don’t think pay A/V not worth it over Windows Defender for most people) so will wait for Toolbox to include something more useful for me.

    Didn’t find it very clear from your Toolbox posts that only BitDefender was the extra for Toolbox.

    For new PA 2011 buyers, BitDefender isn’t the only extra in Toolbox over Pro.

    A summary of my understanding from http://www.powerarchiver.com/forums/showthread.php?p=25202:

    “Toolbox” will include the following items above the “2011 Pro” package:

    • PowerArchiver Burner with Virtual Drive
    • PowerArchiver Backup with VSS
    • PowerArchiver Secure FTP

    Toolbox also includes the 1 year subscription to Bitdefender.

    For current 2010 Pro licensees, ConeXware is providing upgrades to a license they call “Pro Legacy” that includes the above features without the BitDefender license. As far as I understand it, the “Pro Legacy” license will not be sold. If you want those features without Bitdefender (and you’re not eligible for the upgrade to “Pro Legacy”), you have buy the Toolbox license and just not bother with BitDefender -I hope they make it easy to not even install it.

    It’s only a link that is provided to download BitDefender. It isn’t built in to the Toolbox version in any way.
