"Expired license" with Norton Save and Restore
After my computer (XP SP3) began to exhibit BSDs similar to what some Ghost users reported below (and it's too bad I did not review this forum before taking "corrective action"), I decided to reformat my drive and reinstall Windows and my apps. When I reinstalled Save and Restore (version 1, I believe, since it has no version number), I got the error message that my license had expired.
According to the documentation that accompanies current Symantec products, those (like AV and web-based services) that are on subscription models may have update rights that expire after a point, but I saw nothing in the license or otherwise to suggest that any of the products are time-limited in the sense the license "expires." (You won't get updates, but you can stay stuck where you are indefinitely, it appears, while continuing to use an increasingly outmoded product.) Save and Restore, however, is NOT a subscription-based product and I don't recall it previously having had a subscription clock the same way that my AV products do.
There's no web-based support that addresses this issue and I don't want to ante up ten bucks for phone or online chat support when I think I've discovered something that is not "right" about the product. Is there anyone here who's had a similar experience with a reinstall to a clean drive and, if so, was there something you were able to do about it? Thanks for any assistance you can offer.
