Minor updates are free for current versions. 2BrightSparks defines a minor update as a minor improvement to the program that maintains the major version number. The following are examples of minor updates:
V8.1 to V8.2
V126.96.36.199 to V188.8.131.52
V8.x.x.1 to V8.x.x.2
Note that there may be numerous changes across a span of minor updates which could amount to significant improvements to the program. As an example, SyncBackPro V184.108.40.206 was released in October 2011 and SyncBackPro V220.127.116.11 was released in October 2014. Everyone who purchased a license to use V6 enjoyed free updates throughout this whole period (well over 400+ changes).
We do not provide free updates for outdated/obsolete versions, except in rare situations to address a critical issue.

Is SyncBackLite eligible for upgrade discounts?
As an entry level backup solution, SyncBackLite is not eligible for upgrade discounts. SyncBackLite customers have the option to purchase a new SyncBackLite license when a newer major version is released, or remain with their current SyncBackLite license indefinitely.
General Upgrade Policy
1. The purchase of an upgrade license requires the previous purchase of a license. The upgrade serial number can only be used with a previously purchased valid serial number. Please ensure you have a record of your license number before purchase.
2. The number of upgrade license to buy cannot exceed the total number of past license previously purchased.
3. If you have several full licenses you may choose to purchase up to the same volume of upgrade licenses.
