One Care Phase Out RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was told that One care is being phased out.  Is this true.  My subscription is up in September and would like to know whether to renew or not.

  • Unfortunately this is true. See this announcement - http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/onecareinstallandactivate/thread/ebe7e8de-c7a2-41c7-9072-24d3a2bc04ec If you attempt to renew in September you should be offered a free six month extension of your subscription.

  • How will i be able to access an old file previously backed up by OneCare after OneCare is uninstalled?

  • Before your subscription expires I suggest performing a custom restore of all your backed up files to a folder on your computer for easy access until you find a replacement backup solution. If One Care is uninstalled you can extract the One Care backups using a utility such as WinZip and a file joiner for any files that have been split - http://www.freebyte.com/hjsplit/
