    Why am I not eligible? I answered the Poll specifically stating that Macrium is the #1 goto software for backup and recovery.

    Is all I need to do is edit my post to add my backup strategy? If so, then my strategy is listed in the post.

    What else do I specifically need to do????

    I need to be entered to win. I really want that license!

    Am I not understanding something? Please advise.
    You need to vote in the poll at the top of the page. That's all.

    You have not answered the poll, only posted. The rules state clearly that you must both answer the poll and post in this thread. You were already told where to find the poll:

    Where is the poll for me to leave feedback? Can you provide a direct link?
    Poll can be seen and members can cast their vote on top of each page of this thread.
    Simply select one or more programs you use for backup and click Vote now.

    When we are giving out something for free, the rules must be clear and selection / draw totally transparent to avoid any complaints. If someone who has not fullfilled the requirements to participate should win, you can be quite sure it would start a flow of complaints. Therefore it will be exactly as told in the rules: Only those who have both posted in this thread and answered the poll will participate the draw.

    At the moment your vote is missing as below screenshot clearly shows:

    You tried to vote when you still had not posted anything. Be active, post something when you find an interesting thread to reply and try again. You still have almost 29 hours voting time left.

    In the mean time I'll try to find an admin and check what are the minimum requirements for new members to answer a poll.

    EDIT:

    @rossnixon I checked this from forums owner and admin, there should be no restrictions for new members to participate / vote. Please try again

    That's interesting! Now it says I've already voted - strange, perhaps it accepted my attempt to vote while it still displayed that I couldn't. Now to check if it shows me in a voter list that I think I saw somewhere...

    Imaging software:
    I've used Windows on one computer, Paragon B&R (several versions) on another, Reflect on another...
    but now use Macrium Reflect on all my home and work computers.

    Yes, you are now in, you seem to have voted "Something else".

    To see who has voted what, click the number of votes for any poll option to open the votes list.

    Note   Note
    Following members have answered the poll but not posted in this thread and therefore according to the rules not eligible to participate the draw:

    @aramil, @CountMike, @Alan Russel, @DaveGrant101, @fred0843, @kado897, @Skoshi, @sneekez, @stevenson53, @thebodger, @Ivan4you

    Geeks you still have time to fix this, the poll must be answered and at least one post in thread posted before 12 noon Saturday UTC. Over 26 hours to deadline (see countdown), please post to participate in draw.

    Rules are simple: answer the poll, post your reasoning in this thread before 12 noon UTC Saturday 3rd of September 2016. You must both answer the poll and reply this thread to participate. Posts from Ten Forums admins, mods and team members will not participate in draw.

    Your first post in this thread entitles you to a ticket in drawing. Your ticket number will be the next number available, if you are 51st to participate your ticket number will be 51.

    You are of course free to post as many times in this thread as you want to but the post count does not increase you chance to win.

    I was just answering the poll lol....

    OK. EaseUS, because it has always worked when needed (very rarely, if at all these days). I have used several others in various situtaions for other people.

    I have a backup server for all important data etc, so if the need really arises I fresh install with custom install media and restore data from the server.
