Some Common CoinManage Questions

HI, I have a few questions regarding your software.

I have us coins and world coins, mostly us coins.  About your software, does the software update the price of the coins?

The Deluxe version includes complete listings for USA, Canada & UK Coins with values.  We update the values each yearly release like your average coin values guide.  The PCGS values are updated every few months.

What about world coins?  If I purchase the CoinManage 2015, will I need to purchase the updates each year?

It is never mandatory to upgrade, you can use the version you bought as long as you wish.  Or you can upgrade each year for a reasonable cost..or skip years and upgrade a few years down the road with no penalty.

I have PGCS and NGC graded coins, does your software work with these grading companies?

It works with PCGS slabs.  We looked at NGC, but there doesnt seem to be a way of getting the coin variety from the NGC slab barcode.  

How far back does your software go (track DATE)?

 Includes all USA coins from 1793-Present.  If you want to keep track of value changes from certain times, you can always print reports and save them to PDF, Excel or some other format.

I looking for an simple way to track all my coins, as of know I use my own spreadsheet, Microsoft Excel which does not track prices.

Clone Your Old Hard Drive

There is not a day that goes by where we don’t have a customer or 2 emailing us about a hard drive crash.    They are going through the tedious process of re-installing all their software..so we get an email to re-send download and activation details.

A few months back I took our main development machine in to the computer shop, it was incredibly slow and would often freeze for minutes at a time.

The technician there was an old-school computer tech, reminded me of the tech guys when I worked in computer stores in the 80s.  We were chatting and he told me his “hobby” is to write HTML code using NOTEPAD.   Anyways, he told me my hard drive was probably going to fail soon.

He then gave me some great advice.  Using a program called Acronis TrueImage Home you can basically duplicate your hard drive.    What you need is the CD copy of the software and a new internal hard drive.  I bought a new one for $65 that had twice the storage as my current hard drive.    You then attach the 2nd drive to your computer..boot up with the Acronis CD and follow the steps to duplicate the drive.

So now I have a brand new hard drive in the same development machine that works faster and has more storage than the previous one.

Here is a link to a site that describes the steps necessary.  If you are not technically gifted, go to a computer store and pay them to do this.

So if you have an older machine and the hard drive is getting on in years.  I strongly urge you to consider cloning your drive.
