    What do you do?

    I paid for Photoshop many years ago, and have the installation disc . Since then I have updated the program 2 or 3 times, up to CS6 now, and have downloaded these updates. With Adobe moving to a subscription base, to which I will not be subscribing I have a question about what to do about the fact that I only have a downloaded copy of CS6. I presume it cannot be copied to a disc as a program, and the downloaded files are too big to copy to a single disc, so how do I preserve my copy of photoshop in the event that I have to do a reinstall at some future date an it is no longer available as a download on Adobe. The last update did not come through Adobe but from a reseller, so it may not be available on that site either.
    The age of entitlement isn't over, it's just over there where you can't get to it.
    When several possibilities exist, the simplest solution is the best.

    Your order should have been stored at the Adobe site along with your serial number and proof of purchase etc. I have a copy of it as well. I needed to upgrade my SSD hard drive from 120Gb to 180Gb and I just reinstalled it on my new hard drive along with the serial number etc.

    I understand it is only there for a limited time though, 3 years I have read somewhere. And if I don't go on the subscription treadmill then after 3 years what ?No photoshop?
