Thanks a lot mate

I got the registration email, but I don't see a link to download OO Defrag 10?
It shows OO Defrag 12.
u can find it here
Thank you very much, somehow I missed that link.
Thanks for the link.
How well does this compare to other top brands? I am trialing Puran right now.
there is a small review here
Puran is easier to use from a novice perspective, but O&O although it has more to click-on up-front, has a feature for 'auto' defrag, so that's all you might need to click-on.
For speed and boot-up time, overall running of your system, defragging of large files (tif and RAW files etc), both are excellent.
I used the latest version for the full trial. Noticed this version looks very similar to the latest version.
Thanks for the tip.
Just a quick one: any evidence you should use defragger?
Win OS has one built one.
windows defragger is slow .
Ok. Defragmenting is slow when using built-in one. When using modern hardware is there any advantage to defrag?
I understand using AV's and firewalls is good for you.
I wouldn't call the built-in slow. It completely depends on the size of the drive and the amount of fragmentation. As far as whether a defragger is needed, I'd still have to say yes, even in these modern hardware days. The one thing that never changes no matter how good your processor is, no matter the memory, no matter how super your system is, is that files will get fragmented. The more they get fragmented, the harder your drive has to work when accessing them.
yes windows 7 still uses ntfs file system which is prone to fragment.
third party defrag programs are faster and better at defragging than the one bultin to windows.
Any absolute(yes?)/measurable(yes?)/really needed advantage (??!) to gain for defrag?
Your HDD's will last longer when defragmented?
I can toss reports, articles and tests at you all day, but, at the end of the day, it's all words on paper. Use your system for about a month without defragging even once, that's the only way you're going to see the reason to defrag. It would seem to me the less your hard drive has to work, the longer it will last, so yes, I guess you could say defragging helps out in that area.
Hmmm. Interesting. Once a year is enough basically.
There is no scientific proof for using defrag everyday. Defrag is a stress and fragmented HDD is a stress. Right?
Though I have nothing to back it up, it seems like defragging every day might put stress on the drive. Once a year is a bit too little, but that's only my personal opinion. I make a LOT of changes to my system by playing online games, downloading and installing/uninstalling. So, in my case, files can get messy fairly quick. With a system that is rarely altered, I'm sure it's perfectly fine to defrag maybe once every couple of months or so.
Defragging stressful on a HDD, maybe but I know of people that defrag every night and have for years with no problems. I personally defrag every other day because of the heavy fragmentation encoding avis and creating wavs causes, I have seen 3 encoded videos cause 70% fragmentation on an 80G HDD, regularly 30%-40%. O & O 10 couldn't be easier to use for a manual defrag; select start which gives you choice of defrag method, choose method and select start again, used it for years.
Will the license key work on O&O 12(I just don't think so it will) just asking if they have some kind of renew policy.
Why use such an old version of this software? Only because it is commercial?
Even if this is temporarily free now, there are way better real freeware alternatives out there, like MyDefrag or Piriform Defraggler, which are updated regularly with bug fixes and new features.
The free offer is only for v10.
Version 10 runs smooth. O&O don't release junk.
btw you can upgrade from any version to 12 for just £20 instead of £30
