    Hi Napoleon,
    Is it worth upgrading and where is the upgrade option?

    Thanks,
    Ziaul

    I haven't looked too much at it...I plan to try it out tonight and will have some better information then. Not sure where the upgrade option is...I emailed support on that. It might be forthcoming as it was literally just announced.

    Hi Napoleon,
    After using the discount code, I am getting it for 12usd, but I would rather wait for the upgrade option if it's available. Please keep us posted on any information you get from support and also how good is the product?

    Thanks,
    Ziaul

    Will do. I like it myself...not super speedy for me but very thorough. I only run manual defrags, maybe once every two weeks to a month max (even then, I am only 3-8% fragmented at the max). However, I have fooled around with the live (background) defrags, scheduled jobs, and the zone options...I think there is a lot there for novice and advanced users. I recommend it myself. There are a lot of threads on here that weigh the pros and cons of all the defraggers...free vs. paid, this one vs. that one...it's easy to never make a decision with all the options. For my needs, this one works, and with the online sales and codes (as you discovered) it can be not too expensive either.

    I also don't run it very often, sometimes once a month and I feel that's enough. I got mine at a very cheap price, cost me around 3usd. :D

    Was able to take a quick peek...has some nice reporting features now if that's your thing (like charting defrags over time, optimization, etc.). Also seems faster off the bat for me.

    Hi Napoleon,
    Thank you for the information, speed improvement has been mentioned in the new version. Any news on the upgrade option and have you upgraded to the new version or not?

    One more thing was it a clean install or overwrite?

    Thanks,
    Ziaul

    Hi Sputnik,
    I straight away purchased the upgrade, even though I didn't had O&O Defrag 13 and then I applied the code. Please keep in mind, it only worked when I purchased O&O Defrag 14 upgrade and that's how it only cost me 2.74usd.

    Cheers,
    Ziaul

    No word yet. I usually do clean installs...O&O software uninstalls very clean to begin with (which I like a lot). Again, my preference.

    Installed over 14.5 without problems :)
    They have classic clusterview enabled by default in this version though, scared me at first but you can change it.

    I cannot find the link for the upgrade - only the full price product.

    Hi guys,

    To bring a bit of clarity to the upgrade issue: We decided to abandon the upgrade prices and lowered the price of O&O Defrag 15 from USD 49.95 to 29.00. So the price of O&O Defrag 15 is now actually lower than the price of the old upgrade version (which was USD 29.95).

    Give the new O&O Defrag 15 a try. The trial is fully functional for 30 days. You can find it on our website: http://www.oo-software.com/oodefrag.

    Hi Andreas,
    Thank you for the information, but it seems you'll have reduce the discount on the coupon code. Should have purchased it, when had the chance to grab it for 12usd. :'(

    Thanks,
    Ziaul

    Thanks! Always nice to hear from the actual company at times. Great job on the product, and great job on the new DiskImage 6 release...my testing has been going great (cold imaging).
