    Is this a safe link?
    I've heard of O&O. Just making sure because they're asking for personal info on page that's not secure-no lock showing in the address bar.
    Thanks.

    I got my email with license key. But where do I download the "Special Edition"? Or do I download the Professional Edition and insert the SE license key?

    Just tried the Professional Edition and the key they sent me did not work. I assume there will be a special edition to download.

    I believe Espresso posted it from some magazine that might include Special edition CD.

    I just went to this link - Products - http://www.oo-software.com/home/en/products/ and clicked on Download for O&O DiskImage 2 Professional Edition and filled in the registration info supplied in the registration email, i.e my email address and license key.

    As far as I can tell it is just the Standard professional edition even though their email to me is headed ...."Your O&O DiskImage Special Edition-license"

    P.S. Just make sure you use the appropriate country, not Australia as shown when you click the above link.

    Do you mean that you cannot register after installing, or you failed to download?

    I have the download, but waiting on someone else to advise on how the program runs, since I have never been able run image backups successfully. :oops:

    Waiting to hear from the experts.

    2.2 is the latest version and hopefully they provide a link to make/download the Recovery CD!

    Key doesn't work with normal version but with special edition it's ok.

    EDIT: Any links to register rest of these?

    * Ashampoo Magical Defrag
    * O&O DiskImage
    * Desktop Maestro http://www.pctools.com/desktop-maestro/free/promo/CADM0308
    * Fix-It Express

    Special Edition is version 2.2 Build 1837. I can't find place where I can make Recovery CD. Can I install Professional version Trial and make it?

    This is what I received from O&O support this morning.


    "thank you for your request.

    For downloading and installing O&O DiskImage SE please follow the descriptions
    on page 14 of your magazine.
    "

    I just asked if a magazine purchase was necessary to find this special edition.

    I think it is pretty clear what this answer means.

    As expected; not as good an offer as it sounds.

    After the first email, you are sent a second one stating that for £20/$40 you can now receive the FULL version of the Professional Edition which now includes the Windows-based Start CD for recovery of Images!
