    Trying to pry a measly $7.50 out of loyal customers is IMO a "cheap shot". If, as quoted in the lure (if you will) this info is widely available. "not even a "hidden" feature... quite prominent..."

    Why doesn't the developer just publish the freakin' info instead of trying to squeek $7.50 out of us.

    just my $.02

    Agreed.

    I would have thought paying users would have received this free of charge :thumbd:

    "Before you read on about the UltimateDefrag Update,
    please take a moment to checkout the sampler of
    an E-Doc we have just released that will show you
    how to get an average of 44% more performance from
    your hard drive without spending a single penny on
    software or hardware."


    In the Teaser .pdf it states that up to 500% increase in speed is possible.

    BullShit I say.

    This gives me not a good feeling,as i am advocate this app far and wide and deserves it no doubt about,but this .............. no good it defames their reputation.Not a good move.Give it free to customers and then they tell far and wide how good their services is.

    I agree. If I paid $7.50 for that and then tried the product(I have) and saw no performance increase(I didn't) I'd think they are con artists(which I don't really think)

    This is a new high in dumb marketing moves.

    I downloaded this document and it has made me decide to dump UltimateDefrag for PerfectDisk. I feel this is very bad marketing and the document is only 15 pages. Kinda costly for a NTSF File Compression help file.

    On one hand they should give this away for free to paying customers as a 'bonus', on the other hand they did do the studies on this and came to the conclusion it is beneficial by their own hard work. If I were them I would not only give it away to paying customers, but anyone who pays for the extended trial. On top of that I would subtract the costs of the extended trial from any final purchases.

    How To Use File Compression in Windows XP:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307987

    and...

    Best practices for NTFS compression in Windows:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/251186

    Based on their methodology and without even reading their 'E Doc' (Just their introduction to it and it's description) I can come to the assumption that newer processors are able to decompress compressed files so fast that NTFS file compression actually pushes files out of the way of the hard drive read head enough for the compression to actually be beneficial.
