O&O Defrag 14.5 Professional discount 81% on february 18, 2012

This offer is valid for february 18, 2012: http://giveaway.downloadcrew.com/

O&O Defrag 14.5 Professional for $ 5.45

Quote
O&O Defrag 14 Professional Edition is a comprehensive and highly configurable tool for optimising the layout of files on your hard drive.

You could simply install the program, and forget it. O&O Defrag will reorganise your files to deliver the best hard drive performance, and then run in the background, automatically detecting new fragmented files and defragging them as soon as possible, preventing any further degradation of your PCs speed. (And no, that shouldn’t interfere with other programs – in our tests O&O Defrag proved very light on system resources.)

If you like to take a more hands-on approach, though, it’s also possible to create your own custom hard drive layout rules. Move unwanted files and file types over here… High priority documents over there… Leave particular system files in that corner… It takes some thought, but if you’re an experienced Windows user then there’s no reason why you can’t enhance O&O Defrag 14 Professional Edition to squeeze even more speed out of your system.

And however you intend to use the program, you’ll appreciate design details like the clear, easy-to-use interface; the excellent defrag scheduler; the new SSD support, using regularly scheduled TRIM commands to improve write speeds; the Explorer integration (defrag any file or folder from a right-click option); the notebook support (defrags are optionally disabled when you’re running on battery power); and the ability to run defrags before Windows loads, allowing the program to defragment system files that would otherwise be locked.

If there’s a down side here, it’s that the first defrag you run can be relatively slow. But if so, that’s probably because O&O Defrag is optimising the layout of files on your hard drive. Once that is done, though, your PCs performance should improve, and as the hard work has been done, subsequent defrags will be much, much faster – just a few minutes in our tests.

Note that this product is on-sale to clear with kind permission from O&O Software. Get it at this price whilst you can!

Hi,

"STOCK UPDATE FEB 18: sadly, we've now run out of serial codes for this promotion and won't have any back in stock until Monday February 20, so this offer has had to end early. Check the Downloadcrew Software Store on Monday if you are looking to purchase O&O Defrag 14.5 Professional, at a special discounted price."

Hopefully the price will not change.  Since I like simply using Piriform's Defraggler once in a while, I am not sure I want to get involved with a techie defrag program.  Any glowing testimonials ?

Monday is a holiday, so they may find themselves bumping another day.

Steven

I've never been a fan of O&O's defrag program, but I'm probably a fringe case as I run a lot of my drives right on the edge of running out of space & there's only been one defragger that I have ever encountered that could 100% defrag a drive that's 95+% full and it wasn't O&O's offering.

What do you use for packed drives?

Raxco's PerfectDisk is the only one I've found that will completely defragment a drive that's 95% full. This special offer aside, it's also cheaper than its competition.

I have done that in the past with JKDefrag, now MyDefrag (free/donation-ware)

The fact that they are using downloadcrew turns me off from this. Betanews' new sister site, an attempt to re-brand themselves with more commercialism, is just as terrible a place as the original.
