"PRO a waste of money, IF you've an earlier version"
An excellent, one-stop solution to almost all your computer maintenance woes.
Mediocre defragmenter. PRO frankly a ripoff IF you've already paid for an earlier version, which will be deactivated and lost. Pay again for what you already own! For yet more good money, PRO variant a minimal advance over earlier efforts.
Of course, mine is a protest vote. If you have not bought a version of IOBit 360 PRO already, snap this up like a shot and it will do a great deal to help you enjoy a trouble-free, worry-free computing life. It may even make your current machine last a little longer. I wouldn't be without it myself. So...why my disappointment?
There is no warning that you will need to pay all over again for this new PRO version. You install it...you've lost your existing copy...and unless you have your credit card at the ready, nothing now works. This is a nasty little scam which many users appear already to have noticed and protested at. Since IOBit must have heard and clearly don't give a damn what any of us thinks, my negative reaction.
And what do you get for your cash? Very little that you didn't have before. Indeed this new effort seems merely to restore what earlier versions had before these facilities were deleted. No doubt there'll be a few clever new bells and whistles I haven't noticed, but nothing to grab the attention and little to mitigate my description of version as a needless rehash to make more money out of what was already fine.
None of this applies if you have not already bought IOBit 360, of if you wish to install the new free-of-charge variant. The free version, in particular, seems a fantastic gift horse which you can indeed look in the mouth. One of your users above reports it as spyware, and I have also had anti-spyware software (although none of the main players) which throws a wobbly. Is this the answer, or is it the other software that's at fault? There again, with software as helpful as this, do you really mind a little bit of data seepage?
