    "The demo app it is VERY hard to uninstall!"

    August 23, 2012  |   By rayrue


    I can't review the demo version because it allows you to do very little, requiring that you pay the full $98 for the defrag feature.


    If you try to uninstall the demo app you will end up with repeated "Launch Failure" messages on your screen until you've rooted out every last bit of the software from your library. I lost about an hour of work just trying to figure that one out!


    It seemed as though the demo app and the "Drive Pulse" menu item that it embedded on my toolbar (both extremely difficult to uninstall) were a blatant attempt by the company to force me to buy their overpriced software.
