    "Too expensive, poor and humiliating support"

    July 08, 2014   |   By Ungava2013

    Version: WhereIsIt 2013 build 320

    Pros

    Freelance developper, I understand why. . .

    Cons

    Too expensive, ultimately only catalog the drives eventually.

    The developer is arrogant, egocentric and dishonest in his answers to potential users and buyers. He's much more concerned about his person than to satisfy its customers. Very bad support. Crashed soo many times when trying to catalog 2TB hard disks. Please RTFM and faqs before asking for help, ask Google, God or whatever, otherwise beware... But if you have masochist behaviors . . .

    Too many restrictions in the license purchase. Be careful when you replace your PC or move your database. Hours of fun to be insulted by his royal highness Mr Bob Galle.

    Look properly, there is plenty of freeware solution (Gentibus) and great pay with a very good support (abeMeda - Cross platfom with MAC).

    Summary

    Don't buy anything from this guy or I spank you.

    "The free Disk Explorer Pro is better in the long run."

    January 30, 2014   |   By DDRAMbo64738

    Version: WhereIsIt 2013 build 320

    Pros

    Nice set of features with a Windows 'ribbon' interface (if you like MS Word >2010). Reasonably efficient, BUT,...

    Cons

    Uses a chaotic protection scheme that works by corrupting the databases of those suspected of using 'stolen' or 'fake' serial#'s, even if you bought the program. Sometimes this is a 'mistake' because the program isn't flawless due to the sophistication of the scheme, in other words, these schemes are worthless to begin with since hackers always get whatever software they desire, but when it 'goes wrong', that database you slaved for days to commit to Whereisit! may suddenly be inaccessible, and you'll have to start all over again. And by all accounts the 'programmer' is more concerned about hacker than paying customers.

    Summary

    My disk records are too important to entrust to a piece of software that may corrupt them just when I need to access them, and I'm not going to go through hours of carefully setting up the database with all the sophisticated features allowed with this program only to lose all that effort because the programmer wants to 'hurt' some idiot who probably wouldn't have purchased it anyway. Worst case scenario, I get screwed out of my money and time while the bums that don't pay just use something free such as the wonderful cataloger called Disk Explorer Pro, which I finally settled upon based on my analysis of comments from paying customers and a trial use. Besides, Disk Explorer Pro is much faster and has nearly the same level of options, but is focused more on the user and not trying to force folks to pay who probably wouldn't to begin with. Paying for software doesn't guarantee a concern for customer satisfaction, such as Windows itself.
