Since Ashampoo gave me a 'great' special price offer, I decided to purchase the new 1.01 version (I tested Trial 1.00 version & had problems with it.) and give them the 'benefit of the doubt' & believed they had fixed the problems I had encountered in version 1.00. Shame on me, shame on them; the problems were still there.

1. Initial 'run' of the program, I got none of my SATA hard drives showing in the program!

2. After doing a 'manual' Rescan of the HDs, I 'sometimes' got my SATA hard drives to show in the program; but... it refused to continually 'monitor' my SATA drives.

3. A reboot of system put me back to #1. and having to repeat #2. again... not a good thing.

It's unfortunate this program is responding this way on my system, while a FREEWARE program is having no problems monitoring ALL of my hard drives. And... the FREEWARE program is updated fairly frequently by the author.

Due to continual problems with this program, I have requested a REFUND of my purchase price & removed the program from my system. Ashampoo is starting to give themselves a 'bad name' because of this & I think it is an indication they are trying to 'rush' a program to market, instead of taking the time to give it a 'thorough' testing prior to release. I know the world economy 'sucks' right now... but that's no reason to release programs that aren't 'ready' for release.

I will say, I have several other 'older' programs which I have purchased from Ashampoo & they perform as I expect... doing what I purchased them to do. Again, it's unfortunate Ashampoo's newer programs are not holding up to the 'high' performance standards of their older programs.

Pros
  • 1. Easy to install.
