    Do you have the support and upgrade protection? I've been using PerfectDisk since version 4. I just received the email yesterday if my memory is working correctly.

    The "workstation" version seems to have been replaced by what is now called the "professional" version.

    I've never used OO. How exactly do you mean real-time? PerfectDisk shows the files being moved as it is defragging if that is what you mean. You see the fragments moved and consolidated. Nothing has changed with how the view is compared to the previous versions, however, minus the fugly colour scheme they're using now.

    OO defrag shows whcich blocks its reading from and writing to as it processes them. PD 7 just updates huge chunks as and when on my PC.

    At the bottom it shows which file is being moved/optimized/etc. I don't think in PD7 you could but now you can click on a button to see the filename of the current file being dealt with.

    How can one control PD on another machine with the erm.... connect to another pc function? I've never been able to do it. Do I need to have a server & client version of the product or something?
