    There is no place to put in an email on the registration page I get from the link you provided. How do I go about registering it?

    So this giveaway is for v11? as i see their current version is v14! kind long way between the 2 versions.

    $49.95 Free! (100% off)
    $49.95 is for the version 14 and you propose version 11
    this is not fairplay

    I get it,
    v11 free for lifetime
    or they could give v14 for free for 6 months to try it.
    I guess that will be most fair.
    But anything free i also good.

    I see each vendor has a different idea what these free sites are all about.

    I keep thinking we are we users give marketing feedback for a current version.

    Vendors seem to think otherwise, either giving us a limited-use period that expires, or an already retired program where feedback is useless because, hey, the vendor has already moved on, and few vendors participate in the discussions.

    I suppose OO-Software just wants us to become familiar with their product so that maybe someday we will buy.

    And maybe they figure that giving away their old version at least keep their competitors out of our computers, maybe.

    Um … thanks?

    But I don’t feel like much of a participating-partner with OO-Software with this offer.

    That is the weirdest mis versioning, where v11 and v12 are simultaneous, then v12 and v14 are simultaneous, and there’s no v13.

    What’s the difference?

    v12 “… substantially increased the speed of data backups in the new version 12 … twice fast[er] in backing up … New: File Backup Function. We have developed this anew to increase speed across the board. When measured for single files, mixed files and program files, Backups are now twice fast[er than ] ever before, New: Fully compatible with the Fall Creators Update from Microsoft, Optimized: Creating a native Boot Medium for Bare-Metal Restore …”

    v14 “… The new DiskImage To Go function automatically turns an external hard drive that you select to store an image on (or USB flash drive with enough storage space) into an O&O DiskImage boot medium, and marks this disk as the preferred storage medium for future system backups. As soon as you connect this external USB hard disk to your computer, O&O DiskImage 14 automatically creates an image of all internal drives and the data partition onto it … O&O DiskImage 14 now brings full support for the VHDX (Virtual Hard Disk) Format. The main advantage of VHDX is its increased storage capacity of 64 TB (terabytes), instead of VHD’s standard storage limit of 2 TB. Another advantage of VHDX is the file corruption protection.

    So, v12 and v14 are twice faster and compatible with Windows 10 current editions, and v14 adds “Disk To Go” auto self backup, and VHDX hard drive compatibility for more than 2 TB.

    I tend to reinstall a crashed computer using original installation media.

    I tend to backup to a variety of separate drives for each type of data, a music drive, a documents drive, a couple of movie drives, a TV drive, an installation programs drive.

    Yeah, that’s a lot of drives, but that spreads risk, and drives are cheap, and they tend to pile up as I upgrade, so old ones become the archive storage.

    I tend to drag and drop across a home network using free TeraCopy to only send new files, or use free RoboCopy in a batch file to do the same, and go to bed, by morning, everything’s backed up from all computers to all my archive drives.

    And any computer can see all the backup.

    Wanna watch a movie?

    I can do that from any computer.

    Wanna listen to an album?

    I can do that from any computer.

    Wanna find a document?

    Again, I can do that from any computer.

    Should I explore OO-Software DiskImage v11 to see if it can take the contents from a dozen or so well-organized drive around my home network, and bifurcate it across a variety of network drives for separate backups by type?

    Or should I just continue to use free batch files of my own making and free RoboCopy commands of my own selection?

    I’m thinking that learning OO-Software DiskImage v11 may be an investment in a too too limited set of capabilities that are already left behind by the vendor.

    I think I’ll stay with the all-purpose freebies of free batch files and free RoboCopy n=on a schedule ( and free TeraCopy on demand ).

    Thanks for the opportunity to revisit my own backup routine.

    I have the feeling that we were the lowest of the low as far as this vendor is concerned ,I am not going to dance that twisted limbo to get a key to a program that is long outdated and cast away .It is 2019 and so far for the year i have already bought 5 programs three of which were based on giveaway trials that meet my needs from last year ,if thes vendors are going to be this smutty to us as far as i am concerned they can keep their programs and i will give my money and recommendation out else ware .So to O&O happy to see you back with us but certainly not thankful for your contribution today ,no thank you .

    I was interested in this offer at first. Then I read the process. No thank you. Far too many hoops to jump through. Even if this was the newest version. but for an old, obsolete version? I have much better use of my hard drive space.
