It’s that time of year again, when everyone feels festive and we find ourselves in the Downloadcrew Giveaway mood. This year, we’ve lined up five great software giveaways to share with you. From midday this Saturday until 4th January, 2013, you’ll be given the opportunity to grab up to five free commercial packages without having to pay a single cent.
We’re kicking things off with a doozy too – for 48 hours from Saturday 22nd December, we’ll be giving away free copies of O&O Defrag 15.8 Professional, worth $29.95. If your PC feels sluggish, then this powerful defrag tool is just the ticket for giving your hard drives a much needed speed boost.
O&O Defrag 15.8 Professional is a real powerhouse of a tool from our friends in Berlin, O&O Software. We awarded it five stars when we reviewed it last year, and it’s improved since then through a number of major updates, the latest of which ensures it’s fully compatible with Windows 8 PCs.
Why pick O&O Defrag 15.8 over other defrag tools? For starters it’s versatile, allowing you to defrag entire drives on demand, on a schedule or when your computer is idle, helping prevent fragmentation occur in the first place. You can set it to defrag at boot time, so your key system files get optimized, and you can even defrag individual files and folders directly from Windows Explorer.
O&O Defrag also packs in loads of features for advanced users, such as the ability to organize files into sweet zones on your hard drive for that little bit of extra performance. It’s also capable of working with SSD drives, optimizing rather than defragging to ensure you get the maximum performance from those too.
Previous versions of O&O Defrag were criticised for their system demands, but version 15 impressed our reviewer with its lightweight use of resources and speedy performance.
Now you know why you need O&O Defrag, how do you go about getting your free copy? From 12:00 GMT on Saturday 22nd December, visit our Downloadcrew Giveaway page and follow the instructions to download the program and obtain your free product key. The giveaway will run for a maximum of 48 hours so don’t delay!
And if you’re impressed with what O&O Defrag 15.8 has to offer, you’ll be gobsmacked by how good the latest version of the program is. O&O Defrag 16 Professional pushes the optimization envelope even further, delivering faster defrag times, a new Time View for helping you understand how defragmentation works and enabling you to fine-tune the program further to your needs, and the usual gamut of stability and performance improvements. What’s more, you’ll be able to upgrade to version 16 for the gob-smackingly low price of just $9.99 during the same 48-hour window that we’re giving away O&O Defrag 15.8 Professional.
So there you have it. Downloadcrew Giveaway returns with a vengeance this holiday season with free copies of O&O Defrag 15.8 Professional for PCs running Windows XP or later – including Windows 8 – available for 48 hours from midday GMT on Saturday, 22nd December. And that’s just the beginning, so keep an eye out for four more great deals between now and New Year!
