Hello and good morning to u all, I currently have system mechanic 9.5 installed on my desktop pc. I run Windows XP SP3 on my pentium 4 pc, it has C drive is 145gb(78gb full), and I have a 1TB external hard drive attached, (around only 115gb has been used)
Ashampoo are celebrating 11 yrs, and they are doing an offer for 55% of anything till oct code is ashampoo. I'm interested in this product here..

Which would prob cost me a tenner with this discount,....but I was wondering if this is worth it for me, as I have the system mechanic it has a hard drive medic in it...or whether as the ashampoo product is just for hard drives, it would be a good bargain to have.
If someone can get back to me with good advice, that would be much appreciated, many thanks

After a fair ammount of experience I am beginning to believe that all these paid for "Disc Management" programs are a waste of money.
CCleaner is free and is really all you need.

I'm with rawprawn - I'm firmly convinced that running anything other than CCleaner (and I only use that once a month) is a waste of time and money. My tutor at college went even further and only recommended using Windows own disc cleanup tools.

Just wait a few weeks or so in their next offer it will probably be free
