  1. Hi Remco,

    If you have a valid license for 12, you should have received an email last week with a new 125. license key. If you did not, please contact Customer Service and they will take care of you.


    1. Hi,
      I took knowledge of your new version 12.5 of Perfect Disk.
      I have bought the 12 version on 01,08.2011, and paid the
      software to Cleverbridge, their invoice nº AKD-73612918802.
      According to you all users os the 12 version are entitled to upgrade
      to 12.5 free of charge.
      As I am satisfied with your software, I would live to have the last version.
      Best Regards
      José Soares

    2. I am a licensed user of PerfectDisk 12 Professional, and I understand that I am entitled to PerfectDisk 12.5 at no charge.

      My order for PerfectDisk 12 Professional was placed in the Raxco Online Store on 06 June 2011 21:24 and my Raxco Order/Reference Number was 204471943. I have emailed Raxco Support to request a new 12.5 license key, and the system generated an enquiry Ticket Number 197-16952B8D-008F.

      But so far, I have received no reply from Raxco Support and have not been issued with my new 12.5 license key. Can you help please?

      With best regards for the New Year,

      Andrew Grannell.

      1. Hi again,

        And thank you! I received my new license key yesterday evening (Wednesday) and I am extremely happy with PerfectDisk 12.5 Pro.

        As far as I can see, every aspect of the new application works flawlessly. I have successfully done things such as boot time defrag (MFT, Page file) that I had never tried before.

        Many thanks again for your courtesy and your help.

        Kind regards,


  2. Hi there!

    I have downloaded PD Pro 12.5 Trial today over the Company Website. After installing, the Program tells me that i´ve got 10 Days Trial-time left. Other Websites telling me that it should be a 30 Days Version. Don´t get me wrong, a full Trial for testing Purposes is always appreciated, but 10 Days to compare is a little bit low.



    1. Hi Marc,

      Thanks for your comment. We have recently modified the trial for PerfectDisk from 30 to 10 days, and some sites that offer the trial may not have made the appropriate change in their description. We have found that most people have been able to make their decision in the 10 days we are now offering.

      1. Hi!

        Thanks for your Answer. Trial Period doesn´t matter no more for me. I have purchased PD Pro. It outperforms my previous tested/used Defragmenters by Day one on the Windows Partition (faster Bootup, quicker Sys reactions), and also on my Game Partition with an I/O heavy Game (nearly instant Texture load, smoother Gameplay in general), after setting up PD for my needs. Tests with HDTune are outstanding too. Congratulations and thanks for that great Program. PD does what others only promise. 🙂



  3. Hi,

    I have bought PD 12.0 pro online at Cleverbridge. Since Dec.19. I am trying to get an answer from your support about the licence for Version 12.5. But the raxco support totally ignored my emails. What´s the matter?

    thank you

  4. Hello, I TOO bought a 3-pack PD 12.0- Pro upgrade on June 16,2011, and although I have sent out 2 emails, one through your support weblink, and the other from my email address and listed all the information associated with Cleverbridge, I have not heard back from you about a New License Key. I have 12.5 installed and it works GREAT, but I only have 3 days left in the trial. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

      1. Thank You! I ALSO made a phone call to BOTH Tech Support and Sales leaving my callback number but to no avail. I realize we are into the Holidays, so I hope to hear from them on Tuesday! Again, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happier New Year!!!

  5. I have been trying to get this company to answer their support for over 3 weeks. As I purchased PerfectDisk with upgrade support, but can not get a software update key for 12.5

  6. Dears,
    almost every 2nd post on this blog is related to delay/lack of support for PD software.
    I’m not exception. Did you upgrade your support team or teach them to support customers (not “support”!)?

    Can’t get any response from support on request regarding upgraded key for PD 12.5 for WHS 2011. Reference #28579612.

    Thank you in advance.

      1. Do i understand correctly that there is a bundle for the server and the client pc’s ?
        If so what is the cost difference involved in upgrading, i have only purchased the home server version at the moment.

  7. when you download the current version it is called pd12_whssa and the file version is the home and pro are 12.5 and have the same file version number but the product version is different?

    1. PD WHS is v12 build 290. With the WHS bundle, PD 12.5 Pro is included. The number is the File Version for the file that users download, but that is actually irrelevant to the version of PD.


      1. Thanks for explanation.
        One more question: mentioned above WHS bundle has two products inside.
        Is that PD 12.5 for WHS use or client host? Or: is PD 12.5 compatible with WHS?
        Is PD WHS special version dedicated to WHS only and PD 12.5 more universal?


        1. Hi Simon,

          The Bundle includes PD 12.5 Pro for use on the client. PD WHS is a special version to run on the host; so yes, you could say that PD 12.5 is “more universal” (i.e. for the client).


  8. Hi, I have bought PD 12.0 pro online at Cleverbridge. I am trying to get an answer from your support about the licence for Version 12.5. But the raxco support totally ignored my emails. What´s the matter? Thank you

  9. I guess this is the best place for support… I’ve also emailed support for the 12.5 License key, but no response. I purchased the WHS 12.0 bundle (WHS and Pro) on 6/10/11 reference number: 23376722. Would like to upgrade to 12.5 if possible. Thanks in advance for your help.

      1. Me again (above post, 29 Dec)… it’s been four days and I’ve still not heard anything. Any update on when I might receive the key for 12.5? Thank-you
