Critical update for Raxco's PerfectDisk 8.x for Vista

In my inbox today:

Raxco is proud to announce that PerfectDisk 8 is the first and only defragmenter to be Certified for Windows Vista by Microsoft. PerfectDisk 8 Build 50 is now available for use on Windows Vista, as well as Windows XP Home/Professional, Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000 Professional/Server.

During the PerfectDisk 8 Vista certification testing process, Raxco’s development team uncovered a bug within a component of Windows Vista that could potentially cause hard drive corruption. Raxco has already reported this bug to Microsoft and Microsoft is working to resolve the issue. Raxco has designed PerfectDisk 8 build 50 to specifically work around this issue.

How do I get PerfectDisk 8 Build 50?

- If you are running PerfectDisk 8 on Windows Vista, it is critical that you update to Build 50. You can do this by clicking on PerfectDisk and selecting Run as administrator and then click on Help and then select Check for Updates.

- For non-Vista versions of Windows, run PerfectDisk, click on Help and then select Check for Updates.

- To re-download a purchased PerfectDisk 8 installation, follow the instructions in the email receipt that you received when you purchased PerfectDisk.
