Please read, found an important flaw that can lead to total destruction of data. I canceled my pre-order after I found it.

Basically ACDSee demands that you place the 'file delete' confirm at the OS level (recycle bin option) vs leaving it as an option limited to ACDSee image review manipulation.

Before we could select tools-option-file management confirm delete behavior on/off. Now this being set at the OS level. This means that if you accidentally select 'delete' when at the disk level or while opening a file (any program), say good bye to your data until you retrieve it from the recycle bin.

I am an IT consultnt and system administrator and ACDSee is now off my list of recommendation for those I consult for and definitively barred from the network I administer.

Note this information (use recycling option) came from ACDSee tech support.

Wow off your list and barred?
Is a little over the top in my opinion.
But you will be happy to hear they fixed your concerns in the new patch.
