Pros: Integrated suite for handling most burning and basic media needs
Cons: Roxio has once again failed to provide the user with a selective installer (i.e., install and removal is all or none), gives no consideration to the size of the installation (e.g., conscious software vendors are responsive to SSDs and user needs), and no user input as to which services and startups are installed/enabled. Conversely, the software does not properly remove registry entries, files and folders when uninstalled.
Roxio BackOnTrack crashes whenever I attempt to configure backup settings, Videowave crashes at launch and MYDVD crashes while importing video. Roxio Creator 2011 sp1 worked fine... Relative to BackOnTrack, I have high end drive imaging software on my computer and no need for a comparatively unreliable and featureless product forced on me with CD/DVD burning software.
Installed unneeded startups and services that noticeably impacted performance until disabled.
Other Thoughts: Roxio Creator 2012 Pro is markedly similar to the previous version with the addition of a number of non-integrated third party applications, absolutely no ability for the user to selectively install desired features, startups and/or services, and conversely, little consideration given to individual user needs.
Overall, I see no benefit in upgrading from Roxio Creator 2011 to 2012 and I DO NOT RECOMMEND Roxio Creator Pro 2012 for new users over more economical and user friendly programs.
