Partition Assistant (Pro) gathers telemetry even if UX program is disabled

Since version 8.2, deselecting the option to take part in the UX improvement program does NOT disable it: the program continues to gather telemetry information (put in the file "%SystemRoot%\GA_OF.dat") AND contacts the AOMEI servers.

Together with the issue explained here https://www.aomeitech.com/forum/discussion/5693/gdpr-compliant-version-still-phones-home it seems that AOMEI is simply lying to its customers when it comes to privacy.

  • It will collect data whether you disable that option or not, but it won't send data to AOMEI server if you deselect the option.

    Thank you for clearing that up. But why is there communication between the program and an AOMEI server, just like Backupper?
