I have used Fences off and on for many years. I finally decided to leave behind the last free version (1.6?) and go for the whole Object Desktop. The day was spent happily configuring and trying things out, and arranging all my goodies with my latest and greatest Fences.
This afternoon, I booted up with the intention of editing a script I've been working on. Apparently in my moving things about the desktop, Fences only grabbed a shortcut to the file instead of the actual file object (apparently dragging and dropping an object into a fence only creates a shortcut?). Long story short, several items I've put a lot of hours in to are gone. The initial glee turned to horror. Thankfully I have backups of some of the older files, and a file undelete tool recovered the newer ones (thanks Glary Utilities for not screwing me, money well spent).
So I uninstalled everything in my control panel with a publisher of 'Stardock Software'. You have my money, but I won't be renewing whatever the subscription plan is to the desktop. I can't have this kind of loss be part of the 'trial and error method of learning new software'. I have work to do. It's sad for me, because I really enjoyed the fairly-predictable desktop arrangement that Fences gave me on each boot.
Hopefully other customers have a much better experience. I love the overall look and customization advertised. The theory is great, but the daily execution (in my case Windows 10 Home 64bit) just can't be trusted to not make my hard work disappear. These are my real-user experiences, and probably don't reflect results given when things are used 'properly'.
