O&O FileDirect


O&O FileDirect is a software program developed by O&O Software GmbH. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The setup package generally installs about 12 files and is usually about 15.89 MB (16,657,336 bytes). The installed file ooliveupdate.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 10 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 67% of users of O&O FileDirect come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and United Kingdom.
