Here it is - Windows Vista support

by Michael 22. January 2007 17:13
We're as excited to offer this software as many of you have been to get it (my apologies for the delays). Your patience has allowed us to deliver an excellent and well-tested product. The Diskeeper 2007 software for Windows Vista is a free update, for all current Diskeeper 2007 customers. If you purchased Diskeeper 2007 or have a valid maintenance contract (i.e. upgrade assurance) to Diskeeper 2007 you qualify for this free update. If you don't run Windows Vista, stay tuned as there will be a Diskeeper update coming very soon (use the Check for Updates feature in Diskeeper) for Windows 2000 and Windows XP/2003 users. As you know, the current Diskeeper versions do not install on Windows Vista, which means the Check for Updates feature won't help. So, the way you can get this product is to contact us and we will send you an email with a link to download the software. Keep in mind that this product is for Windows Vista only; at this time it will not install on Windows XP or Windows 2000. To expedite your request place the words "Diskeeper for Vista Request" in the subject line of the email. Trialware will be available on the website later this week for anyone who does not yet own Diskeeper 2007. Here's how to get Diskeeper 2007 for Vista:

Some More Info on "On-The-Fly" Performance

by Michael 8. January 2007 14:18
I want to clear up a few confusions I've seen recently on the internet. Diskeeper 2007 introduced on-the-fly defragmentation for the first time in the Diskeeper product line but, it should be stated, Diskeeper was not the first performance tool to do this. This "real time" defragmentation has been on our development plate for many years, but it lacked a technological advancement before we could add this into the product. As Diskeeper is one of the highest selling software utilities (usually 7th or 8th, by volume in North America, after Norton AV, Ghost, and antivirus from a couple of the other major vendors) we have a tremendous responsibility. We sell many millions of licenses each year, and a good number of them end up on mission critical servers in the world's largest companies. The product, as it evolved into a truly automatic program, had to ensure that the product offered all the benefits and none of the drawbacks an on-the-fly application might generate, on these massive server systems. The benefit of addressing the consideration of a high-powered SAN or application server also translates to the small business and home user, as they now get a technology designed for some of the most powerful Windows-based computers in use today. Kinda of like putting a turbocharged sports car engine in an economy car, but still getting the MPGs. Speaking of car analogies, it brings up another. The following is an article I wrote for the Diskeeper 2007 release, but it seems appropriate to re-publish here... [forewarning: this is a marketing article, not a technical one :-) ]

The latest on Diskeeper support for Vista

by Michael 3. January 2007 16:55
We are wrapping up a private (i.e. limited testers) field test to confirm all the new changes in the Windows Vista file system are properly accounted for. The current time frame should make this product available in about 10-14 days. That puts the release around the US holiday of MLK day (January 15th). When we get nearer to the release I'll write a blog entry to cover specifics as well as how to get the software.
