So easy a caveman can do it!

Ease of use. This was one of the core driving factors that we built Diskeeper 2007 around. We wanted to deliver a product that was completely automated, and solved poor disk performance without the user having to lift a finger. That design works great for the home user, gamer, the small business customer all the way up to mission critical servers in the world's largest corporations. With that cheesy intro, I'd like to welcome our new friends, the wacky green lizard and neanderthal friends to the Diskeeper family. As a site license customer (formerly Winternals Defrag Manager's largest), they join Diskeeper site/huge VL license customers in the insurance biz such as Allstate, Nationwide, 21st Century and Liberty Mutual.

Product Activation - Why?

by Michael 16. March 2007 12:56
Foreword: This blog is written to express my personal viewpoint of why Diskeeper Corporation has included activation in the latest Diskeeper 2007 version. A few years ago, Diskeeper Corporation began a global expansion plan. That plan targeted Asia as a huge and growing market, about to come into its own in the world of software. China is predicted to be the world economic power in a relatively short period of time. One example of this is the city of Shenzhen. Shenzhen has grown from a few hundred thousand locals in 1980 to about 10 million people today. This city was "created" by the Chinese government as a modern industrial city and trade center to the world. Pioneers such as Adobe and Microsoft have long since moved to take advantage of this burgeoning market. As part of that process they developed anti-piracy technologies and began educational campaigns in many parts of the world, including Asia. Diskeeper Corporation has established great partners in these new locations to help expand the company. They are there to aid customers in their respective regions with Sales and Support. They are also a tremendous asset in that they are local to their regions and know the culture. We understand that we, as an American company, have a lot to learn with respect to doing business with the rest of the world. While I can't speak for the reasons Microsoft, Autodesk, or Adobe have added activation, I am privy to much of the same type of information from which they are operating. These are the reasons Diskeeper Corporation has moved in this direction. In many parts of the world, digital piracy is rampant.

Top 10 Corporate Utilties - a marketing blog.

by Michael 13. March 2007 15:09
First off, please forgive the non-technical blog. It's a rarity and I'm promise not to make a habit of it. So how does the most popular automatic defragmenter (with a 98.9% defragmenter market share*) compare with other popular corporate software products? Lucky Number 7! Given the respective company, that's not to shabby. Best-Selling System Utilities for Corporate Use by Unit Volume* (North America): 1. Symantec Antivirus, Symantec 2. Symantec Ghost, Symantec 3. NeatSuite, Trend Micro 4. Clnt/Svr, Trend Micro 5. ScanMail, Trend Micro 6. Active Virus Defense, McAfee Inc. 7. Diskeeper, Diskeeper Corporation 8. Active VirusScan, McAfee Inc. 9. Etrust, CA, Inc 10. OfficeScan, Trend Micro Top 10 list taken from a 3 month span of unit sales, from November 2006 through January 2007. *North American Product ranking and market share are based on unit sales. All the data comes from National Purchase Diary (NPD) distribution channel software sales report. NPD captures 88% of all sales going through distribution channels.

New Diskeeper Build (11.0.701) available

by Michael 6. March 2007 05:18
We've released another build of Diskeeper 2007 with a few minor fixes and new functionality. This build will install on Windows 2000/2003/XP/Vista. Here's the list of enhancements: 1. This product always requires Product Activation upon install. 2. Silent Activation is enabled which will automatically activate when an internet connection is found. 3. If an Internet Connection is not found, the ability to manually activate the product is available (also for PC's not connected to the Internet). 4. Fixed some User Interface refresh issues. 5. Changes have been made to prevent Diskeeper from unnecessarily polling floppy disk drives in Vista (already fixed for other OS'es in build 698). 6. Reliability and performance issues handled. 7. Diskeeper now preserves timeframe exclusions when imaging across multiple machines. 8. Diskeeper defragments NTFS Metadata Files ($Extend) in XP and above online. This includes the USN Journal. 9. Diskeeper now recognizes Encrypted Virtual Drives. 10. Fixed minor issue regarding MFT fragmentation reporting. 11. Boot-Time Directory Consolidation is now available for FAT volumes. 12. Some 508-compliance (accessibility) issues have been fixed. 13. Fixed InvisiTasking graphs for Foreign Operating Systems. 14. I-FAAST Measurement fixed for Foreign Operating Systems. 15. Fixed various minor Vista Compatibility Issues. This build is available via Check for Updates if you are running Vista. Due to the fact that this build requires activation (and you may not have had to do this in the past) it is not yet available via Check for Updates for XP/2000 users, though will be in the near future. You can, however, grab the trialware from our website and install it over an older, licensed, build of Diskeeper 2007. This is essentially the same as downloading and installing the trialware from the Check for Updates site. I anticipate one more build release for Diskeeper 2007 in the coming month or two as we complete other minor accessibility requirements for our standard Microsoft "Logo" Certification for Vista and Windows 2003.
