Mac Fragmentation Field Study

by Michael 4. February 2009 11:38

We are looking for Mac users (OS X - Tiger and Leopard) who would like to participate in a short data gathering field test. We have an analysis tool that gathers data about fragmentation on the system and reports this data back to Diskeeper Corporation. (It does not send any other data from your computer).

The analysis tool has an easy to use GUI which also provides reports to you about the data collected.

There is NO limit on the number of participants. The more data we collect the more this study will help us, so please fee free to spread the word to other fellow Mac users.

This study will, however, only last for a short time, so please act fast.

To sign up for this test, simply fill-out a Non-Disclosure Agreement located here.

Fax the signed NDA to:
Fax: 818-252-5514

Please add the following to the Fax cover page:
Attn: Field Test Administrator/Mac Field Test

Alternatively you can email the signed NDA (scan in the pages with your signature) to our Field Test administrator.



New Boot-Time Defrag in Diskeeper (2008/2009)

by Michael 3. February 2009 11:42

A few weeks back we released the new Diskeeper 2009 and an update to Diskeeper 2008. Both include major changes to the Boot-time Defragmentation engine.

For users of Diskeeper 2008, if you are running Vista SP1 or Server 2008, the boot-time defrag feature was restored (apologies on the delay). This new iteration adds additional functionality to handle additional metadata files that Diskeeper previously did not such as $SECURE, HIBERFIL.SYS, $Extend\..., $Upcase.

Boot-time defrag will now also do partial defrag of the PAGEFILE.SYS, when free space is low (or really chopped up). Before, defragmenting the paging file was an all or nothing approach.

For user of the latest and greatest, Diskeeper 2009, a even newer, more efficient variation of the boot-time technology was included.

We have a few more things in the works for the boot-time defrag that we are planning to release in the near future (currently targeted for Diskeeper 2009). As always, you can get a first look by joining our Field Testing Program.
