Diskeeper and Linux

by Michael 11. July 2006 21:27
A reader (Mike from NCL Worldwide) responded with a question on Linux to my In the Oven blog. I felt this was an really interesting question and deserved added attention, hence this article. Here's the basic question he asked: Do you have any plans for supporting linux systems, ie, Fedora Core 4 (which we are experimenting with here). We are attempting to go web-based within our intranetwork for data entry, etc.. And if we switch to linux servers fully (we have one how that we use as an SQL server) I would be very interested in a defragger program for them. For his full question, read his response in "In the Oven". Read on for my response...

Diskeeper 10 betas for Vista

by Michael 11. July 2006 20:51
We will be releasing a new build of Diskeeper 10 to support the latest Vista build later this week or early next. A few testers have written in with comments on where to get support or report issues. While we aren't supporting this in the typical sense (providing a quick bug fix), we do want to incorporate solutions as we progress with our beta releases for Vista. That said, please send your comments/issues to FieldTest@Diskeeper.com. Our Beta Project Manager will get the data over to our developers for resolution in a future release. My apologies on the Blogging hiatus, we've been very busy. We are in the midst of wrapping the next new Diskeeper (very exciting) which we expect to launch later this year - i.e. before Vista. We are still looking for a few more RC (release candidate) testers for that release. The offer is open to existing Diskeeper customers. If you're interested, email the same address above and write in the subject line you wish to test. I also recommend providing contact data, including company name and phone numbers and if you are a volume license customer or a home user (so we can provide the proper software to test). If you have a customer ID from a past purchase please add that as well as it streamlines our review process for admission to the test program. We do have limited openings so please understand that we cannot accept all requests. Also note that the RC testing is very, very short (only a few days). We send out what is essentially a final product, and are looking primarily for "marketing" feedback and maybe some fine-tuning. It does require you answer some survey questions. Other than the short time frame we require, our testers have noted they really enjoy the ability to test our software and provide us feedback.

Diskeeper 10 beta for Windows Vista Beta 2

by Michael 5. June 2006 15:41
Diskeeper 10 (a beta version) is now available for Windows Vista builds 5381 and 5384 (aka Vista Beta 2). Beta 2 will be the first release available to the general public to test out. For MSDN/TechNet subscribers, you've likely already installed the latest OS. For the rest of us, you can sign up at Microsoft here (http://www.microsoft.com/betaexperience/default.aspx) to get access to it in the coming weeks as part of the Customer Preview Program.

Using Sitekeeper to mitigate the new MS WORD security vulnerability

by Michael 25. May 2006 14:55
The latest security vulnerability to raise eyebrows is the trojan described in Microsoft Security Advisory (919637). Unfortunately the final fix from Microsoft is not scheduled for release until a few weeks from now, though I do commend Microsoft on informing the IT public and offering interim workarounds. Major antivirus firms currently rank the threat of this trojan as "low" and already have updates to detect it, so I'd suggest caution as the workarounds do inhibit user functionality. Read on and I'll present a customizable way to deploy these fixes to select targets...
