Fragmentation in action (a video)...

by Michael 3. April 2009 10:21

If you've ever stopped by a Diskeeper booth at a trade show in the past few years, you may have seen our clear-case PCs.

Inside those clear case PCs we have WD Raptor X drives with a see-through cover. That clear cover allows you to watch the disk head moving across the platter.

When you defragment one drive and leave one fragmented, it makes for an interesting visual side-by-side comparison. That's a test we videoed and posted on YouTube.

Defragmented drives, mean less wear and tear over the life of the drive so it lives longer. It also means less energy used to power and cool the PC.

Quick turnaround from Kaspersky

by Michael 11. March 2009 10:16

Kaspersky Anti-Virus is reporting a false alarm (known as a False Positive in software security terminology) on Diskeeper downloads as of late yesterday. If you tried to download our software (Diskeeper) from our website, it triggered a "Trojan" alert in Kaspersky.

The issue was reported to Kaspersky yesterday and they verified Diskeeper was clean (no viruses) and rapidly released and update to their software to correct this. By early this morning they reported that the problem has been fixed and that customers should update their Kaspersky AV software.

Our QA team has verified this fix works, but recommend users of Kaspersky AV reboot their systems after updating and prior to downloading Diskeeper. If you do not reboot, you won't get that "Alert" message, but we found that you will still get a "Warning" about the Diskeeper download, so please reboot if possible.

Thanks to the team at Kaspersky for such a quick turnaround!

Undelete for Windows Home Server update

by Michael 9. March 2009 10:13

We're planning to release Undelete HomeServer edition in mid to late April. It will be specifically made for the Windows Home Server (WHS) operating system.

The price will probably be around $59 and include an Undelete license for WHS and also 10 Undelete Desktop Client licenses for your home-network PCs/laptops. Installing the Desktop Client on PCs provides you connectivity to the Undelete product on the Home Server so you can view and recover files remotely.

I've been using Undelete on my WHS system for over a year (the standard Undelete Server product works on WHS but is too pricey for home use at $499). To release the product for WHS we need to offer a better installation, documentation, and make minor adjustments to a few features.

You can read a review about using Undelete on WHS here.
