Diskeeper Corporation Supports Outlook Foundation Programs that Provide Computers to Students in Need and Military Personnel Being Deployed 

Diskeeper Corporate Office Is One of the Sites Where Computers Will Be Distributed 

BURBANK, Calif. and LAS VEGAS, Feb. 22, 2011Diskeeper Corporation announces its active participation in the Outlook Foundation’s programs to repurpose computers and give them to children in need, as well as to military personnel being deployed and their families. The Diskeeper Corporation corporate office is one of the sites where computers will be distributed to recipients. 

“We are very pleased to make this commitment to such a worthy cause,” said Colleen Toumayan, PR and Media Relations Executive for Diskeeper. “John Iasiuolo, president of the foundation, is also host of the Computer Outlook Radio Talk Show, for which we’ve been a corporate sponsor for the past eight years. Our participation in the Outlook Foundation is an extension of the trust and respect we have for John, and is one way we can show our support for his efforts to help others.” 

The student and military recipients of the Outlook Foundation computers being presented at Diskeeper Corporation will be announced soon.  For more information on Diskeeper Corporation visit their website at . 

“The Outlook Foundation, which is based in Las Vegas, supports students and military personnel across the country, and I am very grateful to Diskeeper for stepping up as the first corporation to play an active role in our programs,” Iasiuolo said. “Technology is so critical to children’s education, because a computer gives them access to a world of information and opportunity that can change their lives. And for military personnel being deployed, computers keep the family in touch, even though they may be a world apart.”

There will also be computers given to student and military recipients in Las Vegas on March 2, 2011 at New Horizons Computer Learning Center of Las Vegas.

My question is not related to the topic of this blog post, but I'll ask it anyway because I am quite concerned.
Is latest Diskeeper 2010 (build 913) compatible and safe to use with newly releases Service Pack for Windows 7? Are there any existing or potential issues users should be aware of when using DK with SP1?

Trying again:

When HD's were measured in megabytes and single digit gigabytes, defrag meters were fun to watch as little squares were moved around like slide puzzle tiles until they were all bunched tohether into a seamless whole.  The present DK pro 15-bar graph just fades gradually, but for the occasional very large file.  On my 1440 pixel screen, a one pixel line represents over 46 MB.  If the bars were half the hight and the legend were spread out into 4 columns (perhaps scruching together when the sindow is sized smaller than full screen) the progress meter would show much more activity in 32 to 34 bars, instead of the present 15.  The fun of defragging might return.  Certainly, the grass would seem to grow twice as fast.  Perhaps, the number of bars could be quadrupled, even!  Now, that would be a show!  each pixel line would represent 11MB.  Even the fading would be obvious.

Good Question. All builds of Diskeeper 2010 are fully compatible with Windows 7 sp1. SP1 did nor incur major changes (i.e. safety) for defrag solutions.

Thanks for the feedback George. We're always looking for ways to improve the product.
