Removing Fragmentation? SOUNDS good to me

by Michael 25. August 2009 10:37

I found this Diskeeper Log interesting. One of our Account Managers recently installed voice recognition/dictation software (on August 19). If you follow the daily log reports, you can see the dramatic difference in the daily number of fragments eliminated. Diskeeper went from averaging 3000 fragments eliminated per day to 15,000!

Eliminating fragmentation to get the expected performance from voice recognition software programs is well documented. Here is one good report on the subject.


A Diskeeper story? Yes, something does come to mind:

by Colleen Toumayan 25. August 2009 10:16

Our Executive Vice President had a 3-year old Dell computer that had probably never been defragmented.  It had only 512MB of RAM and when I worked on it, it was EXTREMELY slow.  To open up MS Word had to take 10-15 seconds or more.   I installed Diskeeper Professional and let him know what I did to speed up his PC.  Much to my surprise he called me back a day later and thanked me for speeding up his PC.  He said it was quicker and the applications he opened were more responsive.   I hung up the phone in amazement. Usually the only time a user calls is when they have a problem, not to tell you how well something is working.  Obviously Diskeeper made quite an impact on him and his PC!

V-locity success story from our neighbor up north (Oregon)

by Colleen Toumayan 19. August 2009 09:11

I am enjoying V-locity. It has made a difference in performance, especially with some of my virtual machines.

One major feature I like is the built-in functionality to compact the VHD files. My hard drive was running low on space, but I knew my virtual machines weren’t using that much and V-locity told me which virtual hard drives to compact. I did that and it freed up a lot of space.  

We are running NextGen HER (Electronic Medical Records ) which generates hundreds of files daily, but we don’t have to worry because every night V-locity puts them in their place! The speed of our virtual guests and hosts and increased dramatically as well as our biggest file server that serves 170 users.  I also like how unobtrusive V-locity is… I don’t even notice that it is there really. I am excited to see Diskeeper [Corporation] on the cutting edge!

Achieve “Zero Downtime Migrations” with Diskeeper

by Derek 18. August 2009 10:48


Anyone can perform a network migration WITH downtime. WITHOUT downtime is another story.  If you’d like to find out how, check out The Network Migration Workbook: Zero Downtime Migration Strategies for Microsoft Networks by prominent Reseller and technical author, Karl Palachuk. Amongst the best practices in use is the full implementation of Diskeeper.

We maintain many networks and knowing Diskeeper has our back gives us peace of mind. Our installation checklist is really only comprised of monitoring the installation while the technician eats a pastry, then verifying that a few default settings. It is set-it-and-forget-it at its best.   We use and have recommend Diskeeper exclusively for over 15 years. We know it is the best of breed tool for maintaining optimal drive performance and health on all of our client servers and workstations.” -Karl Palachuck
