My ratingWrite review
Lot's of features
Shows how many resources have been saved
Can't see any HDD speed improvements
Ugliest GUI I've seen
Latest version was released in 2012, that's 2 years ago.
When I pressed 'start defragmenting' it showed 0% and nothing happened
I started to use Raxco PerfectDisk when found out about it..
-Installation was simple
-Automatic defrag did just that
-Awful user interface
-Automatic defrag increased read/write speed, but then suddenly over a 24 hour period worsened it again
-Resulted in 2 HDDs in 8 drive RAID6 with reading errors, which eventually RAID could not read; HDDs were fine, just data corrupted by Diskeeper
(Diskeeper corrupsted OS years ago when I tested it also, and had to reformat and reinstall)
-Automatic defrag kept running whilst burning a disc, resulting in burn failure/coaster
-After 2 trials in the last few years, I have found Diskeeper to corrupt data and cause drive failure, and would not recommend at all
-Instead would recommend Windows 7 or 8 inbuilt disk optimizer, or PerfectDisk if something more is required
It probably does the job if you don't ever plan on customizing it.
Horrible interface. It looks like they were going for a quasi win8 like experience. Howerver, very little planning was put into it. They've removed all the toolbars so instead of getting to what you want logically with 3 or 4 clicks, you need to go through ton of different screens.
I'm not a big fan of win8, mind you, however, I can admit their interface puts this to shame.
I was a long time user of this software but now I've switched to perfect disk. I'm a fan of useable interface and always will be. Keep the clutter, at least I have everything visible and accessible.
Expensive, and the GUI..
I never recommended it
nothing at all
Just consider the following: if the advantages proposed by the software are actually notorious, why were not taken by the windows operating system?
Works like stated and improves disk by alot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Expensive and interfernce is ugly.
Looks like an Iobit- if someone enjoy them.
after a trial period with this software from Condusiv Technologies very easy go for Perfect Disk from Raxco
Interface is bad. Not easy to understand how to navigate around in this soup.
This new Diskeeper version 2012 from Condusiv is a huge
disappointment compared with diskeeper 2011 version, stay with 2011 version, a crystal clear interface and easy to learn. If the company dont change back the interface asap better go for Perfect Disk.
can use Alt-left and Alt-right cursor arrows to go back/forward in screens visited
.. fails to active SMART, and fails all disk and drive information reports
.. doesn't evne report size of drive or free space.
.. GUI appears to actively defeat efforts of Snagit to identify subregions for capture
.. Volume Performance Summary useless -- doesn't even show size of volume, free space
.. GUI doesn't respond to wheel mouse resizing -- fixed size display only
.. can't even see Volume Map without scrolling - Diskeeper 2011 got entire map in 803x568
.. can't select/copy text from any window
.. Snagit 10 can't capture/read text from any window either
.. appears in All Programs as 'Condusiv Technologies' rather than 'Diskeeper 2012'
GUI is huge step backward from 2011.
Not even reporting volume sizes, free space. Inquiry into tech support about inability to access SMART data.
+ Does recognize and spare SSD Drives from Defragmenting
+ Intelliwrite REALLY prevents Fragmentation!
+ Noticeable Performance Gains without doing any Setup
+ Nice and fast Support via Online Chat on Workdays
+ Fair Pricing Policies
- Performance Reports for max. 12 Months only
- GUI is better than Version 11 but still confusing
I have used many Defragmenters before. Windows Defrag, O&O, Norton Speed Disk (not availabe anymore for years now) and some others i dont even remember. All of them had one in comon: Either i had to defrag manually, or the automatic defragmentation slowed down my PC. I am Using Diskeeper Since Version 10. Its the first Defragmentation Software i know, wich manages doing defragmentation in the background without having me being aware of it. I have tested the IntelliWrite Feature with other defragmenters. It really does prevent fragmentation. That makes Diskeeper unique in business.
With Version 12, Diskeeper Professional is mainly simplified in terms of buyment options. Now there are only 4 Versions. Home, Professional, Administrator and Server. Administrator only makes sense for those who need to remotely administrate other installations. Also it has also become slightly cheaper. There are Upgrades and so-called Upgrade Assurances, wich can be reneved infinately For example Diskeeper 12 Professional it starts from about 14 USD (10 Euros) per Year. Since there's always a new Version once per Year, you could say, they are being really nice to their customers. There is an Online Email Support and even a live-chat Support on Weekdays. On the live chat i have been helped several times within minutes! Perfect and friendly Support!
Set it , Forget it .....
User interface could have been a bit better :P
this is the most complete defragger in this planet !!!! although the complicated UI may create some complications for newbees !!!! but they'll get used to it :)
