Editors' Review

+
The beauty of Diskeeper is its simplicity. All you do is load it and schedule it to launch, and it keeps your computer running quickly without the need to manually defrag. Unfortunately, obtaining the application isn't as simple as using it. You must visit the publisher site, fill out a form, then wait for an e-mail containing the download. The program is tremendously efficient, increasing our test computer's read time by more than 20 percent. One of Diskeeper's best features is the "Set It and Forget It" scheduler that runs the program in the background. For example, you can set it to automatically start when your PC is idling in screensaver mode, or you can schedule it run every day or only on weekends. Another bonus is that Diskeeper keeps your swap file at the front of the disk, which makes information transferring considerably faster. The performance and functionality are superior to similar programs, and the user interface is intuitive. Besides the aforementioned hassles getting the program on our machine, our main complaint concerns the rather short 15-day trial period. Still, since home and professional versions are available from the same installer, Diskeeper is suited to a wide range of users seeking better system performance.

"No other"

November 26, 2005  |  By hardfreak

 |  Version: Diskeeper 10

Pros

I've tried PerfectDisk (resource hog) and WIndows defrag utility is not as effective, but this defragger program is the best. I'm a gamer and performance is important, and this program has improved loading times and apps start faster.

"It is malicious software that disables your other utilities."

November 21, 2005  |  By conniebaze

 |  Version: Diskeeper 10

Pros

None could be found. Will never use again.

Cons

Installed and ran Diskeeper. Only defragged .5 % of files, saying not necessary to defrag files. Right. Turned to my Windows defrag and Norton Speed Disk. Upon opening, BOTH WERE NOW DISKEEPER! Program overwrote them both. Still can't defrag, antivirus doesn't work, and now that computer is hosed, can't run files and settings transfer to save data prior to now necessary complete reformat/reinstall.

Wonder if Windows or Norton realize their apps being sabatoged.

"Very unstable, does a good job when running."

November 01, 2005  |  By skyjacker

 |  Version: Diskeeper 10

Pros

This software is fast, and does a fairly good job of defragging a drive.

Cons

Program stops running every 2 or 3 days, and a message pops up "can't connect to the service. Have had tech. people try to get it to stay on my machine... but no luck. I am going to trash it and cut my losses.

"Garbage"

October 10, 2005  |  By Gadgets

 |  Version: Diskeeper 10

Cons

Crap! Installed it twice on my Win2k machine, software installs without errors, and loads. However as soon as it loads it attempts to read your HD (as expected) but then I get an error stating it is "unable to load or contact the diskeeper service" you have the only option to click "OK" and the whole program exits. Seeing as this is number 9, you'd think they would have figured this out by now. Am I impressed? NO, am I glad they had a trial before I bought it, you bet! My advice, try something else. If this screws up on install, what will happen when it messes with your data?!

"Get something better"

September 30, 2005  |  By Anonymous220

 |  Version: Diskeeper 10

Cons

I prefer PerfectDisk and O & O, these two defrag makes my windows running more stable unlike Diskeeper, it makes my windows running fast but it swings my mouse running faster and while open on Start>Program Files it eats lot of memory and caused my windows running slower. This is my point, and i dont like Diskeeper maybe at 1st u will find out it really improve but..at the end u will not, trust me get prefectdisk or O&O instead of Diskeeper.

"The Best"

September 27, 2005  |  By ace221

 |  Version: Diskeeper 10

Pros

It's faster and defragments better than the traditional windows Disk Defragmenter. I don't know how, but it somehow made my internet faster.

Cons

Although it's good, it replaces the windows Disk Defragmenter. Still I highly recomend it.

Pros

Professional interface, ease of use with very helpful explanation, 4 options of defrag method, use very less PC resource, "set is and forget it" to defrag during screen saver is cool idea!!

Cons

I normally use disk max performance option but does not feel gain in performance even the program said that they will make 30% faster after defrag

"The Best defragmentation software available!"

September 05, 2005  |  By gabelhocc*12

 |  Version: Diskeeper 10

Pros

I would absolutely recommend this product to my friends and colleagues. Theirs is nothing on the market that compares to Diskeeper. I especially appreciate the minimal amount of RAM that it uses when it is active.

The price is right and the software is stable.
