    "Looks like it does a lot, but..."

    October 8, 2009  |   By blegs385521

    Version: Diskeeper 2009

    Pros

    Has anyone done any type of performance tests to measure whether this program actually improves performance more than Windows built in Defrag utility? I would becurious to see the results.

    Cons

    Too many options for the average home computer user. Paying a decent amount of money for an app that may not do any more than Windows does for itself.

    "Love it..."

    September 20, 2009  |   By Wreckaho

    Version: Diskeeper 2009

    Pros

    I have been using Diskeeper since 04 in conjunction with Cyberscrub (since version 3.5) on my computers (custom builds) and laptop. My systems and laptop have been running flawlessly (XP and Vista) for many years and they perform as good as new.

    Cons

    None to think of.

    Summary

    Degrag is quick and unnoticeable, manual defrag is very quick.
    Well worth the investment.

    "Bloatware, doesn't support Win 2000"

    September 3, 2009  |   By cdb002

    Version: Diskeeper 2009

    Pros

    Can't say, since it didn't run

    Cons

    One large package even if you only want defrag, hence big download, takes forever to decompress itself, etc., only then checks the version of Windows. Unlike what the CNET site says, it then announces that it does not support Win 2000.

    Summary

    Bloatware, doesn't support Win 2000, older versions that might are unavailable. Don't go near it if all you want is a defragmenter.

    "Efficient Program"

    August 31, 2009  |   By slyjones4461

    Version: Diskeeper 2009

    Pros

    Cost and background resources usage

    Cons

    I am unsure if I have to start it from the START MENU everytime or load it at start

    Summary

    I really like its ability to operate in the background,

    "Best defragmenteron the market"

    August 27, 2009  |   By khrbek

    Version: Diskeeper 2009

    Pros

    Easy to use, runs in the background, no overhead and great support

    Cons

    No manual defragmentation scheduling option

    Summary

    I switched to Diskeeper from Perfect Disk about 2 years ago and am glad I did. The Diskeeper product is easier to use and the results I am seeing far surpasses anything I saw with Perfect Disk. Plus, when I ran into some problems with Diskeeper, Tech Support quickly resolved my issue in a friendly manner. I can't wait to see what feature will be available in the next version of Diskeeper.

    "Good and efficient but not user friendly"

    August 20, 2009  |   By zhuoxiwang

    Version: Diskeeper 2009

    Pros

    I love most of the things that it can do to defrag HD including external HDs or USB devices and can manage them automatically.

    Cons

    Slow program activation.

    Summary

    I don't like their activation way by using license.dal. I bought the software with no license key but got a license.dat instad.Sometimes its difficult to activate it I can't find any direct activation of the software. Have to wait sometimes later for auto-detection of the license.dal and have to wait for verification. Its really not convenient and not user friendly. (ps: this case is not for those have a license key)

    "The Best Defragment Tool"

    August 19, 2009  |   By awienaz

    Version: Diskeeper 2009

    Pros

    It doesn't slow down my computer, it works silently in the background, the hard disk have been performed a lot better since.

    Cons

    Overwhelm by the GUI, seems a lot to learn and do.

    Summary

    Been using Diskeeper since 2002, I didn't find any quite parallel nor superior with what Diskeeper can do. Overall, if the HD is yours to concerned, this is the tool for you.

    Updated on Aug 19, 2009

    Wow, it's freaking me out! I never know it until today. Beside, I never care about any religion that their concern is to make money. I don't think it's "Ethical," for any religion followers to work and live for the money only. Everyone needs money, though it may hard to live without it and be happy. Let's not make our life so religiously desperate for the money to be happy.
