Editors' Review

+

Maintaining proper disk hygiene is like going to the dentist: You do it because you have to, but it's rarely easy and almost never pleasant. PerfectDisk is a friendly alternative that picks up where Windows' Disk Defragmenter leaves off, adding powerful features, an attractive interface, and a top-notch help file with clear instructions and definitions.

In addition to the standard defragmentation process, it offers a SmartPlacement option, which analyzes usage patterns and organizes data to minimize future fragmentation. Another useful option is offline defragmentation, which optimizes parts of the drive, such as the Master File Table and the page file, that can't be modified while Windows is running. On your next bootup, PerfectDisk takes over, optimizes the selected files, and lets Windows proceed with start-up. The interface features big buttons, bold but complimentary colors, and is short on drawbacks.

The program also offers statistical analysis, scheduled maintenance, and the ability to defragment remote computers running another copy of PerfectDisk. That last feature is perfect for IT staffers, but we recommend the app to home users, too. At its price, PerfectDisk isn't a bargain--but getting this close to perfect doesn't come cheap.

"Perfectdisk 12.5 is a great investment"

December 08, 2011  |  By bobmitmen

 |  Version: PerfectDisk Professional 12.5

Pros

I have used it on my SSD for about six months. It instinctively knows the difference between my SSD and HDD and makes adjustments. It pretty much uses Data consolidation on the SSD vs Smart Placement on my HDD. Together, both drives work fast and in harmony! New features are a plus. Find duplicates and clean out files one doesn't need can be handy.

Cons

None! Product does what it is designed to do and more

Summary

If you want your system to run GREAT, then use Raxco Perfectdisk. I have tried others and nothing can compare to this great product. The Customer support team at Raxco is pro-active and takes good care of everyone. No question ever goes unanswered. An investment well worth the time and effort. A+ to Raxco Perfectdisk

"Annoying update, not worthwhile"

December 07, 2011  |  By Miomar

 |  Version: PerfectDisk Professional 12.5

Pros

Easy installation, clean interface.

Cons

No possibility anymore to block the auto update function and do a check manually. With this version the program will decide and think for you. I think many users do not like this.
After the update you are stuck with leftovers and files you do not need (about 68 MB) Remember the day you were glad with a HD of 20 MB... Context help is not complete or is giving errors.

Summary

The update is not worthwhile, a big annoyance.

"FANTASTIC, STABLE, THOROUGH PRODUCT!"

November 20, 2011  |  By Dustyn

 |  Version: PerfectDisk Professional 12.5

Pros

Builds upon all existing features from 12.0 with the return of Space Management tab for Professional versions only. (if not now, will be coming back soon)

Cons

If you are an existing 12.0 customer, the 12.5 upgrade is a free upgrade, however the new licensing upgrade system for 12.5 is a complete joke. Shouldn't have to go through all that trouble just to get the 12.5 upgrade for free.

Summary

Not too sure what 12.5 brings to table over 12.0 but it's just as stable and offers a plethora of defrag options just like 12.0 did. Only NEW noticeable difference is the return of Space Management.
