Francesco Posted January 28, 2006 Share Posted January 28, 2006 I just checked out the next diskeeper 10 (trial can be downloaded here: http://www.executive.com/downloads/menu.aspx ) and it seems to be a lot better than the previous one. First of all they remade the interface: now it's better organized and looks better. They added a new defragmentation method called I-FAAST (this remembers me of perfectdisk's smartplacement) that sorts files based on their access time (I think it runs only as a job, I don't think that kind of defragmentation can be run manually).Also, thank god, they finally added an option to prevent defragmentation of very large files, since diskeeper really sucks with those files: it hangs the pc completely until those files have been completely defragmented . I was astonished that after just 10 diskeeper versions they fixed out this "small" issue.Now it's also possible to add more than a single schedule (you can add 2 schedules for the same drive, plus the ifaast schedule that makes them 3). And like all that stuff wasn't enough (in the previous versions changes were pratically only in the interface) now the smart i/o seems to work better (I don't know if they changed that or what).What do you think? Could diskeeper 10 be a real alternative to perfectdisk 7?BTW I forgot to say that the setup contains both 64bit and 32bit editions. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
