Diskeeper update defrags in background

Executive Software has rolled out a new ver­sion of its Diskeeper 7.0 file defragmentation utility that is designed to demand fewer system resources during operation.

Dubbed Diskeeper 7.0 Second Edition for Windows, the newest version of the highly popular system utility adds a feature called Quick Defragmentation that is designed to defrag recently created files. The company says the SE version also includes an improved utility for consolidating free space on the hard drive.

Although the SE version works only with Windows NT, 2000, and XP, a version that works with earlier versions of Windows is expected to be available by the time you read this. Executive Software maintains several versions of the program, including a manual Lite version that is free for download but can’t be automated and can only do one partition at a time.

Even though Windows includes a defragmentation utility, Diskeeper provides options the bundled utility lacks. You may find it a worthwhile addition to your system enhancement utilities.

Distributor: Pixel Productions
Price: $77 for update, $385 for server version, manual Lite version is free

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
