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

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
