Hi,

Wondering if anyone has used Diskeeper before? I am thinking on buying it, but since i haven't used it, wanted to know if anyone in here has used or had any real world experience with it.

Thank you all in advance.

Last Time i used Diskeeper (2002-ish) it was just a glorified defrag tool. Basically used the same defrag techniques windows xp used but you could set a schedule of when to do it and so on. Pretty much a lazy man's task scheduler. It was uninstalled rather quickly.

Interesting, I mean it was only the 2002 version you used, so they must have made a lot of improvements on the current version (2010).

According to their website, Diskeeper does a better job in keeping the system defragmented than the Windows built in utility. But again it could just be a hype, to get people into buying their products. I will see if Cnet has any review on it.

Thanks Mr-Protocol.

I use TuneUp Utilities which has lots of awesome features, such as defragging, however it also cleans the registry, performs visual and network optimisations and much, much more.

If I were actually going to buy and defrag software, that would be the one I would buy.

They claimed the same back then. That it was better than windows, but I think it was the company the developed defrag for windows or something like that.

CCleaner works well enough.

I suggest looking into Defraggler as an alternative to Diskeeper. It's as good in my opinion and it's free. If you really want to justify spending money on a Windows defrag tool, look into O&O Defrag. It has background defrag'ing and wasn't nearly as resource intensive as Diskeeper was on my system before I switched to Defraggler.

Just my 2 cents.

Resource intensive, how much did it used to consume on an average?
