News: New Version of Diskeeper Available
One excellent piece of software that’s worth having on your PC is Diskeeper, an automatic disk defragmenter. It’s not an exciting branch of the software world, but disk defragmentation — your files ending up in little bits and pieces all over your hard drive — “cripples system performance while also causing needless wear and tear on disk drives”. For once they’re not exaggerating.
Diskeeper is now into version 8, out today. I haven’t checked it out yet, but it’s the kind of software you install and then just forget about. Indeed, it has a feature called “Set it and Forget It” which does all the defragmenting you need on the fly. Well worth checking out.
