This is a software utility that defragments the hard disk on the system.
Every system, every network, every home and home office suffers from the effects of fragmentation. Due to the very way files get allocated on a hard disk, fragmentation is bound to occur over time. When a significant percentage of the disk is fragmented, the disk accesses slow down, pulling down the overall system performance. It`s always a better strategy to prevent fragmentation from happening and work with a clean, fast disk. This Diskeeper disk defragmenter software can help you keep your disks in clean shape most of the time. One of the strategies used by the tool is to prevent fragmentation to occur. It uses the so called intelliWrite to write intelligently so that a large part of the fragmentation does not happen.
Most fragmentation can be prevented. Disks without fragmentation significantly speeding up file reads and writes, boot-ups, backups and AV scan. Such clean non fragmented disks will use less energy as I/O times should be faster in general. Consequently it will require less cooling and the disks are likely to survive longer. While these considerations may not be as important at home, it becomes significant when a large number of disks are in use, in a data center for example. This defragmenter software also includes powerful defrag engines to take care of whatever fragmentation does happen despite all the prevention measures. Since it runs in real time and uses very low resources, there should not be any significant performance penalty in using it. When specifically doing defrag, there is a visual display that tells you how it is progressing. The interface, in general, is simple and easy to use.
