Back on November 18, 2009 I posted a review of the new Diskeeper Professional 2010. [See review here] In the original review I mention that the new DP 2010 came with IntelliWrite which the software maker claims will highly reduce the need for defraging. This new technology helps to keep your hard disk from becoming defragmented in the first place. So I decided to try DP 2010 for two months just to see how well or not so well the new technology works.
So the big question I had was does IntelliWrite work as the folks at DP claim? Yes it does. On my system ItelliWrite has been preventing over 95% + defragmented files. I have been running a manual defrag using DP 2010 once a week and it has been completing in less than five minutes, sometimes under 2 minutes. According to IntelliWrite statistics this morning, over 38,838 fragmented files have been prevented since 01-15-10 alone.
Second there is the question on how well DP 2010 works in the background? Only word I can think of to describe how well it works is ‘perfectly’. I have not noticed any slow down on my system. I have the software set to do its thing when the CPU is at 100% idle.
If you are a previous user of Diskeeper, you can purchase a single license upgrade copy at Amazon.com for only $34.49.
If you need to purchase a full license Amazon.com offers a single pack license for only $51.98.
FYI – I am using DP 2010 on my laptop which is currently running Windows 7 Ultimate, a dual-core AMD @ 2.1 MHz, 3 GB of RAM [another 4GB using Ready Boost], 150 GB hard disk. I have had this computer for 14 months and it is running just as well as it did when I first purchased it. I contribute this to keeping my system defragged, and also running Clary Utilities to keep it free from gunk.
