I've never heard of Perfect Disc, but I can tell you from experience that Diskeeper Pro is a great program. It keeps my drives fast. I highly recommend it. :D

I use diskeeper also. Great program. I think newer version (9.0) is around the corner.

What's perfect disk, by the way? :roll:

Perfect Disk is a defragging software.

both are good they do, do the same thing there better than microsofts defrag program in windows, perfect disk is easy 2 use and diskkeeper pro is easier 2 use. I would go with diskkeeper. Is it diskeeper or diskkeeper spelling wise.

Here's the poop on PerfectDisk 6.0. I started using Diskkeeper first and then switched to PerfectDisk and have been using it for about two years. I really have nothing against Diskkeeper; just like PerfectDisk a little better. Just one thing, and this may be a little lame but I felt that Diskkeeper defragged too quickly to do a thorough job.

Diskeeper.

Then the defrag utility in Win98 must be the best one out, it's the slowest one I've ever used. :P

It's funny how two people can look at the same thing, yet see something completely different. Diskeeper's speed has always been a 'plus' for me.

FYI for anyone interested - the included defragmenter in Windows XP is basically a very lite and limited version of Diskeeper. Executive Software developed both:

The changes are here. They added a couple features, improved the engine, and added some scheduling options.

Right now, I'm definitely (note that it is spelled correctly) leaning towards Perfect disk. I've used it quite a few times and to me, it seems to do a better job.

Plus, at work we have Diskeeper 5.0. server. It says on the box that it's 2000 compatible, however when I try to install it, it says it's not compatible.
So, I download the latest update and try that. Same thing.

So, fuck diskeeper.

Raxco Software PerfectDisk V6 just got a pretty good review from Redmondmag.com - This application has some cool features that Diskeeper V8 lacks. Here's just a few.

- Windows Certification - application meets all Microsoft criteria for driver compliance, while Diskeeper V8.0 is not certified

- Smart Placement Defrag - arranges free space in contiguous blocks & optimizes your files based on the frequency with which they are accessed. This helps reduce wear and tear and hopefully prolonging the life of the drive. Diskeeper uses a random placement strategy.

- Free Space Requirement - PerfectDisk requires a minimum of 5% available free space while Diskeeper suggests a minimum of 20% free space.

For more information, read the White Paper titled Unique Differences Between PerfectDisk V6 and Diskeeper V8 on their website here

Nice info ML,
I will point out one difference however..

I run Diskeeper 8 Pro and Server and in both versions there is an option to have it watch your program activity for more efficient and smart defragging...

According to what I've seen - thats their version of Smart placement.

Just FYI
