Keep Windows Systems Running Like New

Everyone knows the frustration of a Windows® laptop or workstation becoming progressively slower over time. Condusiv’s Diskeeper® 12 Professional prevents degradation in Windows performance by eliminating nearly all fragmentation from occurring at the Windows level, before files are written in a performance-penalized state. With its patented, proactive IntelliWrite® technology, Diskeeper keeps laptops and workstations running like new, resulting in increased productivity and lower costs by extending the useful life of existing hardware. IT professionals who support a fleet of laptops no longer wrestle with persistent performance HelpDesk calls.

Proactive and Efficient PC and Laptop Performance Optimization Where typical defragmentation utilities consume resources to operate, and perform defrag after the performance penalty has already been incurred, Diskeeper is the only proactive solution that solves the problem in real-time while running transparently in the background. Without Diskeeper, files are scattered around a volume instead of written in one place. Diskeeper’s IntelliWrite technology optimizes writes and subsequent reads by writing data sequentially, reducing seek time and the number of I/Os required to write a file or access it. Keep your business PCs and laptops running like new with Diskeeper Professional: Proactively eliminates performance-robbing fragmentation Eliminates the need to schedule disk maintenance during off-hours Easily deploys to hundreds of PCs via a central management console Operates with true “Set It and Forget It” functionality Extends the life of corporate laptops and workstations Dramatically improves boot-up time Eliminates application bottlenecks and increases business productivity Continuously optimizes without hampering system resources.

Diskeeper Professional Features
For IT professionals who need to deploy Diskeeper across a fleet of laptops or workstations, the Diskeeper Administration console enables seamless network deployment. For corporate PCs and laptops, Diskeeper Professional is the only highly efficient, proactive, Set It and Forget It® software for maximum performance—making it the #1 utility for keeping Windows systems running like new.
  • IntelliWrite® I/O Optimization Technology – Automatically prevents split I/Os from being generated when a file is typically broken into pieces before write.
  • InvisiTasking® Intelligent Monitoring Technology – Allows all background operations within the system to run with zero resource impact on current activities.
  • HyperBoot® File Access Technology – Strategically moves files into a sequential order that minimizes the number of I/O requests during the boot process.
  • HyperFast® SSD Optimizer Technology – Produces faster performance in solid state drives running on Microsoft operating systems. The HyperFast feature includes TRIM functionality and is enabled only if a solid-state drive is recognized.
  • Instant Defrag™ Engine – Immediately defrags newly fragmented files before they can slow performance. Instant Defrag is an engine that consolidates any fragments that were not prevented by IntelliWrite, instantaneously without the need to analyze the drive.
  • Disk Health Monitoring – Monitors SMART disk data, checks for critical file system problems, warns of critical problems or an imminent disk failure, generates alerts by e-mail or text messages for 24/7 monitoring.
  • System Monitoring – Monitors system environment activities and provides a summary of the statistical data gathered for system performance monitoring.
  • Terabyte Volume Engine® Technology – Engineered to rapidly defragment volumes with hundreds of thousands of files.
  • Efficient Mode – In addition to an extensive defrag mode, Efficient Mode offers the greatest net gain in system I/O resource savings ever available. It immediately targets and eliminates only fragmentation that directly affects system performance.
  • Free Space Consolidation Engine – Swiftly consolidates free space and tightly integrates with Instant Defrag to handle new fragmentation as soon as it is created.
  • Performance Map – Performance Map gives a quick "at-a-glance" indication of file access performance for each volume.
  • Enhanced Analysis Reports – Rich reporting functionality that displays health and performance gains for the system. Reports include: Fragmentation Analysis, Read and Write Access Time Improvement, File and Free Space Performance, and Disk Access I/Os Saved.
  • BOOT-TIME MODE – Safely performs Microsoft® recommended defragmentation of critical system files.
  • Network Management Support – Easily manage Diskeeper settings and functionality across the network through the Diskeeper Administrator edition or Group Policy.

Resource Requirements
The disk space requirements for Diskeeper depend on several factors. The Diskeeper installation package is about 60 MB. After the installation is complete, Diskeeper occupies about 46 MB of disk space. If Internet Explorer is not present on your computer, some other needed files (hhupd.exe, 50comupd.exe, and wintdist.exe) may be added. Further, your system may require a new or updated version of the Microsoft Management Console (MMC), which is less than 6 MB.

Additional Software Requirements
Diskeeper requires .NET 4. If .Net 4 is not installed on your system, Diskeeper will attempt to download and install it for you. A reboot may be required due to the .Net installation.

A Note About Firewalls
As a normal part of its operation, the Diskeeper Service (DkService.exe) acts as a Windows service on your system. If you are running a hardware or software firewall, you may see messages indicating Diskeeper Service is trying to act as a Windows service. These messages are expected; you can safely allow these events. This functionality is designed to allow for support for network operations (e.g. Remote Control) via Diskeeper Administrator.
You may also be notified that Diskeeper is trying to access the Internet. It is important to note that Diskeeper does not access the Internet (except when you specifically use the Check for Updates feature or you opt in to send performance data for analysis), but it does use Windows mechanisms that may trigger these alerts from your firewall. Again, these messages are expected and you can safely allow the events. If networkability or automatic update checking is not required, you can safely disable this.
