What do you do when you already have the best disk defragmenter on the market and you've fixed all the bugs? This is the problem Executive Software was faced with. They wanted to release a new version, but what else can a defragmenter do?

The answer? How about including remote installation in the product. Now from one console you can manage the defragmentation of all the computers on your network and roll out Diskeeper across your network. What a great idea.

Should you upgrade? If you're not already using Diskeeper 6.2 then it is a no brainer. Upgrade today. The speed increase from the earlier products to 6.2 is amazing. If you're already running 6.2, I would hold off unless you need the remote installation feature or, like me, you're a new software junkie.

If you're trying to get by with the disk defragmenter that comes with Windows 2000, please see my article at http://www.serverwatch.com/tutorials/article.php/1475821 for all the reasons you should be using Diskeeper instead.

License Online lists the Small Business Version 7.0, which includes one Server and five Workstation licenses for $249.85, which seems like a pretty good deal.


What do you do when you already have the best disk defragmenter on the market and youve fixed all the bugs? If you're Executive Software, you take the power and functionality already in Diskeeper and add remote installation capabilities.
