Raxco Software Releases PerfectDisk Defragmenter for Windows Vista

Award-Winning Defragmenter Is First Defragmenter to Support Microsoft's New Platform

GAITHERSBURG, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 7, 2006 -- Raxco Software, the worldwide leader in disk defragmentation software, announced today its award-winning PerfectDisk® now supports Microsoft's new Windows Vista™ operating system. PerfectDisk is the first third-party defragger to support Vista.

With the business version of Vista recently released to the public and the consumer version scheduled for January of 2007, the number of people running Vista on their PCs is growing rapidly. Because the NTFS file system has not changed with Vista, fragmentation is still a critical issue for users of the operating system. Vista's built-in defragger has critical limitations for users, including use of a multi-pass defrag engine, limited flexibility in scheduling when and how often it runs, lack of information reported to end users, and much more. PerfectDisk fills the major void in the built-in defragger and provides much more.

"As a Gold partner, we have worked closely with Microsoft® to bring this much needed and highly demanded support to our users," said Greg Hayes, manager of technical solutions at Raxco. "The thousands of users who have been downloading our free Vista beta every day for months have shown that the requirement is there, and we are pleased to meet their needs. This support follows a first-to-market tradition with PerfectDisk -- first and only to support large drives at no extra cost, first and only to support single-pass consolidated free space, first and only to support defragging on low free space drives, and many more innovations."

PerfectDisk is the winner of the 2006 Windows IT Pro Readers' Choice Award, 2006 Redmond Magazine's Best of the Best Readers' Choice Award, PC Magazine's Editors Choice Award, and numerous others. PerfectDisk, with full Vista support, is available immediately at www.raxco.com, through Ingram Micro, and through resellers around the world. A comparison chart is now available showing PerfectDisk's features compared to those of the Vista built-in defragmenter.
