Administrative Time Saved With Automatic Defragmentation

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - June 11, 2009) - We've all been through it, especially in the computing arena. You purchase a nifty new software program that for example, is supposed to monitor your network traffic, alert you to potential issues, and advise solutions. Sounds like just the thing to save administrative overhead! When you get the software installed however, you find that you have to manually enter each and every computer on the system, each and every network route, and all hardware specs as well. Once you have completed all that, it prompts you every day for any potential updates to the data with an annoying pop-up, and when you go to access the report you find it complex and confusing. Such a product can be soundly pronounced to have not saved you any time whatsoever.

The same can happen when you purchase a defragmenter touted as "automatic." Once again you're a bit excited that you're going to save system admin time. Once you've loaded it up however, it is prompting you for schedules for each drive to be defragmented or you can simply accept the defaults. Now an experienced IT person must devote some hours to making sure the schedules applied to each drive will actually be adequate. Today many systems must remain up and running 24X7 so that job becomes a real chore in just finding a time on some of them when the defragmenter can run at all, let alone when it would best be done.

A computer system is dynamic so is subject to constant change in conditions. As time goes by the defragmentation software must be continually checked and schedules re- done as necessary. Once again, administrative time has been added instead of saved.

One defragmentation solution advertised as "automatic" which fully and completely fits the bill is Diskeeper® software with InvisiTasking® technology. In this case you'll load it up, start it, and walk away -- never having to think about defrag again. Your systems will simply and invisibly have performance and reliability maximized while you and your staff attend to far more important matters. Administrative time is truly saved by between 5 and 25 percent by actual statistics.

Diskeeper Corporation's proprietary InvisiTasking technology allows defrag to occur in the background whenever idle system resources are available. Since there is never a negative performance hit from defragmentation, scheduling is never needed. All you get is greatly improved access time for users and cessation of many disk hangs and crashes -- without any of the administrative headaches.

Using Diskeeper, you know that you'll really reduce administrative overhead.
