Allied Home Mortgage Recaptures Costly Disk Space With Raxco Software's PerfectDisk® for Exchange

Automation Tool Helps Regain 30-40 Percent of Drive Space Each Quarter

GAITHERSBURG, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 4, 2006 -- Raxco Software, the worldwide leader in disk defragmentation software, announced today that Allied Home Mortgage Capital Corporation has deployed PerfectDisk® for Exchange to automatically defragment and compact its Exchange data stores, recapturing 30-40 percent of disk drive space in the process. Managing the performance of Allied Home Mortgage's technology, especially those tools used for communication, such as Microsoft® Exchange, is one of the most critical aspects of the corporate office's technology support efforts.

With approximately 4,000 employees in over 600 locations in 50 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands, Allied Home Mortgage had a loan volume of approximately $10 billion in 2005. Allied's thousands of Exchange users generate massive volumes of email every day. As these emails are deleted from users' mailboxes, a large amount of unusable white space is created. Every three months, Allied runs PerfectDisk for Exchange to recapture this large volume of wasted space.

"PerfectDisk for Exchange provides the management and monitoring we need to automate the otherwise time-consuming process of defragmenting and compacting our Exchange data stores following our quarterly mailbox cleanup," said David Langston, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer at Allied Mortgage. "Technology such as PerfectDisk enables us to effectively and efficiently support our customers -- the Allied Mortgage workforce -- which vastly outnumbers our IT staff. The Raxco Software suite provides an invaluable benefit to our team in terms of optimizing our Exchange network performance."

"PerfectDisk for Exchange is a proven time-saver for thousands of Exchange and IT administrators around the world," said Joe Abusamra, vice president of operations at Raxco Software. "We are pleased that we are able to provide a company of Allied's stature with an important piece of their IT service."
