Defrag: Critical Technology -- Available Today

Defrag Software Keeps Computers Running Consistently at Maximum Performance, Driving the Success of Any Business for Years to Come

BURBANK, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 28, 2006 -- Any successful business person knows that when it comes to making a sound investment, proper research is an absolute must. Only after carefully weighing the pros and cons of the investment in question, can a suitable decision be made. Of course, evaluating a software investment is no different, and with regard to defrag software especially, the incorrect choice can significantly affect the performance of your computers in the future.

Now, what exactly is defragmentation (defrag)? To understand, we must first cover its opposite -- fragmentation. Fragmentation can be defined as whole files that are broken up in to numerous pieces and scattered to various locations on the hard drive. Fragmentation also occurs through the wiping out of continuous free space across the hard drive. Although unknown to some, fragmentation builds up on a computer every single time you use it.

Inevitably, as time goes on, we find that our computers mysteriously begin to gradually slowdown and even freeze completely -- wasting our time and backlogging our workload.

Of course, you don't have to take my word for it. Check out Windows IT Pro's "The Impact of Disk Fragmentation" whitepaper, by Joe Kinsella.

To remedy this fragmentation, you need software. Defrag software is fairly inexpensive and clearly gets the job done, taking your computers through a "fountain of youth" of sorts, restoring them to their initial functionality and performance and then some.

In fact, software such as Diskeeper 2007 by Diskeeper Corporation, with its InvisiTasking™ technology, is truly automatic and rids your computers of fragmentation on-the-fly as it occurs, while only using idle resources.

Computers cost money and we work hard for it. For most of us, a sudden computer crash would be disastrous. The additional time and money necessary to repair it can sometimes be irreplaceable.

We owe it to ourselves to install defrag software. It will help us make up for time lost in the past, and ensure our computers a promising future.
