Keeping Older Machines Running by Preventing Fragmentation

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - December 31, 2009) - In economic times such as these, purchases of new equipment slow down, and it becomes a necessity to patch up that older gear and keep it running as long as possible. This modus operandi, affecting companies and individuals alike, spreads across the boards from the car you drive to work in the morning to the computer you log into when you get there. You do your best to maintain that vehicle so that it will make that daily commute, and you do everything possible to delay costly hardware upgrades for your company.

It would be nice if there were one element or factor that, if implemented, would keep machinery running beyond its expected lifetime. For a car, there doesn't seem to be such a single item, despite the gasoline and oil commercials that would have you believe otherwise. It requires regular maintenance of fluids, belts, tires and a host of other things, and hopefully the larger components such as the transmission and the drive train hold out for the life of the vehicle.

For a computer, though, there is one thing you can do that, if done correctly, will keep a computer running well past "its time." That action is to see to the full address of file fragmentation -- a malady that slows performance to a crawl and greatly impacts hardware reliability. When fragmentation is completely addressed, as with Diskeeper® performance software, fragmentation's impact is virtually reduced to nothing.

Utilizing a new revolutionary technology called IntelliWrite™ fragmentation prevention, Diskeeper 2010 intelligently writes files to the disk to prevent up to 85 percent of fragmentation from occurring. Coupled with superior defragmentation technology, Diskeeper 2010 delivers a complete performance solution for every Windows system at every site, and goes far beyond what defragmentation alone can achieve. Significant savings are also achieved by reducing energy consumption and cooling -- even more than is done with conventional defragmentation.

So at least for computers, there is one action that can be taken to bolster the older equipment and keep it running: prevent fragmentation with Diskeeper 2010.
