PerfectDisk Unique With Ability to Place MFT for Improved Performance

GAITHERSBURG, MD--(Marketwire - August 21, 2007) - Raxco Software, the leader in disk defragmentation software, confirmed today that it is the only disk defragmentation utility that places the Master File Table (MFT) on disk drives where an additional 10% - 15% performance improvement can be realized on NTFS drives.

The MFT is typically placed at the start of the disk space available to the file system. In Windows® XP and later versions of Windows, Microsoft® has determined that performance can be improved by up to 15 percent by placing the MFT 3 gigabytes further into the disk space. PerfectDisk® takes advantage of this Microsoft recommendation and places the MFT on the drive accordingly. No other disk defragmentation utility provides this performance enhancement.

Winner of numerous awards, including Windows IT Pro Readers' Choice, Redmond Magazine's Best of the Best Readers' Choice, PC Magazine's Editors' Choice, and top-rated 5 stars from CNET editors and, Raxco's PerfectDisk answers the unique needs of gaming users as well as the enterprise, SMB and home office environments.
