Raxco Software Extends Popular PerfectDisk® Trade-Up Offer to Diskeeper® Users

Flood of Requests Follows Microsoft's Guidance

GAITHERSBURG, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 26, 2006 -- Raxco Software, a Microsoft® Gold Partner and the worldwide leader in disk defragmentation software, announced today that due to overwhelming demand, it is extending its recently announced PerfectDisk® Trade-Up program for users of Microsoft's Defrag Manager product to include Diskeeper® users as well. Microsoft, which acquired Defrag Manager as part of its acquisition of Winternals, recently chose PerfectDisk as an alternative to the soon-to-be retired Defrag Manager.

"We were very pleased Microsoft recognized PerfectDisk, the only Microsoft Certified defragmenter, as an enterprise defragmentation option for Defrag Manager users," said Joe Abusamra, Raxco Software vice president of operations. "We didn't anticipate that Diskeeper users would have expectations that Raxco Software should provide a similar trade-up option for them. Since Microsoft's announcement we have had a significant number of calls about such an offer and we agree these users should be afforded the same opportunity to upgrade to PerfectDisk for their enterprise defragmentation needs. We are delighted to accommodate their requests, effective immediately."
