Raxco Software's PerfectDisk Awarded PC Magazine's 'Editor's Choice' Second Year Running

PerfectDisk 7.0 Noted for Superior Enterprise Ability and Ease of Use

GAITHERSBURG, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 18, 2005 -- Raxco Software, the worldwide leader in disk defragmentation software, announced today that PC Magazine has selected PerfectDisk® 7.0 as the Editor's Choice following a multi-utility review by the publication. This is the second year in a row that PerfectDisk has received the Editor's Choice designation by the magazine in a head-to-head face off with competitive market offerings.

"With superior enterprise abilities and a shell that will please users of all levels, PerfectDisk provides a complete and compelling defrag solution," states the review published in the May 24th edition of PC Magazine. "For enterprise systems, PerfectDisk supports Active Directory®, so individual users may act as PerfectDisk administrators. Better yet, scheduled defrag operations can be reused for multiple machines across the network with a few clicks in a wizard, a sure time-saver for administrators," the reviewer's comments state.

Already the fastest and most complete defragmentation tool available, PerfectDisk 7.0 utilizes a unique peer-to-peer architecture to allow enterprise management, including deployment, scheduling, and reporting, from any system. PerfectDisk also defragments more files, including all metadata files, than any other defragmenter, and consolidates free space in a single pass.

In last year's PC Magazine Editor's Choice review of PerfectDisk, the reviewer noted, "Want the largest possible area of contiguous free space? Raxco's PerfectDisk 6.0 can supply it in a single pass. The result was a huge block of free space that will delay future fragmentation, as will the placement of less used clusters at the beginning of the drive." The review later added, "PerfectDisk is an excellent solution for systems that routinely process immense files."

"The market has long recognized the superior capabilities of PerfectDisk, as evidenced by global enterprises and resellers such as Ingram Micro weighing in favor of Raxco's defrag solution," said Robert Nolan, president and CEO of Raxco Software. "With PC Magazine providing its recognition for two years running, I believe the message that we have been delivering to the market, with a key point being that large areas of consolidated free space have a significant impact on a business' bottom-line, is being heard," he added.

PerfectDisk has long been the defragmenter with more Microsoft® certifications than any other defragmenter on the market and has achieved the highest standards in excellence. PerfectDisk 7.0 was the first defragmenter certified by Microsoft, with independent testing from VeriTest, the testing division of Lionbridge, for Windows Server™ 2003 and Windows® 2000 Server.
